You think January’s a dull month? Think again – even after the frivolities of the festive season, Brightonians are churning out unique and wonderful food events  to tantalise and treat yourself in the winter months. Here’s a round-up of some January highlights.

January's Top 3 Pop-Up Restaurants in BrightonDeccan Tiffin’s Maharani SupperClub

With a life-long passion for good food inspired by parents who were both enthusiastic cooks and gourmands, Priya was fortunate enough to spend her childhood travelling the globe with them and of course food was central to those experiences.

Inspired by this, she launched Deccan Tiffin in November 2012 offering curry kits, home-made meals and recipes, drawing on her detailed knowledge of, and passion for Indian cuisine.

The first Deccan Tiffin Supperclub took place last year and was attended by some of Brighton’s most influential foodies to much critical acclaim. Her recipes and expertise have caught a lot of attention for the skill shown in exploring various aspects of Indian cuisine to present a stunning multi-course menu at her gorgeous regency villa in Hove.

In an example of the wealth of knowledge brought to the table, the theme of the January supperclub is the food of the Peshwa rulers of Maharashtra who reigned from 1749 to 1818 until the end of the Maratha Empire. This cuisine is known for its spicy coconut and garlic flavoured preparations and you’ll be treated to no less than five freshly prepared courses based on recipes handed down for generations. With a cocktail on arrival and after-dinner liqueur included in the price Priya’s Maharani Supperclub is an amazingly good value treat for anyone who likes a bit of spice and wants to explore the wonderful world of Indian cuisine.

Location: Victorian Villa, Hove

January's Top 3 Pop-Up Restaurants in BrightonDuck Soup Project: Return of the (pe)King!

Innovative chef Ed Heller (That Chef Bloke) treated us to some amazing and outlandish events last year, from plant-to-plate dining on a Hove rooftop micro farm, through obscene chilli challenges, to nose-to-tail eating experiences in the North Laine.

One of his most successful escapades to date has been the intriguing Duck Soup Project and, after a break head-cheffing at a Hampshire Dining Pub of The Year, Ed’s bringing it back to Brighton for 2015.

Billed as an 8-10 course Pan-Asian blind tasting menu he’s not keen to give too much away about what will actually be on the plates. Key to the experience is trying new things with new people and the formula proved to be a roaring success across several sold-out events last year.

At 25 quid for 8-10 courses you’re guaranteed value but only one thing is certain… Duck Soup!

Location: North Laine, Brighton
Date & Time: Saturday 31st January, 7pm

January's Top 3 Pop-Up Restaurants in BrightonM&J’s Burns Night Feast

It might feel like the festive season is over but just look north of the border and remember the annual celebratory tribute to the life, works and spirit of the great Scottish poet, Robert Burns (1759-1796), best known for Auld Lang Syne, celebrated on, or about, the Bard’s birthday. And for any Sassenachs in Brighton that want to get involved, M&J supperclub are opening up their cosy St James’ Street cafe for an evening of Haggis and neeps, a wee dram and a bit of poetry.

The price includes a welcome glass of fizz,  three courses of cock-a-leekie soup with soda bread, through the haggis neeps and tatties, on to a dessert of Cranachan with a homemade oatcake.

There’ll be a wee dram included and round the evening off with coffee and a homemade oatcake. Let’s let the bard himself have the last word:

O Lord, since we have feasted thus,

Which we so little merit,

Let Meg now take away the flesh,

And Jock bring in the spirit!
