CUTS Supperclub by Forza Win & Ginger Pig

07/08/2013

CUTS is a new London supperclub, a collaboration between Forza Win and The Ginger Pig that was born "from a mutual love of meat and flames".

Set in a disused pickle factory in Hackney, CUTS aims to recreate the atmosphere of an Italian-style summer grigliata (BBQ), where everyone sits together at a communal table sharing the food.

I attended the CUTS launch party two weeks ago and really enjoyed the setting, food and atmosphere. The hard work put in by the Forza Win / Ginger Pig team is clear in all the small details and everything seemed to run perfectly, even on their first night. Their passion and dedication to creating a top quality event was evident.

I didn't really feel transported back to Italy and I mean this as a good thing. CUTS is a quintessentially East London party combined with a few elements of the Italian dining tradition: many people around a table sharing plates of hot grilled meat. I enjoyed making conversation with strangers while eating delicious meat and drinking Aperol Spritz and great wine.

Three cuts of meat are cooked by Chef Nick Fulton every night, on a custom-built grill and using the English firewood and charcoal from the London Log Company.
