Maharani Supper Club by Deccan Tiffin, 12 February 2017

Posted in My Local Finds

There aren’t many experiences that please me more than trying new flavours or food combinations or meeting like-minded foodies with a genuine passion for food. Last night I was invited by Priya from Deccan Tiffin to her monthly Maharani Supper Club where I was able to do all of the above. It was an evening full of exciting flavours, great combinations and inspiring work created from a love for good food.

Priya is of Indian decent, spending most of her life growing up in Delhi, but also moved around with her family growing up and has lived in many countries all over the world. Her travelling childhood helped grow her love for different cuisines and flavours fueling a passion for cooking with many different ingredients and using recipes handed down through her family generations.

Foodie Eshe REVIEW OF MAHARANI SUPPERCLUB AT CAFE RUST, OCTOBER 17, 2015

Last Saturday I took a journey across India. Not literally, but through food. I went to my second Tabl pop-up, held at Cafe Rust on Preston Road. (I’m fast becoming a big advocate of the pop-up).

The supper club host was a lovely lady called Pyria Deshingkar who was brought up in Delhi, raised by parents from Southern Maharashtra and spent 12 years living in the South Indian city of Hyderabad.

caferustpopup2The Maharani supper club was designed to be a truly authentic experience of North, West and South Indian cuisine; the real street food you’d have if you were eating with the locals!

Places I Eat Brighton REVIEW – DECCAN TIFFIN AT POLYGON POP UP

August 28, 2015 · by Rich Harris · in Indian, Reviews, Seven Dials

If you have passed through the ever-evolving Seven Dials recently, you may have noticed a large white tent attached to what used to be the home of Sam’s, a veritable Brighton institution by all accounts. Pass by this same spot late at night and you’re likely to see twinkly lights and smiling faces, and hear raucous laughter and chatter fuelled by the great selection of craft ales on offer.

Over the summer, Polygon Pop Up has taken up residence here, providing an event space to showcase some of Brighton’s top culinary talent. It’s attracted some of the big players with exciting collaborations such as Guerrilla Grill doing what they do best, and Plateau providing their exceptional cocktails.
