Come Dine With Yumzee
Camera-free Channel 4-ery
If you're up for every aspect of Come Dine With Me except the obligatory character assassination delivered in the form of a jaunty northern voiceover, Yumzee is probably your jam. A new kind of supper club, you can host a meal, or attend one. We went for the latter and — forward thinking though we are — weren't sure we were quite Shoreditch enough for an evening of raw vegan food. That our host for the evening turned out to be an established private chef certainly avoided the need for a midnight drive through on our way home, as well as making for three beautiful plates of food. Kamila Szewczyk specialises in artisan raw cakes (pictured), but the beetroot soup with which she kicked off proceedings makes us confident her talents extend to all areas of the kitchen. Extending to all areas of the globe are the forthcoming Yumzee meals which you can sign up to, starting at £15. Though you can of course go with a chum, we went stag and couldn't have asked for a better table of food appreciators. De-light-ful.
