About

Two Jersey girls – Anna Hafsteinsson and Emma Long – invite you to dinner every six weeks or so. Home cooked, local food and fun times!

It’s easy to hang out with the same people all the time. With these dinners we want to meet new islanders and share stories around the table. We also want to celebrate Jersey’s gorgeous fresh produce so, where possible, food served at The Bean Pot table will come from the island.

At each dinner we’ll strive to serve up a tasty three-course meal, focusing on seasonal ingredients and flavours that pack a punch. Please remember, though, that we aren’t restaurant-trained chefs so don’t expect gourmet fare … just think of it like being invited to a friend’s house for dinner!

Tickets are £15 each and each month we’ll be teaming up with a Jersey charity so anything we make above our basic costs will go directly to them. Whilst we want to raise a little money for a god cause, the real aim is to get folks together and meet new people.

Guests are strongly encouraged to bring a bottle (or two) to share with their new friends!

Tickets will usually launch a couple of weeks before each event and will be announced on our twitter and facebook. So keep your eyes peeled!

nb. Anna is indebted to her good friend Violaine who founded ‘The Clapton Pot’, a Hackney ‘supper club’ a couple of years back and, following attendance at one of the dinners, convinced Anna to join her as co-host. She didn’t need much persuading. Violaine and Anna had a whole lot of fun cooking up a storm in the kitchen, singing a lot of Simon & Garfunkel and welcoming an impressive assortment of East Londoners to their dining tables.

Moving back to the island, Anna wanted to bring a piece of ‘The Clapton Pot’ over to Jersey. Cue the launch of The Bean Pot …

    1. Hi Nikki,

      We don’t actually have a mailing list at the moment! But if you like us on facebook: facebook.com/thebeanpotjersey or follow us on twitter @beanpotjersey we announce all our dinners there. Our next dinner is this Saturday – there’s just one ticket left if you’d like it: thebeanpotjersey.eventbrite.co.uk. Dinners are held at my house in St Saviours – the address is listed on the link to get tickets.

      Hope to see you at a dinner soon! Anna x
