Thomasina Miers – MasterChef winner, Guardian Feast columnist and founder of the Wahaca Mexican restaurant chain – is hosting a ‘Day of the Dead’ inspired supper club at Manchester’s branch of Wahaca in the Corn Exchange on Friday 2 November. Tickets are £40 per person for what’s basically a massive feast (and welcome drink) hosted and cooked by Thomasina herself. The family-style supper includes new dishes created for the occasion such as passion fruit cured trout ceviche, slow-cooked seasonal game picadillo and chargrilled Crown Prince squash served with cashew nut mole. Enjoy a welcome drink (marigold margarita or Corona) and sample small batch tequila and mezcal. Dressing in the spirit is optional  –  we’ll be getting our skeleton on, of course  – and there will be live music and themed decorations to enjoy. There is only one other Dia de los Muertos celebration supper club at Wahaca this year (in London)  and it’s already sold out. Given the popularity of this event – and the fact that Thomasina will be onsite, cooking and hosting this special supper club – we recommend booking now if you want to attend. Wahaca are also running a special ‘Day of the Dead’ inspired menu for the period running up to the famous Mexican celebration (Mon 29 Oct – Sun 4 Nov)  – click here to find out more and book a table.

Fri 2 Nov, Wahaca, The Corn Exchange, Exchange Square, Manchester M4 3TR. Tel: 0161 413 7493, 7pm, £50 per person,

A Manchester Wire partnership post.
