First event in Kent

Grub Club Events Kent



We are very excited about taking our award-winning networking events to the food businesses of Kent.

For our first event, we are off to Macknade’s in Faversham to enjoy delicious food and drink. It’s a wonderful venue in which to see excellent retail in practise.

The evening will be a showcase of all things food and drink from the local area. We will be enjoying:


Macknade Antipasti : Continental Charcuterie, Mixed Olives, Marinated Artichokes & Stuffed Vine Leaves

Main Course

Slowed Cooked Beef Brisket, Red Wine Jus, Peperonata & Purple Sprouting Broccoli

Beetroot Risotto (v) Crumbled Goat’s Cheese


Chocolate Torte, Orange Marmalade & Marscapone Cream


Our wonderful guest speaker for the evening will be Angus Kennedy, the world’s leading expert on chocolate, dubbed by the media as the ‘real life Willy Wonka.’

Angus is the owner of Kennedy’s Confection, a chocolate review magazine his family has owned for forty years, and the founder of the World Chocolate Forum, the world’s largest chocolate industry conference. He’s been a guest on a variety of TV and radio programs, including Fox, NBC, BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Hallmark, and Bloomberg TV, and featured in a wealth of print and digital media.

Tasting at least 200 products every months, Angus has what many would deem the best job in the world. But now Angus is about to realise his long-held dream of running his own cocoa farm, following the gifting of 50 acres of rainforest in Ecuador, by the Ecuador government.

We hope you can join us on the evening to enjoy an incredible meal, meet lots of new connections and hear all about Angus Kennedy’s amazing business adventures.
