The Story So Far
Gingerline is a group of clandestine dining adventurers. We’ve been creating nights of mystery and delicious dining along the East London Line since 2010.
Starting out as a ‘for the love’ experiment, Gingerline has cartwheeled and cavorted across London, opening the eyes (and minds) of intrepid explorers through our growing collection of immersive dining experiences.
Our out-of-this-world (but strictly top secret) experiences, which fuse together art, performance, food, drink and design, have been increasingly described as ‘the hottest tickets in town’.
From Crystal Palace to Canonbury, we are constantly seeking out the next level in adventure for London’s boldest and bravest diners and what started life as a single dimensional nomadic food fusions, has morphed into three distinct strands of flavoursome forays:
Classic Gingerline - Our original nomadic theatrical supper club, popping up in various secret locations along the East London Line – which looks distinctly ‘ginger’ on most Tube Maps…
The Chambers of Flavour - Our multi-dimensional dining Machine which catapults brave diners through a tongue-tangling taste adventure, hidden away in a top secret London location, closely guarded by our egghead engineers.
We are a bunch of food and drink enthusiasts whose goal is simply to create the ultimate dining experience.
Susannah (Suz) is the bright, sparky creature responsible for creating Gingerline and The Chambers of Flavour. She’s the co-founder, leader, ideas-spinner and motivator. Suz comes from a long line of maternal home cooks – and she loves to experiment in the kitchen. With no formal background in food, art, theatre or design for that matter, she just does what she loves and feels passionate about: Gingerline!
Kerry puts the Ginger in Gingerline (she has BIG ginger hair). Sometime performer and lead singer, she is also Gingerline’s co-founder, Ideator & Project Manager, scooping up ideas in a net and making them work practically! A skilled communicator, Kerry is fluent in the languages of artist, chef, designer, executive, actor, technician and tradesman, seamlessly slipping through cultural barriers to bring the multifarious elements of Gingerline together.
Davy is the logistical magician of the Gingerline troupe; the Brains to our Thunderbirds. Starting out many years ago during our chaotic ‘pop-up’ days, his knack for cool headed efficiency combined with boundless smarts helped turn this ol’ project from delightful chaos to well oiled machine.
Hannah is our flavourologically-certified head beverage engineer, and can be found infusing, muddling, shaking, stirring, flaming and occasionally centrifuging premium spirits in the eternal search for the ultimate inter-dimensional cocktail. Since joining Gingerline in 2012 Hannah has trained, edified and lead a team of thirst-quenching technicians to create beverages to bewilder, bedazzle and bewitch. As well as concocting potable potions for parallel realities, over recent years Hannah has also worked with the Sweet and Chilli mavericks on some of their exciting, new ventures.
A self-proclaimed stalker of our prior shenanigans, Lucinda is the newest member of the Gingerline team. With several years of experience within the events industry behind her, Lucinda is the mastermind behind taste-centric experiences created by the Institute of Flavourology, our newest venture. With an enthusiasm for edible experimentation, a mind for managing mayhem and just a touch of Ginger, she’s bound to sprinkle a little flavourological magic onto any private or bespoke event that comes her way.
Pledging to assist her fellow intrepid travellers in continuing to discover parallel realities in distant worlds, Megan helps keep Gingerline HQ in order whilst spreading the word of new projects and discoveries far across the social media stratosphere. With spreadsheets, files, lists a ‘galore and a well-organised head on her shoulders, she ensures the team has all the nuts and bolts for the magical creative madness that keeps us aboard the Gingerline Explorer!
Lauren (Foss) Partridge
Having riddled and rhymed, mimicked and mimed her way as part of the eccentric cast of characters and creatures in Chambers of Flavour, Lauren was seduced by the secret mechanics of the Gingerline machine. She can now be found heading up a troupe of flavourological thespians; casting, writing and rehearsing this band of merry performers in order that they are fully equipped to feed the imaginations of our most inquisitive travellers.
In another time, our Head of Flavourology, could have had a very different title. After studying Archaeology at university, Asher swapped the past for his pastime, turning his Flavourological passion to profession through experience in Jamie Oliver’s ‘Fifteen’, Michelin starred ‘Il San Pietro’ and ‘Event Oracle’. After 12 years of baking, butchering, stirring, shaking, managing and making, Asher is now Gingerline’s gastronomical wizard, forging fantastical fares and overseeing a team of taste-makers charged with creating enchanting edible experiences for our secret world.
Andy is Gingerline’s lead in HR and finance, responsible for managing people interactions and crunching those numbers whilst our diners crunch on culinary delights. Hailing from the U. S. of A and with a background in the theatre, digital media, and non-profit industries, he’s sure to infuse a fresh new perspective to our inner workings. Think you have the right ingredients to join the Gingerline mix? Andy is your go-to-guy!
