Out Going Chilli Night at Outsider Tart

Chilli Night at Outsider Tart

AUTHOR The Milk Maid
Every thursday evening, David and David, the duo behind the American bakeshop in Chiswick, clear the counters of sweet US treats and present giant pots of steaming chilli.

With 12 place settings, 12 bowls and 12 chairs, the evening is guaranteed to be cosy, friendly and familiar as guests feast family style around their communal table.

On the evening I visited I sat with a couple of the local regulars, a few other journalists and bloggers, a couple of PR's and the Davids themselves - sweet bread was broken, beer flowed freely, the chilli gradually diminished and both souls and stomachs were fed on this all American comfort food as new friends were made.

A tip to anyone going along... don't forget to leave room for pudding! David and David are the most gracious and welcoming hosts, their table quickly feels like home as they actively encourage guests to relax, enjoy and help themselves to seconds, thirds and even fourths. After so much chilli there was little room for even the smallest slice of a delicious red velvet cheesecake so I took a giant wedge home, along with a huge jar of Reece's peanut butter that had been winking at me all evening.

David and David's authentic American soul food can now be sampled more regularly, as their restaurant, Blue Plate, has just opened.

To celebrate Thanks Giving, the American Davids are also hosting two traditional American Thanks Giving dinners, visit the website for more information
