MATR: Food or meal in old Norse. (Pronounce it as u wish, anglo version: Matter) 
www.matrfood.com

Matr is first and foremost an intimate Nordic dining club experience created by Danish chef Jonas Lorentzen. 

Jonas grew up on the Danish Island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea, which has fostered many creative entrepreneurs in the danish food scene and is known for its many culinary delights. Jonas has worked in high end establishments in India, Denmark and the U.K, but has now dedicated himself 100% to the Nordic Food Movement at his Supper Club MATR(old norse for food) drawing inspiration from the likes of Rene Redzepi(Noma) Rasmus Kofoed(geranium) to name a few.

Apart from being a seriously talented chef Jonas is also a master storyteller, each dish has a narrative delivered with the same precision and creativity as goes into the making of the dish itself. The experience is rustic, warmhearted and embracing whilst exploring all your senses to satisfy the expectations of a modern fine dining experience. 

You will be enjoying a 7 course meal with 7 wines carefully curated to complement each dish. The produce is 100% seasonal and local and the wines are all natural from small batch producers.

Jonas is a avid forager, so don’t be alarmed if you find herbs and plants you’ve never heard of in the dishes created by Jonas Lorentzen

We open our doors to our community in the spirit of the Viking ways of old. We say "Skål!" and welcome you to Matr.

Please note that our dinners are always personalised to your needs, so let us know if you have any dietary requirements/allergies at the time of booking.

MATR Nordic Dining Experience - Supper Club Review

There are not many things in this life of which I am certain, but I can tell you one: I was meant to be Scandinavian. I may be neither tall nor blonde but I have an unrivalled collection of woolly jumpers and a penchant for fish that no daily slab...

Really interesting food and great wine pairing! Visited Ginger and White on 2018-04-21

Brilliant food experience. The whole night was kept in a relaxed athmosphere, where strangers bonded over each exceptional dish. Jonas was a superb grounded chef that kept his diners awaiting the next dish in excitement. His chef skills elevated simple ingredients into new formations and paired it beautifully with wines that complimented the food cleverly. This event is defenitaly not the last one we will attend with Jonas, as it’s highly recommended if you want to try a well executed new Nordic experience.

Loads of fun. Good food and wine. Interesting flavours combined with good techniques and produce made each dish worthy of notice. The composition of the menu was somewhat hit-and-miss but the flavours and Jonas’s dedication to the New Nordic more than made up for that. Visited Ginger and White on 2018-03-10

6 of us attended the Nordic Dining Experience last night, having never been to a supper club or used Designmynight before. Our group included at least 4 (possibly 6) massive food and wine snobs, and some who were grumpy and tired from previous nights out and/or parenting commitments. We all had an absolutely excellent evening. The food was outstanding- delicious, interesting and surprising without being weird or pretentious and the wine pairing was brilliantly done. The venue is relaxed, the food commentary amusing and interesting, the service was lovely and the atmosphere was very special. We will be going again to try a different seasonal menu. A really memorable night out. Visited Ginger and White on 2018-03-10

Jonas is not only an exceptional chef in the kitchen, but also a wonderful host around the table too. The range and quality of dishes presented over the course of 3 hours supping superbly paired organic wines was a real treat to sample. Every morsel was savoured and every bowl cleaned. Very much recommended

A friend and I booked this back in July. It was cancelled/rescheduled four times (by the host, not us), and then when we finally asked for a refund in October it took three months (until now) and we had to get Design My Night to intervene to make sure we got our money back.

The Brunette and I had a truly memorable evening, courtesy of the hugely talented chef Jonas Lorentzen and his lovely, engaging wife, Naina. The venue, a cosy little café in Hampstead, leant itself to the intimate dinner party ambience, a celebration of the Nordic food movement. Carefully chosen natural wines accompanied each beautifully crafted and artfully presented course and Jonas was happy to accommodate the vegetarians and pescatarians. I could barely restrain myself from picking up each little plate and licking it. What this man can do with a pointed cabbage (emphasis on the second syllable) is truly remarkable. We chatted, told stories and argued about philosophy until late and poured ourselves into a taxi after farewell hugs. It’s impossible not to love this hugely talented couple. Jonas, even if the band flourishes, please keep cooking! Visited Ginger and White on 2017-12-22

We had a lovely evening and the food was simply divine. Mate is truly gifted and so friendly and made us all feel very comfortable. I highly recommend his dinners and will be coming back for sure. Visited Ginger and White on 2017-07-15

Food was superb. The courses were spread out over quite a long time but it gave you time to digest and the evening didn't feel too dragged out. I do think £90 to include the wine tastings is pretty punchy - I understand the benefit of having wine paired with food, but being able to bring a nice bottle with you would be good and I think it would add to the relaxed atmosphere of the event. Jonas was a brilliant host and it was great to hear him link the food and courses to the culture he is clearly so passionate about. Visited Ginger and White on 2017-07-15

One of the best dining experiences I have ever had. If you are considering it, just do it! Told all my friends and they love it too Visited Ginger and White on 2017-05-26

There were so many different experiences in one sitting it was impossible not to be engrossed in every dish. My personal favourite was the venison, but every vegetable dish had so much character and Jonas really encouraged every ingredient. The wine selection was carefully picked in order to compliment all the textures and flavours and I will definitely be returning again. Visited Ginger and White on 2017-05-27

I was a little apprehensive about the idea of dining with complete strangers at first but what an amazing evening it turned out to be. The undoubted star of the evening was the food. Every course was a sumptuous surprise and each paired with the perfect wine. It adds something special to an evening when the chef explains each and every dish, what it is and how its prepared. My apprehension proved to be completely unfounded as by the end of the evening, everyone was engaged in conversation with one another, Jonas and Naina and their Mum :) It was an unforgettable dining experience!

This was an incredible dining experience. Each course was interesting, perfectly cooked with an explosion of flavours, and paired with great wines. Jonas is brilliant at explaining how each dish is thought and made. Our hosts were very welcoming as well, and all in all, this was a perfect dinner.

Amazing. Every course was perfect. Excellent wines alongside. The hosts very welcoming. "scorched earth" is one of the best dishes I've ever had and the venison was cooked to perfection. Visited Ginger and White on 2017-05-04

Jonas is a terrific chef. Each course was totally delicious and looked beautiful too. He does wondrous things with simple vegetables. Who would have thought that a dish based on a single banana shallot would have been the star of the night! Wines perfectly complemented each mouthful. I'd thoroughly recommend.

A surprising food adventure. Chef Jonas is the rockstar of vegetables and such. The entire experience lasted about 4 hours of what seemed like meticulous planning, that created the 'hygge' atmosphere that everyone is raving about! Can be likened to Noma and the new Nordic movement. There was attention in every detail. The natural wines, the crazy dishes, even the music and crockery. Best service, a real taste into the modern Viking culture. Phenomenal execution. A must try! This customer is here to stay.

Such beautiful food! Creative, original and extremely tasty! Surrounded by good people, interesting conversation and candlelight, I couldn't have had a lovelier time. I will definitely be back, and I highly recommend this experience.

Didn't know what to expect from an intimate dinner gathering like this, but the company was pleasant, the wine was great and thoughtfully paired, and the food was tremendously varied and delicious--and often surprising. If you'd told me I'd be raving about a cabbage wedge, monkfish-and-pumpkin flavor combination, or "edible dirt" at the end of the night, I'd have thought you'd had too many of the wine pairings in advance. In this case, though, definitely trust the chef. Highly recommended.
