About Me


Jack Greenall was just a guy with a really expensive hobby until he accidentally became a pro chef after an old friend called him up to ask if he wanted to help run a pop up restaurant. Jack didn’t find out til six months later that he’d been supposed to talk him out of it.

With that experience under his belt and a stint at foodie mecca Borough Market, Jack formed Smoke and Thyme as both a blog and a supper club, where he was delighted and as surprised as anyone to quickly find himself with a growing kindle of supporters returning week after week to give feedback on his latest creations.

Jack has used his supper club to develop and perfect new dishes to add to his now substantial repertoire. In 2018, Smoke and Thyme launched a three month Autumn Pop Up Restaurant at 205 Divinity Road featuring the best dishes of the formerly nomadic supper club.

    Hi Jack, sounds like we have similar attitudes to cooking/blogging as I also like to understand why I’m doing something. We also seem to use the same reference books (McGee, Modernist Cuisine). It’s a bit difficult to discover your blog as you don’t seem to have any index? Perhaps I’m missing something. Anyway, good luck with your blog!

      Hi Stefan. I’ve got to admit, I’m pretty new to blogging, so I didn’t know what an index is or that I needed one – so I’ll be trying to sort that out in the next day or two. Thanks for the heads up, and I’ll be checking your blog out too.

      I’m currently working my way through McGee and Modernist Cuisine. I’m also reading Terre a Terre for modern, technique heavy, innovative vegetarian dishes and The French Laundry for beautiful, slightly more conventional cuisine.

        You can easily include an automatically generated index based on categories (if you assign those) or the date of publication. In the dashboard of your blog, go to Appearance, Widgets, and then select the “Archives” and/or “Categories” widgets. You may also like the “Tag Cloud”. You can see examples of them on the right bar on my blog if you like.

        Look forward to hear what you think of my blog. I’ll have to check out Terre a Terre because I’d like to get better at vegetable dishes (if not necessarily at vegetarian dishes).

    I’ve just booked my first visit to Jack’s supper club, cant wait to see his creations. Love food, cooking, baking and sad that many kids don’t have a clue these days about making a simple nutritious meal. Bring back fun home economics classes to age 16!
