No two events are the alike and diners can look forward to a swashbuckling affair of epic proportions that takes no prisoners and leaves a delicious trail of culinary wonder in its wake.


Our Johnny is quite the conceptual fellow and doesn’t let a single opportunity to stretch his creative muscles slip through his fingers. He draws inspiration from the strangest of places – think fairy tales, nature, music videos, his grandmother’s kitchen, far-flung exotic locations and even the Bible.


Each Slippery Spoon menu is completely unique and inspired by the theme of the night. Get ready to be amazed as Johnny challenges the norm to bring you a variety of taste sensations. Beverages will be on sale at a cash bar or via Snapscan.


Much thought and research goes into choosing each unique Slippery Spoon event/dinner destination. Depending on the theme of the night, you may end up dining on a rooftop, in a field, at the bottom of a quarry or the banks of a river.

A true underground dining experience

A five course meal in true Avant Garde Slippery Spoon style to celebrate Johnny’s new secret kitchen space.

On July 12 the Not Ham But Man Headquarters hosted its very first Tafel conceptual dinner. 25 lucky guests were fortunate enough to get their hands on the limited tickets that were made available for this prestigious dinner hosted by Johnny Hamman.

The dinner included a four course meal with canapés and sparkling wine on arrival. The main course consisted of slow braised pork belly, a cauliflower & white chocolate puree, cauliflower florets, pomme puree, a popcorn & pork crackling crumble and cider chutney.  Dinner was served on the Not Ham But Man ceramic range which will be available shortly from our online shop.
