Supper Club

Supper Club

The supper club is held in my home in London Fields, Hackney. It is like a dinner party in the tradition of a Vietnamese feast with homemade Vietnamese food.

Vietnamese food is about the balance of flavours, of sweet, salty and sour – there is no measuring device that can ever match your own taste buds.

Bottle Apostle – Supper Club

potato crème brûlée

Bottle Apostle had an extra seat at their supper club table in the basement of their beautiful wine shop in Victoria Park so asked me to come along for a 6 course, wine matching meal created by Sven Wassmer, a handsome Swiss man and sous chef at Viajante.

It was a the first time I had ever been to a supper club on my own and was rather nervous but thought, what the hell, I am going to really enjoy the food as I usually do at Viajante/ The Corner Room At The Town Hall Hotel. This is what is great about living in London – there are always different things to do and with regards to food, there are supper clubs and pop up events everywhere to enjoy some decent food by some remarkable people.

Swen Wassmer

The food was really spectacular, I loved how the menu was written in its most basic way (new trend apparently), for example, with “potato crème brûlée”, one would expect so little yet got so much taste in the mouth! All the corners of my tongue were twisting and turning in a jive! It was my favourite dish, beautifully presented with flowers and shoots and tasted more than I could have possibly imagined. This was the same for all the dishes and I loved every single one.

cod, cucumber, yoghurt
scallops, tomato, pine
beef, lemon, leek hearts
chocolate & fennel

Each course was matched with wine by Bottle Apostle who gave a full on description/ short education of how, why, when, where… very interesting and beautiful. I ended up buying the pinot noir, £30 – worth every penny!

Bottle Apostle usually hold supper clubs in their basement. You can check them out on http://www.bottleapostle.com Look out for Sven Wassmer – this food was stunning! & other collaborations they may have. Highly Recommended!

Thanks to Sophie Denning I was a guest, kindly invited by Bottle Apostle and therefore did not pay for this meal which would have cost £70.

For more of an in-depth account of the food and the wine please visit a blog called REAL SIMPLE FOOD whom I shared the lovely evening with.
