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.

It is traditional to wear red on New Year’s to bring luck and to eat to your heart’s content in celebration with good friends and family to bring good fortune and prosperity.

You must pay off all your debts and spring clean your home to close chapters of your past and welcome new experiences and good luck. Out with the old and in with the new.

Your New Year’s Day must be filled with fun and happiness. Whatever you do in this day is believed to reflect your entire year – so don’t argue or be sad.

Stepping in dog poo by accident is somehow supposed to be lucky? Don’t know why but Simon managed to tread a whole load of oil in from the street and left foot prints all over my carpet on the stairs- will that make us wealthy? Hope so.. : )

Welcoming dogs into your home is also believed to be really lucky.

We had a great time on these supper club nights. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and loved the food. We hope that they will all be very lucky in the year of the Tiger. They will not be hungry – thats for sure.

Happy New Year.

  • There’s now a little bit of drool running down my chin – the food looks amazing *radiating envy*.

    One day I’ll book in time… 😉

  • Beautiful photos, guys. Takes me back to that night! So fun. x

  • Happy New Year! Looks like a very auspicious evening! Love the photo of the won ton wrappers.

  • We had such a lovely time. Amazing food, fascinating company and a lovely atmosphere. We’ll be back, with many friends. Happy New Year! xx
