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.

Short Film: My Aunt Ut Makes Bánh Cuốn

My mother’s sister, has been making bánh cuốn for years. Every morning, her husband wakes up at 3am to start a fire in their little clay oven. On the pot of water, sits a canvas frame with a slit on one side (to let steam out). The rice flour mixture is ladled onto it and cooks with the lid on for about a minute and my aunt folds them up into rolls. She makes and sells this every morning from 5am at the market.

These can be eaten plain with fried shallots and fish sauce, or with spring onions, minced meat and/ prawn fillings. You can add whatever you like them. Sometimes I eat them with fried aubergines and a sweet and chilli soy sauce or with lots of cured ham and basil. They are silky and delicious, one of my favourite things in the world.

I have written a recipe for it which will be published in my forth coming book.
