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.

In The Kitchen, Preparing Offal For Bánh Mì –

Butcher's House7

The women of Vietnam seem  to run the whole country. They start from the kitchen and work their way out by any means to feed the family and to keep it together. Apart from what you already do for a living, you will do something extra to earn money. No part of the day goes un-wasted. Má (Mother) Lien lives next door to my cousins in Phan Thiet. They have a shop selling alters and buddhas but in the evenings, they also sell offal for their famous bánh mì. But you wouldn’t have to have it in a baguette, you can buy a bag and have it with rice or in a noodle soup or simply just to snack on with some beers.

The pigs trotters, intestine, liver, hearts, kidneys etc are poached and flavoured throughout the afternoon in a big stock pot with a list of secret Chinese spices and medicine.
