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.

The Book Launch

Uyen Arms Up Book Launch

It took 6 months to write, photograph, test recipes and edit the book. Six weeks to organise the book launch and it came a went like a click. My friends, peers and loved ones came to celebrate one of the most important nights of my life. My first book was finally out and it made me feel nervous, proud, anxious, happy, terrified, excited.

I had so many wonderful and heartfelt messages. Some made me feel incredibly happy and lucky to be thought of by my heroes. I could blush for years!

Naked Wines

The book launch was held at Hurwundeki, its a Korean cafe with a hairdressers. It also has a beachy shop front with tables, sands and rocking horses! If I were you, I would get myself down there for 2 courses for only £10, BYO and get your hair cut too!

Thank you to Naked Wines for sponsoring the event with prosecco, white and red. We all loved it and it surely did top the night off with tons of smiles.

Thank you to Donald Russell for the generous gift of ingredients of beef, chicken and pork that were in the summer rolls and banh mi.

Thank you to Ryland Peters & Small for supporting the night and Hurwundeki for the most quirky, fun and off the wall venue.

Thank you to everyone who passed by to buy the book and for being there to celebrate a night I could never possibly forget. I had the most amazing time. I hope that everyone will enjoy the book as much as I loved making it.
