A short heartfelt shout-out for a special supperclub

Hello, this is going to be a quickie. I'm teaming up with Goz from the crazy brilliant plusixfive supperclub on the 18 July, to bring the best of Singaporean cuisine, but with a British seasonal twist, using the best of our local summer produce!

It's not the first time I've cooked with Goz, but this is going to be one very special supper to me, because it really represents what I'm all about, what this blog and the food on this blog is all about. This is food food grown by the people here with love, and then prepared with love and greedy hands. A lot of the produce that we're using will be bought this weekend from Pimlico farmer's market (which I very happily manage), but cooked up and made a lot more exciting using the familiar spices and flavours from home.

The menu will look something like this:
Braised Soy Pork Belly, with Fennel, served on English Lettuce Cups
Grilled Aubergines with my Infamous Sambal 
Sambal Beet Leaves
Turmeric Fried Mackerel
Mum's "Old-fire" Watercress Soup
Hainanese Pork Chop with English Heritage Tomatoes
plus more, we're still thrashing it out.

This is subject to changes, as it's going to be very much inspired by what I find at the farmer's market. GET YER TICKETS NOW. We only launched it yesterday, but there's only 7 places left as I type this, and I really would love to feed you hungry Mummy, I can cook readers.

UPDATE: Sorry, tickets sold out now.

  1. OOOOh! So exciting. I might have to spend a little while browsing your recipes for ideas. We're planning to have a new kitchen/National Day party for our Scottish friends in August! So far I have plans for slow braised spiced pig cheeks shredded into whatever soft white buns the chinese supermarket can offer me (not particularly Singaporean, but sound good no?!). I think the addition of some grilled aubergines and a wee touch of chilli sauce would make these the most awesome alternatives to burgers... I'm also dreaming of coconut and lime granita, mango frozen yoghurt, kopi from bags, tiger beers, breaking open the bags of good morning towels instead of napkins - I can't wait!!!
