FeedTheTang was born eleven months ago. I shamelessly joined the food blogger world and never looked back. I know I have not been doing a very good job of keeping my blog up to date during the last couple of months, but I was not just sitting around doing nothing! Actually I have been busy planning and testing recipes for my next adventure *drum roll* – FedByTang, my very own Chinese supperclub \o/
If you do not know what a supperclub is, read this.
I remember booking my very first visit to a supperclub at City Caphe via the Edible Experiences website - which I came across by following Wen, the co-founder of Edible Experiences on Twitter. The night was casual and fun. I got to meet other food lovers, and sample dishes that were specially created for the event. Since then I have become a regular on the Edible Experiences website, searching for the latest popup and supperclub events in and around London.
The idea of setting up my own supperclub came after I attended London Foodie’s Japanese home cooking night. He served up traditional Japanese dishes, many of which simply cannot be found in an ordinary Japanese restaurant. That got me thinking, most people are only really familiar with the staples of Chinese food, such as roast meat and dim sum. Possibly more adventurous diners may have tried Sichuan, or other regional cuisine. But what about the type of food that I grew up eating in Hong Kong, such as dai-pai-dong’s (open air restaurant) stir fried dishes or the wonderful seafood that we eat when we are celebrating?
So here we go, FedByTang is going live on 7th July. My menu features fresh and tasty traditional Chinese home cooking, with a few unique creations thrown in along the way. Here is a sample menu:
Chinese soup and nibbles
Soy sauce fried prawns with chilli, ginger and spring onion
Triple cooked mui-choi pork belly
Pan fried sea bream with Chinese chives
Dessert and Chinese tea
Interested? Click here to find out more! I will post updates and information of any upcoming events on the FedByTang Facebook page.
If you are thinking of setting up a supperclub, I suggest you read ‘OK so you wanna set up a supperclub’ by the host of the well-established Singaporean supperclub PluSixFive. More importantly, get in touch with Edible Experiences. There are already more than 800 food and drink experiences listed on the site, including a wide range of activities like cooking classes and guided food walks.
As with my blog, I am not sure where this supperclub will lead me. I just know I am dead excited and cannot wait to feed you all :)
