Supper clubs are as trendy and topical as anything in London at the moment, and for the next couple of months, they're not only a fun way to meet people and have a great meal, but also a great opportunity to help a very worthy cause.
Until October, a number of notable supper club hosts are teaming up with Action Against Hunger to help fight the injustice of child hunger around the world.
Action Against Hunger is a global humanitarian organization committed to ending world hunger, working to save the lives of malnourished children while providing communities with access to safe water and sustainable solutions to hunger.
Through The Supperheroes Series, these hosts who turn their homes into pop up restaurants are not only creating fantastic feasts for their paying guests, but then turning around and donating their profits to Action Against Hunger.
All the Supperhero events are organised in association with foodie activities website Edible Experiences and each and every Supperhero has their own range of “secret weapon” dishes from the four corners of the globe, ranging from Singaporean laksa noodles, to Mauritian curry and Italian meatballs.
Stamping out hunger was never so sociable or had such delectable results! Here's a list of these tasty charitable suppers:
- On Saturday August 25th, Cherry Smart AKA “Fed by Tang” will create a menu showcasing the delicacies of Cantonese cooking. With a minimum donation of £30, be sure to BYO booze and enjoy an evening featuring everything from stir fried clams with garlic to a wonderfully spicy skate wing with Sichuan pepper, to triple cooked mui-choi pork belly and stir-fried king prawns and Chinese chives. Dessert and traditional Chinese tea are also included.
- For those seeking a taste of the Med, look no further than Roberto & Fabio AKA “The Backdoor Kitchen,” who will take diners on a gastronomic tour around Italy on Sunday the 16th of September. For a minimum donation of £30, this dynamic duo will take their inspiration from authentic Roman, Calabrian and Sicilian cuisine, serving up classic dishes ranging from chargrilled polenta with in San Daniele ham wrapped prawns to baby squid stuffed with mushroom and smoked salmon, Cacciatora style chicken. There is also a not-to-be-missed secret dessert.
- On Saturday October 27th, Sumayya Jamil AKA ‘PukkaPaki’ will team up with Sheba AKA Absolute Indian for a tantalizing feast from the Indian sub-continent, as traditional classics are given her own unique twist for a minimum donation of £45. Served in the customary floor-seated style, highlights include a mix of dishes ranging from aubergine and pomegranate pakora fritters to Sindhi-style grilled lamp chops with rose petal garam masala as well Mughal-style almond cream and 'kola' 'Shahi Tukra' bread pudding topped with pistachios, saffron and silver leaf.
