One of many supper clubs left to attend on my long list! Mind you I have attended quite a few over the years, but I finally I managed to visit Ms Marmite Lover, who launched the supper club/underground restaurant movement in the UK in 2009 with her supper club The Underground Restaurant.
The evening I attended It was a was all about South African Flavorking plums! All recipes and drinks had Flavorking plums as ingredients. You probably think I have misspelt the name of the glorious stone fruit - Not I haven't! Thanks! what's the name Flavorking - full of flavour or flavor - the spelling depends where you come from.
Flavorking plums are a majestic presence in a fruit bowl thanks to their size, colour and sweetness. These plums are quite large and have a deep crimson blush flash. They are very juicy and full of flavour as the name suggests. This fruit has a punch taste that’s reminiscent of bubblegum. Their season is quite short so run to the supermarket now and try this delicious fruit. Available at M&S for a limited time.

|Mushroom and tofu gyoza with plum sauce and purple sweet potato and blood orange|
Once seated we started the event with Mushroom and tofu gyoza with plum sauce and purple sweet potato and blood orange - I love gyozas, and I was quite impressed by the homemade parcels - so beautifully done! I am not good at making Gyoza but I have an exceptional talent to eat them!
This is going to sound a bit unusual but OMG that has good! Sea bass en papillote on a bed of plum noodles with umeboshi plums and bergamot zest with plum salsa - the sea bass was delicate, and the salsa was extraordinary! It was fruity, sweet, lemony, aromatic with a slight kick of chilli on the finish, recipe here!
|plum fruit leather|
Goulds cheddar cheese board with plum fruit leather and plum pickled burdock root - the fruit leather was a brilliant idea. Great fun and quite delicious.
Plum clafoutis - comfort food on a cold evening - a winner!
It was a nice evening with lots of laughter, it was good to meet new folks and catch up with old friends!
