Since my move here last September, I have been dreaming of running a supper club and last Thursday Alex and I finally opened the front door to 14 guests for the first one. Decorating had held us up, but the living room is the ideal location for pop-up dining; we were happy to see it brought to life and busy on the night. I hope you like the pictures, it was pouring down outside which gave the night a great atmosphere and we had laid the tables with flowers cut from the garden.
I served a surprising Tofu dip as an appetiser, surprising because it is often mistaken for Houmous but is actually a more nutritious Japanese variation. This was followed by different types of hand-rolled sushi including Temari sushi and Bo Sushi. For the main course, I cooked Salmon and Mackerel in a Namban sauce topped with a relish, with Green beans plus black sesame seed sauce as a side . For dessert; Tokyo Mess, my own variation of the English classic Eton Mess with ingredients including Azuki bean paste and cream infused with Macha green tea.
