Last weekend Emily and I headed over to Stourbridge to attend one of the newest supper clubs on the block - run by Thai cookery super star Carole the lady behind Brum's no ping no bling.
- 9 guests
- 1 table
- Set menu
- Bring your own booze
- Party ends when the last guest leaves
We weren't really sure what to expect and turned up with a mx of anticipation and nerves. Fortunately we weren't the frist ones there but we needed have worried - soon enough we were chatting away with the other 7 guests. We were an eclectic mix of foodies - from a kitchen designer to streetfood market organiser to local wine tasting expert - and as a result we had plenty to talk about from the off and a fabulous time all round.
To the food...
What can I say? The best Thai food I've ever eaten - every dish was mind blowing and the food just kept on coming. We didn't know what we'd be eating before we arrived but we'd let Carole know of any allergies etc.. Supperclubs are definitely not for fussy eaters.
Here's what we ate be warned, the list is long and will make your mouth water!
Chiang Mai Sausage - Si Uah - A spicy sausage showcasing all the tastes of Thailand in one bite including lemongrass, lime leaves and galangal.
Prawn Pandanus - Hand chopped delicately flavoured prawn and pork wrapped in pandanus leaf parcels and steamed. Served with a hot and sweet chilli dip.
Northern Larb - A classic dish, served at room temperature with lots of supporting raw veg is made using a handmade dry curry paste with lots of dried spices some of which can only be sourced in Thailand.
Steamed Thai Jasmine Rice
Sticky Rice and Mango - made with fresh coconut milk
