Malaysian Supper Club in Putney

If you love food (I'm guessing that's why you are here) and you haven't been to a supperclub, you need to get yourself a seat pronto. There are so many new and exciting nights out there. I have been with friends and I have toddled off on my own, it's a great way to meet new people with similar interests and an even better way of tasting authentic food you may not find in restaurants. 

I first tasted May's cooking at her Malaysian Supper club hosted by Luiz @thelondonfoodie in his beautiful Islington home. I was really blown away with the effort, presentation, taste and generosity of the evening. My friend and I left groaning with our bellies full of the most delicious home style cooked Malaysian feast. A few months later, May emailed me saying that she was cooking again, but this time closer to home in Clapham, so off I went and it tasted every bit as good as I had remembered. We got chatting after supper and decided that Putney needed a dose of May's Beef Rendang!

What with hosting my first Supperclub over two nights, there wasn't a lot of time for pictures as May and I had to move furniture, shop and cook but here are some Iphone pics to tempt you into booking our next one. I missed a pic of one dish (the clams)
