Family style gap khao supper club
Thai cuisine lends itself to family style meals, so expect a table laden with plates of contrasting food. This is grounded in the idea of balance, not just in terms of the flavour of a solo dish, but with regards to the entire meal. Anticipate an array of plates featuring multiple textures, flavours, levels of spice, temperatures, and styles of cooking. You can expect a combination of cooked and raw foods, salads, fried foods, soups and/or curries. There will be a minimum of 5 dishes served, in addition to rice and dessert, and they may come from any region in Thailand.
This supper club of maximum 8 people takes place a 6 minute walk from Beckton Park DLR station, in my home. You will be sent the full address before the event.
These dishes are just examples of what you might be served but may not feature on the night.
Frequently asked questions
I want to share less common ingredients with guests if they are available, but I don’t want to write a menu for which I cannot source ingredients closer to the event. Planning a fixed menu means choosing from limited ingredients I know I’ll be able to locate. When I go shopping the week of the supper club I look for less common produce so I can build dishes around them. In this way the menu is always fresh and interesting.
I know it can feel daunting to purchase a ticket to a dinner with an unknown menu, but this is my most popular format and I have many repeat guests.
I hit the Thai markets the week of the event to see what fresh ingredients are available. From there I plan the menu to ensure the dishes served maintain a sensory balance between taste, texture, and seasoning.
I provide a few example menus at the bottom of this page.
While there may be a dish or two you find familiar, I try to ensure repeat guests always have a variety of new dishes to try. I like to keep things fresh.
