  1. ‘MasterChef’ Friday Food Club

    April 11, 2011 by Dini

    Friday Food Club Meza Pop-Up

     

    Wednesday 6th April 2011

    Not a Friday, not in Lee (Creator in the Kitchen) & Fi (FOH)’s usual BlackHeath residence and not a humble supperclub menu like any other…

    Instead, I joined quite a few others in booking in for a special pop-up in Meza hosted by the Friday Food Club, pulling in a few of their friends… Anna Hansen (of The Moden Pantry) and these two:

    'Chefs' - Dhruv Baker & Lisa Faulkner

    Soho Breeze

    *****

    Friday Food Club Amuse Bouche

    (Possibly the best amuse bouche I’ve ever tasted, with sweet green peas and chorizo, a vividly decorated and tasty delight)

    *****

    British Asparagus with Tarragon Butter, Deep Fried Burford Brown Egg & Parmesan Shavings

    served with

    Christophe et Fils Chablis 2009 (from Naked Wines)

    (Firstly, apologies for my photos, I haven’t done the Burford Brown egg justice. The ‘money shot’ indeed was on the slice when the yolk seeped)

    *****

    Pan Fried Sea Bream, Crispy Squid & Compound Butter

    *****

    Belly of Pork, Spiced Stuffing, Butternut Squash Puree, Pomme Anna, Apple Jelly & Coriander Jus

    served with

    Fairhills Vineyard Fairtrade Mendoza Malbec 2009 (from Origin Wine)

    (The spiced stuffing balls were divine as was the crackling, which I snuck extra’s of from the platter)

    *****

    Bison Grass Vodka & Mint Panna Cotta, Roasted Cardomom & Honey Figs on Shortbread

    served with

    Benjamin Dernault Montahuc 2007 (from Naked Wines)

    (The combo of Zubrowka bison grass vodka with creamy panna cotta wasn’t for me, however it did have a stunning wibbly wobble)

    *****

    Mint Tea

    *****

    I loved the fact that all diners, were given a Friday Food Club muffin at the end of the night. For those who could eat another morsel either there or in the cab home (which I couldn’t) or in my case, devoured for breakfast the next morning. It’s cute touches such as this that made me appreciate the night and value the efforts of our┬áHost and Organiser – Lee (not forgetting wonderful Fi, not pictured!)
