This supper club series is a mouth-watering collaboration between Varun Lives Food and Stir Fry on the Side (Angie Hu)! We bring you creative new dishes with playful twists that pay homage to the flavours we grew up with.
Our menu will be a surprise – but expect delicate vegetables, aromatic scallion oils, tangy Mor Kozambhu, spicy sauces, and lovingly homemade masalas.
Angie’s flavours are rooted in seasonal Shanghainese cooking, a little-known cuisine outside of China that emphasises freshness and delicate balanced flavours. However, growing up in Melbourne, a city not unlike London in its multicultural setting, she draws heavily upon Cantonese, South-east Asian and Anglo/Modern European influences.
Varun loves exploring the regional intricacies across the Indian subcontinent. He moves effortlessly between a homey masala mixed by hand and french techniques picked up in fine-dining kitchens.
We cook with love and are heavily inspired by the flavours and stories we’ve picked up along the way. We love sustainably sourcing local producers and suppliers where we can. We believe in the magic of sharing our food family-style, the way we grew up eating in our own communities.
The upcoming dates exclusively feature a completely vegan menu!
