A Plant Hunter’s Yunnanese Adventure @ Fodder – Saturday 29th February 2020

*** This supper club is now sold out. Sorry if you missed out ***
*** Follow the Buy Tickets link below to sign up to our waiting list ***

This Spring we’ll be heading back to why our little supper club first started – our love of South East Asian Food. We’ll also be heading back to one of our favourite venues, the Fodder Cafe and Farm Shop at Finnebrogue Woods. We will be serving up a sumptuous Asian Feast in Fodder’s magical tipi nestled in the woods.


We’ll start the evening with drinks and nibbles around the fire, then step into Fodder’s cozy tipi. The menu is inspired by the first expedition in 1904 of the Scottish botanist and plant hunter, George Forrest (who is Jo’s great great uncle). He visited the Yunnan province of South West China, via India and Burma to collect seeds and plant specimens for avid collectors and botanical gardens back in the UK. We retraced his footsteps (and attempted to find his grave) approximately one hundred years later, and this menu celebrates some of the flavours and dishes we (and perhaps he) experienced along the way.
