Testimonial: Here is what one our supperclub guest had to say about our Chinese New Year Supperclub:

“Was at the supperclub on Friday night – my first one, & I loved it. Great food & company. Really well organised, felt I learned a bit. Arrived in a room of strangers and went home having met new friends. Highly recommended.” Alan

Another testimonial at our last supperclub:

I recently went to one of the Malaysian themed supper clubs by May and and a fantastic evening. May was a very friendly host who never ceased to provide us with the most delicious Malaysian dishes, which were so flavoursome and the quality of the food was outstanding. There was a lot of food offered so we were all pretty full but we had the option to help ourselves to as much or as little as we wanted and this way we were able to get a well rounded experience of Malaysian food as a whole. I have never tried Malaysian food but am very partial to Thai, Chinese, Indian and Japanese food, which was was why I was so keen to come to the Supper Club here. I can safely say I’ll be having Malaysian food again and the fact that here you get it through genuine home cooking, in such generous amounts makes it such good value for money, topped by the fact that you get to meet so many other interesting people. I would definitely recommend it for a truly enjoyable evening and added to this it won’t break the bank! Kat, London

Things to consider before you buy a fridge freezer

Which combination of Fridge & Freezer is right for you?

How to choose a fridge freezer

Fridge freezers are the most used appliance in our kitchens in the UK, with the kettle coming a close second.  They are such an integral part of our lives it is hard to comprehend what life would be like without one.  So, when it comes to deciding between a freestanding fridge freezer unit and separate units, it’s important to make the right choice based on your needs.

Choosing what type of cooling appliance you need can be a difficult decision. Do you get a separate fridge and freezer or a space-saving fridge-freezer?  Your available space of course, will normally be the deciding factor.  In a smaller kitchen you may be inclined to get a fridge freezer to save space; or your existing kitchen design might dictate under the counter appliances, leaving you no option but to buy separate units.

Freestanding fridge freezers are usually the cheapest option, and the easiest to fit into your kitchen, making them ideal if space is tight.  They are often the most popular type of fridge freezer available.

There are many advantages to choosing an all-in-one fridge freezer unit, including: lower electricity costs; they are widely available in a range of colours, sizes and prices; you can opt for a larger fridge or freezer compartment depending on whether you need space for more fresh or frozen food; they are easy to fit into a kitchen; and they take up less space.  Buying a fridge freezer is also typically cheaper than forking out for a separate fridge and freezer for your kitchen.

How to choose a fridge freezer

The actual size of your fridge freezer will depend very much on the space you have available.  The trend is for people looking to buy fridge freezers to opt for a larger American-style machine with icemakers and water chilling function built-in.  However aspirational this may be it is not an option for everyone, especially if you are replacing an integrated fridge freezer that needs to fit in your kitchen.

Fridge freezers come in a variety of widths and heights, and are superb space savers.  It is important though, if going for this option, that you look at the split between the fridge and freezer areas to get an idea what type will best suit your lifestyle.

Overall though, if saving space is your main area of concern, then opting for a fridge freezer is the best choice.

Chinese new year lion dance

Extra Date: Chinese New Year Supperclub 16 Feb

It’s the Year of the Horse! We love celebrating Chinese New Year as it always involves lots of parties and a lot of food. For the Year of the Horse we are planning a special Chinese New Year Feast ( but no horse meat on the menu ;-) )

Chinese New Year is celebrated for 15 days in the first month of the lunar calendar. In London, the Chinese community celebrate this with a big festival in Trafalgar Square (Sunday 2 Feb) and around London Chinatown. In Malaysian, Chinese New Year is celebrated with a 2 day public holiday and we usually visit family and friends in their homes. It is a Malaysian custom to have an open house where you invite your friends of all races to visit, eat and party. Children love Chinese New Year as they will receive lucky red packets full of money when they visit family and friends.

 

Since all my transplanted Malaysian friends in London really miss Chinese New Year we usually celebrate with a big feast.

At our Malaysian Chinese New Year Supperclub will serve 8 auspicious courses of Malaysian and Chinese dishes.  We will definitely have the famous Malaysian New Year dish, Yee Sang, the raw fish salad that is usually only served during Chinese New Year.

Venue: A private home in Putney

Dates: 16 February

Tickets: £38

Shanghai Moon Pop Up With Jason Li

September Moon Festival Supperclubs

This September, we are hosting 2 supperclubs celebrating the Chinese Moon Festival (Mid Autumn Festival) . The first will be an 8 course feast  of Malaysian Chinese dishes (24 September) and the second will be a special Shanghainese Pop Up evening (Monday 30 September) .

One off Special: The Shanghai Moon Pop Up

This is one night only event with guest Shanghainese chef Jason Li. The menu will feature an array of unusual Shanghainese dishes, a cuisine not easily found in London as we don’t have any proper Shanghainese Restaurants. Shanghainese food is very different from Cantonese cuisine, which is what most of the Chinese restaurants serve and Szechuan cuisine which has recently become increasingly popular.

Tickets: £38 includes a welcome drink

Venue: The Jam Tree, Old Town, Clapham SW4

Nearest Tube: Clapham Common

Unmissable! (Tickets are moving quickly on this one so book early)

Book Now by emailing us at bookings [at] malaysianbymay.com

Guest Chef Jason Li

Jason Li is a fantastic Shanghainese cook and he is regularly featured at food festivals demonstrating Chinese cooking. He is also the ambassador for some
recognisable Chinese food brands.

The 10 Course menu he has designed will be a celebration of the Moon Festival, Shanghainese style.
