Event Photo

An African Fusion menu for those who want to try some new flavours but made for the western palate. There will be a veggie and fish option for those who don't eat meat. The venue is in East London on the central line.

Its called The Sharing Supper Club because instead of individual servings we have big plates of food which everyone can pick and chose from. Lots of choice for everyone.

Its a very social way of eating and usually a lot of fun. It's BYO but you will get a cocktail and canapes on arrival.

For up to 14 people to share and enjoy.

£30 a head with £15 deposit. Based in East London

African Fusion at The Sharing Supperclub

The meal was very delicious there was a variety of dishes to suit everyone. Those who wanted to taste everything could do so. I tasted a bit of everything and am still unable to say what I like best because each dish was a feast. The sauces were thick aromatic and so tasty, the meat in the stew was so tender. The rice cooked a l'African was so moreish. The exotic vegetables were a pleasure to the palate and a lot of thought and care went into the presentation of each dish. Those with a sweet tooth and a gluten free diet were delighted with the gooey rich chocolate dessert. Highly recommended for those with a very empty stomach because there is a lot to eat and savour.

Something good worth sharing...

The Sharing Supper Club was my first experience of a supper club and didn’t disappoint.

If like me before I lost my SC virginity, you like the idea of them but need some gentle persuasion, I suggest you head straight to E18 and let Ben and Jen ease you in nicely.

It’s a very casual affair and they couldn’t be more welcoming (just search for the sharing supper club on Facebook to see their smiley faces). Despite venturing bravely on my own I was soon made to feel at ease, probably helped by the glass of bubbles placed in my hand and the tray of canapés under my nose. I particularly liked the crabmeat, ginger and coriander on radicchio. Eleven introductions later (I was almost last to arrive) and any reservations I might have had are forgotten.

Their KSP? Sharing plates of yummy African inspired fusion food, or at least that’s what was on the menu when I visited Ben’s South Woodford flat – that and plenty of good conversation and mingling on the side.

Fourteen of us sat down banqueting style to 3 courses of delicious grub. Starters included two salads; one of roast duck, orange and beetroot, the other mixed herb and sweet couscous. Mains were a Nigerian mixed meat stew and pan-fried Suya chicken thighs with jollof rice. Everything was cooked beautifully and extremely tasty. Also being served up were helpful tips from chef Ben on how to perfectly prepare plantain (one of our 4 side dishes) after one of the guests divulged how she’d ruined hers the one time she experimented.

I had to stop myself from a third portion of stew knowing poached pears in a honey syrup and African chocolate cake with raspberry coulis were still to come. I went for both, as did almost everyone at the long table. The chocolate cake was properly delicious.

---Top tip---

Arrive hungry because Ben and Jen do not skimp on portions, which when everyone is sharing big platters of food is a testament to their generosity.


All in all I had a fantastic evening and left pleased that I’d taken the plunge.

I imagine my first will not be my last.
