I am co-founder and chef of the world renowned (so I'm told, I can hardly believe it myself) Fernandez and Leluu supper club. I have really enjoyed doing it, the cooking the experimenting, and meeting people. Hosting events at Uyen's place, for what I can only describe as a pretty funky, switched on crowd, serving 6 - 8 courses of fab flavours, has been hard work. But it's been very rewarding to see all those smiling faces when I finally get the opportunity to leave the kitchen and go and mingle at the end of the night. We've done a variety of events for folks such as Yell, After Eights, Unearthed, Action Against Hunger, The Jamie Oliver Foundation, Ryvita, Green & Blacks which have all gone fabulously, darling!

I spent Christmas and New Year cooking in the Alps, and my "break" away really got me thinking about life . . . on my return to England I was lucky enough to be offered a beautiful venue to host events in so I've decided to take the offer and set up ferdiesfoodlab.

It's a little different from Fernandez and Leluu. A few years back I threw a birthday banquet. To set the mood, I asked everyone to bring a large goblet for wine drinking, a tankard for beer and to arrive at 7PM for 7.30: - sorry about the photos, 2 mega pixel phone cam was top end back then!
34 people, 1 living room, loads of food, wine, music and conversation!

This event was later recalled as, "mind boggling", I love it. We all had a great time! Above: Aftermath.

The new venue is a little different to my old lounge . . . .
It's a grade 2 listed building for a start! Beatifully decorated with a huge table, perfect for a banquet! 
Opening Banquet was on Sat 27th Aug - Bank Holiday Weekend - Menu below - Big smiles!!!
