Back from Burmese Night at the Wild Garlic

Just got back from Beaminster in Dorset - my first pop-up Burmese restaurant night was a blast. Thank you for all your good wishes!

I'll write more about it soon, but in the meantime, here is a review from one of the diners that night, Lost in the Larder.

And here also a word or two from the man who made this all possible - Mat Follas, chef patron of the Wild Garlic.

And lastly for now is the menu:

  1. Well done, MiMi. An epic task by the looks of it and it sounds as though it went brilliantly - still trawling for the cookbook!

  2. Sounds like it all went very well. i really like the format of the evening from LITL's description. Really social and fun. I am now more intrigued than ever about Burmese food. Can't wait for your next popup (please tell me there's going to be more, and in London, for those metropolitan car-less types like me...)

  13. Congrats! Now you need to do one in London! I know a place in Putney run by a jolly greengrocer chap that might accomodate you. On second thoughts...
