Has anyone come across “WeFiFo” yet? It stands for “We Find Food”. It’s an online business that promotes all sorts of foody events online—particularly pop-up restaurants and supper clubs.

I think it’s a brilliant idea, and really hope it takes off, especially for events outside London. I’ve just signed up to join them, and I’m holding my first WeFiFo event at home on Saturday, 12 May. This is from the WeFiFo page about it:

Come and join me for a delicious multi-course feast from the heart of Indonesian food, the island of Java, where I was born and learned to cook.

I’ve been cooking for private parties for quite a few years. From time to time I arrange a supper party at my house in Hampshire. This is my first through WeFiFo!
