Fodder by Aimee Supper Club

The “secret menu” is carefully curated for each event and is revealed to diners on the night. The dishes aim to avoid being fussy or convoluted, but are seriously dedicated to being a party in the mouth, as well as some solid feeding. The hope is that people can come along to the FODDER Supper Club, eat some delish food, and chat to someone new.
