Fugu Supper Club
Finally, next month sees the launch of what’s being hailed as the, ‘UK’s most dangerous supper club.’ The Fugu Supper Club is the first dining experience to serve the notorious ‘Torafugu’ or ‘tiger blowfish’ in the UK. Although the rare delicacy has been eaten by Japenese gourmets and is a celebrated dish in Japan it is not permitted for sale in the EU. However, it is now available for adventurous London diners to try for themselves as Fugu Supper Club have managed to bring small amounts into the country for personal consumption at private dinner parties.
Torafugu is the most prestigious of the edible pufferfish species however it is also the most toxic of marine creatures due to the lethal amounts of the poison tetrodotoxin it contains. One fish contains enough poison to kill 30 adults and the fish has to be carefully prepared by highly skilled chefs to remove the toxic parts of its anatomy and to avoid contaminating the edible flesh. Hmmm, we’re thinking carefully about this one...
The pop-up launches in London at various locations, which could range from a grand central London mansion to an unoccupied gallery space. Thrill-seekers will be able to enjoy a champagne reception before sitting down to a six-course, ‘omakase fugu’ feast prepared by experienced chefs.
Adventurous diners are asked to register their interest through the Fugu Supper Club website and if you’re lucky enough to be chosen you will be emailed a time and location of your sitting. It must be said that the experience doesn’t come cheap, tickets are £250 a head and places are limited. Get in quick as the Fugu Supper Club is running for a limited time only.
