Papaya Verte is run by self-trained chef Jaki Clibbon, an orphan of Vietnam who grew up in Melbourne, Australia and is rediscovering traditional Vietnamese flavours through travel, friendship and a little bit of trial-and-error.
This will be a small, family-style supper club with large sharing platters of freshly prepared food brought to the table in 3 courses. Each individual will be provided with their own table setting and utensils, plenty of fresh herbs, pickles and dipping sauces. Please BYO laughter and stories to tell. This meal will be offered in both a meat/seafood option and a vegetarian option (or both if you like!) and is the chef's personal representation of a home style Vietnamese meal.
