When I was first contacted about Yumzee, a new dining concept in Birmingham, I was immediately interested. Based on the supper club concept, Yumzee lets people put their event on the website and diners can choose an event, pay in advance and then turn up!
Meals are held in host's homes, making for a cosy and relaxed atmosphere. I went along with fellow blogger Emily of Good Girl Gone Brum one Saturday evening. We were guests at 'A Taste of Home', with pakoras to start, then a huge Indian buffet and kulfi to finish.
We'd been asked if we had any dietary requirements before. I didn't so I was able to try a bit of everything. Most dishes were vegetarian but there were some delicious lightly spiced chicken drumsticks to try.
There were a variety of veggie curries to try but also some fabulous new ideas to try such as baked aubergine with yogurt. Delicious!
It certainly was a generous spread and was only £15 per ticket.

Although I went with someone I knew (which I think I would do again) it was great to meet some new people. Everyone was friendly and we all chatted lots. There were even party games at the end!
The event was BYOB but some of the events provide a cocktail or non-alcoholic drinks. We were also treated to some delicious chai tea at the end.
I ate delicious food and met some lovely people. We even ended up heading into Moseley to watch a band. I'd recommend Yumzee to anyone who loves food and conversation but I think it would be particularly great for anyone new to the area.
As well as meals there are gin tastings, afternoon tea and a Jamaican BBQ planned. If you like the sound of Yumzee, go to the website, browse the meals, choose how many tickets you want and pay. It's as simple as that.
Some photos by me and some provided by Yumzee. I didn't want to use my SLR in someone else's home.
My ticket was complimentary.
