Seafoodis delicious – FACT. Riverfood however, does conjure up tales of terror coming from the Thames. Nobody wants to bring back cholera or eat a four eyed fish…
Britain is a network of rivers, and the Thames included, are the cleanest they have ever been. Over 125 species of edible fish are swimming up and down the UK right now, commuting just like us.
#riverfood is about to change peoples perspective on eating river fish. When fresh is best and local is love, maybe we should all start looking closer to home…or the river.
On 21st July, Hop onboard the MV Royalty at Festival Pier by Waterloo Bridge for a Sunday lunch like no other. Phil Cooper, with Arno Marsman and Andrea Britton of Coopers Restaurant Consultants are bringing ‘A brand new foodie event for Londoners’.
The menu features, Hollowshore oysters with shallot vinegar and Tabasco Jelly, Rainbow trout tartar with avocado and belle radish and Blue trout with beetroot, pink apple and Dorset Blue Vinny. All which sound utterly delish, not forgetting London’s very own Estuary smoked kipper with egg and cress.
Whilst eating your way through the rivers, take your seat on deck and enjoy the city skyline views with a glass of champs or a tasty pint of Meantime Ale. Sounds like a sweet Sunday to us!
Tickets cost £24.95
