We all love seafood - but what about riverfood? This is the concept behind this Sunday lunch from the team behind Cooper's Restaurant Consultants, who are taking over the MV Royalty, moored at Festival Pier, near Waterloo Bridge. It all sounds delicious; expect kippers, pike, and duck, among other things.
"Thousands of species of edible fish live in rivers all around the world, so it’s hardly surprising that over 125 different types can be found in the fresh river waters of the United Kingdom. Despite the current interest in locally sourced ingredients, regional recipes and even foraging, few chefs have as yet to explore and serve food from this rich and diverse supply…until now.
#RIVERFOOD is the brainchild of trio Phil Cooper, Arno Marsman and Andrea Britton of Coopers Restaurant Consultants. During a career spanning 30 years, Phil Cooper has established himself as one of the most successful chefs in the UK, working with respected names such as The Waterside Inn, Claridges, The Mirabelle and Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons to name a few.
Taking place aboard one of the oldest boats on the Thames, the MV Royalty, the #RIVERFOOD launch will bring together a wide variety of dishes using produce, sourced predominately from Rivers across the UK, including the Thames Estuary. All aboard can sample dishes from the extensive Coopers #RIVERFOOD menu such as;
Hollow Shore Oysters with Green Tabasco Jelly,
Estuary Smoked Kipper with Clarence Court Egg and Cress,
Pike and Green Peppercorn Sausage with Puy Lentils.
Chargrilled Jack Pike with Oyster Sour Cream
Roast Duck with Pickled Gooseberry.
Get yourself down to the MV Royalty at Festival Pier, grab a glass of bubbles or a pint of Meantime Ale and join us on a voyage of gastronomical delight."
