fodder's Autumn Residency at Platform1 in East Dulwich


fodder, fresh from a short residency at Borough Wines in N1, have now taken over the kitchen at Platform1 in Lordship Lane, East Dulwich, serving their wild, local and seasonal menu from Tuesdays to Saturdays until 25th November 2017.  The six course tasting menu costs just £35, with optional wine pairings, a very good price considering both the skills of the chefs and the quality of the produce.  On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, in addition to the £35 menu fodder offer a ‘Test Kitchen menu’ at £20/£25 for two/three courses of dishes which are in development; diners are asked for feedback and the most popular dishes will go on the main menu.  Go!

"Platform1, the East Dulwich restaurant renowned for being a springboard for some of Britain’s brightest new chef talent, has announced that fodder will be their next chef residency, taking the helm for two months from Thursday 5th October.
Opened on Lordship Lane in 2015 by Chloe Gounder-Forbes, Platform1 has nurtured now-well-known names such as Perilla and Smoke & Salt, both of which have gone on to open permanent restaurants of their own. Most recently it hosted Olive & Thyme, led by chef Christopher Bower, former executive chef of Thackeray’s in Royal Tunbridge Wells where he was awarded three AA Rosettes and won a Michelin star.
fodder, created by chefs Michael Thompson and Ollie Downey together with co-founders Jenny Novitzky and Louise Stapley, celebrates all things wild, local and seasonal, bringing ‘a fresh twist to fine dining’ by working with foraged produce and a community of carefully-selected suppliers.
Alumni of Fera at Claridge’s, Michael and Ollie share a passion for produce and seek to tell a story with every aspect of a meal.  It’s a philosophy which impressed Chloe Gounder-Forbes, who challenges chefs – chosen through a rigorous, audition-like process – to deliver a consistently high-quality, ingredient-led set menu for £35 per person, as well as a bar snacks menu. fodder have risen to the challenge and created a menu for Platform1 which will include:
- Heritage carrots and butterhead lettuce with smoked hay
- Chicken and spelt ragu, sauerkraut, mushroom and bread broth
- Caramelised pear, buckwheat, hogweed and whisky
fodder will work with several south London-based suppliers including Moxon’s Fresh Fish of East Dulwich, The Butchery in Forest Hill, and Article No.25, based in Elephant & Castle, who use discarded grounds from London coffee shops to grow mushrooms. Herbs will be grown on-site in propagators and in planters on Platform1’s outdoor terrace. From further afield, organic salads, fruits and vegetables will be supplied by Good Earth Growers, a Cornwall-based collective with whom fodder have formed a lasting relationship.
To drink, guests can choose a wine pairing at £30 or £40, or order by the glass, carafe or bottle from Platform1’s concise, considered list championing ‘forgotten grapes’ – rare and indigenous grape varieties. Alternatively, a wide range of cocktails, premium spirits and soft drinks are available."
