Fare of London showcases Forgotten Foods to over 325 event professionals

Fare of London showcases Forgotten Foods
To commemorate its 25th anniversary, contract and event caterer Fare of London recently welcomed more than 325 event professionals to its Celebration of Forgotten Fare events. These events were held in partnership with two of Fare’s largest London client venues, The HAC on Monday 1st June and the Royal College of Physicians on Wednesday 3rd June. The events are part of Fare of London’s Celebration of Forgotten Fare campaign, which seeks to uncover forgotten and artisan British foods and to reintroduce these to event catering menus.

Attendees were educated on a number of forgotten food ingredients, including: Herdwick Hogget, a rare type of Mutton from Lancashire, which was slow braised and served with salad and couscous; and Formby Asparagus and heritage tomatoes, served along with beetroot and watercress salads in a salad bar buffet. Wild boar hog roast was served with a spiced red cabbage coleslaw whilst a selection of artisan British cheeses were showcased along with English wines from the Bolney Estate in Sussex.

Canapés of fried brie and sun-dried tomato, Cromer crab tartlets and Morecombe bay potted shrimp were served as guests arrived at the vintage themed garden parties. Tea and traditional British cakes were served on vintage china, as well as Queen of puddings and Cumberland rum nicky. Guests were also entertained by 1940s vocal trio, The Three Belles, who sang a number of classic wartime, jazz and swing hits. 

Fare of London’s Managing Director John Durden says: “We were delighted with how well the events and the food were received. Both events had such a fantastic turnout. It’s really encouraging for us to know that event industry professionals are genuinely interested in food provenance and artisan British foods in need of revival.”
