Fare of London announces Forgotten Food Celebrations as part of 'Forgotten Fare' campaign

Fare of London’s ‘Taste of Fare’ events took place in 2014
Contract and event caterer Fare of London today announces that it will host two Forgotten Food celebration events during Slow Food Week as part of its Forgotten Fare campaign launched in February. The events will be held at two of Fare of London’s client venues, the Honourable Artillery Company and the Royal College of Physicians on the 1st and 3rd June respectively.

The Forgotten Food celebrations will welcome event planners and agents and will adopt a ‘Back to the Future’ theme, showcasing lesser used or forgotten ingredients, uncovered as part of the Forgotten Fare campaign. Live food demonstrations will be given by Fare of London’s award winning chefs, taking the selected ingredients and reviving them in the form of newly created dishes. The events will also comprise forgotten drinks, along with food tastings, recipe cards for attendees, live music and competitions throughout the evening.  

Forgotten foods identified and set to feature on the evening of the events include wild boar, Herdwick Hogget, a double curd Lancashire cheese and traditional drinks, along with a selection of forgotten pudding recipes.  

Fare of London Managing Director John Durden says: “We’re really excited to be recognising the importance of our British food heritage.  It’s such a shame that large-scale suppliers and businesses have made it really difficult for artisan producers to survive in such a competitive industry, so we’re really proud to be celebrating Slow Food Week by supporting and helping to raise the profile of some of our forgotten UK foods, bringing them back to the fore and helping to get them onto the events industry agenda.”  

Fare of London’s campaign to celebrate Forgotten Fare was launched in February to mark the 25th anniversary of the company and to promote the recognition of forgotten foods and biodiversity in the food and hospitality industry.  

Slow Food Week was established by the Slow Food Movement UK, an organisation that promotes UK food traditions and heritage, recognises the importance of artisan food suppliers and the maintenance of forgotten foods in modern menus.
