The event follows the ‘Celebration of Forgotten Fare’ activities, which took place throughout the summer and will allow attendees to sample a number of traditional Christmas themed forgotten food dishes and ingredients. Taking place in the venue’s Dorchester Library, which houses thousands of rare books, the event will also showcase Christmas recipes and cookbooks which date back to the 15th century.
Festive-themed dishes will include Gulliver geese from Norfolk, 12th century Belted Galloway cattle from the Cumbrian fells, Avon river perch and trout, Irish soda bread and heritage farmhouse cheeses as well as delicious honey mead, bubbly and Christmas port.
Clive Ostler, Director of Facilities and Events Marketing at the Royal College of Physicians says: “We’re excited to be welcoming some of our clients back to the RCP for some festive themed food and celebration. Our Dorchester Library is the perfect space and lends itself well to a traditional theme. It’s set to be a brilliant evening.”
Fare of London’s Managing Director, John Durden adds: “We’re looking forward to our final Forgotten Foods event in partnership with the RCP. The venue is our longest standing business partner, so it’s the perfect location for the final celebration of our 25th anniversary year and gives us a great opportunity to celebrate with some of the loyal clients, colleagues, partners and suppliers who have supported us over the years.”
Fare of London’s ‘Celebration of Forgotten Fare’ campaign was launched in January to look back over the 25-year history of the company and celebrate the rich food heritage and food traditions of the UK.
