One of my main chagrins at wine tastings and events is the paucity of food.
It will not be the case at Raw Fair, the natural wine event in London created by Isabelle Legeron.
2015 edition (May 17) will have an appetizing line-up of food offerings:
"Three of London’s top natural wine venues will be onsite serving a delicious array of dishes. The latest addition to the booming Hackney dining scene, The Richmond, will be hosting a Raw Fish Bar, all freshly caught in Cornwall. Rawduck, known for producing their own in-house pickles and ferments will be serving up enticing salads and you can enjoy a selection of top charcuterie from Antidote, London’s original natural wine bar.
The capital is a hub for artisan food producers of the highest quality and they’ll be out in force at RAW. Sample the likes of Hansen-Lydersen salmon, sustainably sourced from the Faroe Islands and smoked in Stoke Newington, a range of cheeses from Bermonsey-based Kappacasein Dairy and Mons Cheesemongers and handmade croissants, brownies and other sweet treats from The Little Bread Pedlar, who deliver their wares to cafes across the city by bicycle. Other not-to-be-missed delicacies include Maldon Oysters and traditional handmade pasta from pastificio Burro e Salvia, based in Shoreditch & East Dulwich. Rude Health , purveyors of delicious, healthy cereals and snacks, will be on hand, providing each wine producer with their Mini Thins - the perfect palate cleanser."
