Coopers #riverfood: brand new foodie event London 21.7.13

I have been invited to attend #riverfood a new foodie event on London's South bank, giving a "posh twist on the food-to-go market". 

"Thousands of species of edible fish live in rivers all around the world, so it’s hardly surprising that over 125 different types can be found in the fresh river waters of the United Kingdom. Despite the current interest in locally sourced ingredients, regional recipes and even foraging, few chefs have as yet to explore and serve food from this rich and diverse supply...until now."

Coopers #riverfood is the brainchild of trio Phil Cooper, Arno Marsman and Andrea Britton of Coopers Restaurant Consultants. During a career spanning 30 years, Phil Cooper has established himself as one of the most successful chefs in the UK, working with respected names such as The Waterside Inn, Claridges, The Mirabelle and Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons to name a few.

Coopers #riverfood will be serving a variety of locally sourced, regional foods, with "ingredients sourced mainly from River Thames estuaries" - including items such as:

 Hollow Shore Oysters with Green Tabasco Jelly, Estuary Smoked Kipper with Clarence Court Egg and Cress, Pike and Green Peppercorn Sausage with Puy Lentils, Chargrilled Jack Pike with Oyster Sour
Cream and Roast Duck with Pickled Gooseberry.

I'm looking forward to it - and will let you know all about it when I come ashore next week!
