Find food for the soul on First Table in London
5 minute read
“Food may be essential as fuel for the body, but good food is fuel for the soul” said entrepreneur Malcolm Forbes.
In recent years there has been an increasing trend towards plant-based foods, locally sourced and sustainable produce and farm-to-fork dining. It's not surprising that many restaurants have followed suit and are consciously offering food that’s good for the body, soul and the environment. Here's our picks of London restaurants that are good for the soul.
Where else to start but The Shed, the original Gladwin Brothers offering, bringing the fruits of the farm to Notting Hill. The menu features hyper-seasonal produce, with a focus on zero waste. Ingredients are locally grown and foraged, and meat is sourced from the Gladwin farm in West Sussex, championing sustainable livestock.
Created by founder and chef Romain Bourrillon, Cocotte’s menu showcases the best local produce and farm-to-table meats. With a menu that includes plant based popcorn chicken, a roast cauliflower and oyster mushroom salad, vegetarians and vegans are well looked after (as well as extensive allergen information on their menu). With 5 restaurants in Notting Hill, Shoreditch, Persons Green, Queen’s Park and South Kensington you're spoilt for choice.
Purezza in Camden is the first Pizzeria in the UK to have an entirely vegan menu, making it good for your body and better for the planet. Where science meets food, Purezza took two years to create a plant-based mozzarella that tastes and melts just like dairy. Their menu is 95% gluten-free and sustainably sourced and even their restaurant fit-outs are made with recycled and refurbished materials. Purezza is prize winning, planet-saving pizza.
