Artisan food producers line up to take part in RAW
RAW, the artisan wine fair - a two-day celebration of some of the best natural wine talent in the world - will feature a wide variety of exciting artisan food stalls, providing visitors with the perfect accompaniment to the 800 wines on offer at the fair.
Ducksoup, the Soho bistro from the ex Mark Hix team, which features an exclusively natural wine list, is hosting a pop-up café and visitors can also enjoy posh hotdogs with proper sausages by Hoxton Beach, whose owner Patrick Matthews, wrote the first English-language book on natural wine.
Fans of the ever-growing Maltby Street market will be pleased to know there will be a selection of stalls from the area including cheeses from Neal’s Yard. Borough Market’s Elliot’s Café will be hosting an Oyster shucking stand. Lalani & Co will be providing teas from their boutique estates and those with a sweet tooth can sample cakes from Jamie Oliver’s favourite cake maker and Broadway Market favourite Violet Cakes.
Signe Johansen, acclaimed food writer and author of Secrets of Scandinavian Cooking… Scandilicious, is hosting a stall at the show, allowing visitors to sample her delicious Scandinavian delicacies as well as doing a book signing of her acclaimed recipe book.
Belu are providing water for the event and Rude Health are supplying palate cleansers on each of the 200 producers stands.
Monday night will see a farewell Georgian Supra taking place at the Old Truman Brewery, bringing together press and producers for a taste of Georgia, the little-known, big-souled country that invented wine over 8000 years ago. The menu is being put together by London’s Little Georgia restaurants, in association with Hibiscus’ 2-star Michelin chef Claude Bosi. The food and wine will be accompanied by music from a live Georgian polyphonic choir, singing songs protected as cultural heritage of world importance by UNESCO.
