Gone is the greasy burger and chip scene that dominated festivals throughout our teens and all the better for it – our metabolisms just aren’t what they used to be. The Gladwin Brothers (the brothers behind the acclaimed wild food restaurants, Rabbit on King’s Road and The Shed in Notting Hill) are now bringing a touch of health, with their new pop-up –Foraged Food To Go.
The brothers are going on tour and bringing a taste of the countryside to various festivals such as Wilderness, Latitude, Lovebox and Meatopia. They will kick off their summer of tantalising our tastebuds and foraging under the stars with a dedicated pop-up on 28th May in partnership with food writer and presenter William Sitwell in Northamptonshire.
The are sticking to a bit of rough and ready, with their decor, as the decking area is made from recycled wood and metal. Additionally, they have tailored their restaurants as “What grows together, goes together” and most of their food for Foraged Food To Go will be sourced from their West Sussex farm. The ingredients will come together to create dishes such as BBQ Sticky Sussex Beef, Pickled Cucumber and Lettuce and Nutbourne Feta.
For all you vino lovers (let’s be honest that’s most of us), the brothers will also be opening up their award winning vineyard, Nutborne, for tastings, so the general public will be able to experience how the grapes go from vines, to the bottle and finally to tables of In The Shed and Rabbit. You literally can’t beat a cold glass of rose on a balmy summer afternoon and anyone who dares to argue just hasn’t lived.
We might come home with dwindling bank balances, grazed knees and bags under our eyes but at least we can say we were eating healthily along the way – here’s to The Gladwin Brothers and Foraged Food To Go.
