Like workers everywhere, at Rochester PR our lunch choices are often determined by considerations of speed, economy and health (not necessarily always in that order). However, on Friday's we try to do something a bit different and more adventurous; from taking part in a Cook, Eat and Run class at our client L'atelier des Chefs, to sampling the fare at a local food market.
Today our destination was Berwick Street Market; our objective, to sample some of the best street food Soho has to offer. After much deliberation we opted for a lunch of pizza and cake, but not just any pizza and cake…
The fact that Pizza Pilgrims cook their pizzas in the back of a tiny green pizza oven on wheels, coupled with the aroma of their authentic Neapolitan offering proved to be the tipping point on the savoury front. The Nduja pizza was a particular highlight; nicknamed Italy’s chorizo, it was fragrant without being too spicy and the rocket garnish liberally sprinkled over after cooking complemented the flavours brilliantly.
After devouring our pizzas we were seduced by Fiendish & Goode’s delectable dainties, so decided to take a selection back to the office to get us in the mood for the long Jubilee weekend. Our selection of two British classics - Vanilla Victoria and Sticky toffee walnut, as well as two more unusual options - Parsnip pecan ginger and Cardamom white chocolate and raspberry certainly didn’t disappoint in the taste stakes, and because they were so dainty we avoided a mid-Friday-afternoon slump.
