Contract and event caterer Fare of London has partnered with British buffalo supplier Laverstoke Park Farm to offer UK buffalo meat and buffalo mozzarella as part of its Forgotten Fare campaign.
Fare of London chefs have developed locally sourced seasonal dishes, including house-smoked, slow-cooked buffalo, and roast fillet and faggot of buffalo with Yorkshire truffled potato and Surrey wine jus. The options will be available across a number of client venues.
Laverstoke Park Farm has also been chosen as the company's supplier of free-range, organic Leghorn and Maran hens' eggs.
Fare of London's managing director John Durden (pictured) commented: "We're really excited about our new relationship with Laverstoke Park Farm. Buffalo meat is a tasty full-flavoured alternative to beef; it can be prepared much the same way as beef without special handling.
"Although perhaps not an obvious choice for British Food Fortnight, the buffalo meat gives us the chance to take our Forgotten Fare campaign to the next stage; showcasing the best of British."
Laverstoke Park Farm's owner, former Formula One World Champion Jody Scheckter, added: "I started the farm in 2001 to produce the best tasting and healthiest food for me and my family. The farm has now expanded in size to over 2,500 acres and we are known for buffalo meat but also the expanding range of buffalo cheeses we produce. We look forward to working with Fare of London."
