The Restaurant at St Paul’s Cathedral is rewarding the time and toil of London’s keenest gardeners with a ground breaking ‘Harvest Swap Shop’ -one box of your finest horticultural efforts in exchange for one free Sunday lunch.
On Sunday 27th September 2009, in celebration of British Food Fortnight (19th September – 4th October), the green fingered amongst you are encouraged to pick and pull your finest crops. Whether it is an allotment potato, a garden bean or a window box berry, simply fill a shoebox with some homegrown goodness and head to London’s landmark Cathedral. In return for your harvest, The Restaurant at St Paul’s will offer you a complimentary traditional Sunday roast, courtesy of head chef Candice Webber. Produce given will then be used in the restaurant’s kitchen with outstanding offerings highlighted on the following week’s menu alongside special thanks to the grower.
The Restaurant at St Paul’s and operator Harbour & Jones strive to serve the best of traditional British food. With a strong emphasis on provenance and seasonality, ingredients are locally sourced from handpicked specialist suppliers. Candice’s menu has foods from across the British Isles, providing traditional and almost forgotten food with an up-to-date twist.
The Restaurant at St Paul’s ‘Harvest Swap Shop’ hopes to further nurture an enthusiasm for homegrown ingredients.
To claim your free Sunday lunch, simply fill a shoebox with homegrown fruit and vegetables and present it to The Restaurant at St Paul’s on Sunday 27th September 2009 between 12 noon until 3pm. If you are interested in this you should note that each shoebox must be full of vegetables and or fruit to be considered for the Harvest Swap Shop. The offer is one shoebox per one free lunch and a free lunch consists of a complimentary Sunday roast, main course only. This offer is first come, first served and subject to availability and there is no alternative cash value. The offer only valid only on 27th September 2009. And all decisions taken by The Restaurant at St Paul’s will be final.
