Single source lunches

After visiting Norse by Norsewest the folk at Absolut asked us to help out with their launch of Absolut Elyx, their new super-premium Swedish vodka.

What makes Absolut Elyx so special is that all of the ingredients used to make it are all sourced from within a 20 mile radius of the well, from which the all important water used to make Absolut so pure, is drawn.

We were asked if we could host a Norse by Norsewest style lunch, with all of the ingredients used to prepare the food coming from a single location.  We had a think, made some calls, and found the perfect solution.

The answer was Emmet's Farm in Little Marlowe in Buckinghamshire.  Formerly used for fruit picking, Emmet's now supplies the thriving local restaurant scene with fresh fruit and vegetables, but is also home to Phil Bowditch, a butcher and fishmonger who rears and slaughters nearby, and has an onsite smoker for seafood that Phil brings direct from Brixham each morning.  

The lunches were hosted at Back in 5 Minutes by the DDC team, and were accompanied by a vodka tasting, and plenty of Absolut Elyx cocktails.  We also sourced a range of copper service ware, vessels and objects to dress the restaurant; Elyx being made in a copper still.

We also treated our guests to some of DDC Head Chef Fred's aquavit, flavoured with lemon, carraway, fennel & elderflower, made to an old Swedish family recipe.
