Local restaurateur, Vernon Blackmore, and artisan coffee roaster, Paddy Bishopp, are launching a new street food concept 'Bubble & Squid' at a fundraising ‘pop up’ at Woodbridge Tide Mill on 2nd April.
The two course supper of seafood delights is followed by an optional desert and a warming Paddy & Scott's coffee. The meal costs £25 a head which includes a glass of fizz and after-dinner coffee. Dessert is an optional extra. Meat and vegetarian options are available by pre-arrangement and wine and soft drinks will be available to buy on the night.
Vernon said: "The evening aims to offer something a little bit different for the foodie community. You can't really beat dining in the Tide Mill, it is a truly unique and beautiful setting. We shall be using their famous flour to make bread and in at least one other dish we serve on the night. Plus, we hope to donate £5 per person to Woodbridge Tide Mill."
Paddy added: "We see 'Bubble & Squid' as a fixture at popular summer festivals and outdoor events. The deliciously fresh combination of sparkling wines and champagne, along with some tasty squid dishes like calamari, potted prawn and squid and Spanish squid and chorizo stew, provides something a little different for the discerning outdoor diner."
Nigel Barratt, Miller and Chairman of Woodbridge Tide Mill Trust added: “We’re really pleased to be working with Vernon to bring people into the Mill for a fabulous experience. We’re equally grateful that he’s helping us to raise the valuable funds needed to keep this iconic piece of local heritage in good working order.”
