Noun - food, especially dried hay or straw, for cattle and other livestock.
Verb - give fodder to (cattle or other livestock).
fodder is a pop-up restaurant, supper club and catering company based in London. It's led by chef Michael Thompson (previously of Grosvenor House, Pollen Street Social, fera and Lyan Cub) along with Jenny Novitzky and Louise Stapley. We were joined in 2018 by Jake Harle, who heads up all things number- and business-related.
fodder, an old English word for giving sustenance, encapsulates our ideals of produce, seasonality, and coming together to eat. Though we were born in the city, our roots lie in the farms where the food we serve has come from. We work to unearth amazing people who are growing unusual things in interesting ways — especially if that means bringing a forgotten or lesser-used food source to our table. We're all about seasonality, sustainability and craftsmanship, from the producers who bring food to our plates, to the ceramicists who created the plate itself.
After a short hiatus, we're working on some new projects that will be kicking off in August 2019. Check our Instagram for the latest news and if you, or someone you know, wants to work with us, we'd love to hear from you.
