Soul Fillers Launch @ Camp and Furnace Liverpool
The latest food revolution has arrived in Liverpool, food with a social conscience. Liverpool is undoubtedly being blessed with some of the best eateries in the country, a true gastronomic adventure for the hungry. Every week a new venue, from fast food, to fine dining to barbecue, brasserie and bistro opens, so to be a success in this city you really have to be something special, you have to offer something different. Soul Fillers is just that, different, super fabulous and exceptional and best of all created with a social conscience.
Soul Fillers is a catering company, with a fresh perspective. This really is food with a soul, its food that not only tastes absolutely amazing, but by buying it you know that you are helping to keep local people with learning disabilities and mental health concerns in work, because it’s them, led by successful chef Sky Glover who are the people behind Soul Fillers.
Last week Cake Club went to the official launch of Soul Fillers at Camp and Furnace – it was a spectacular occasion with fabulous music and seriously knock out food.
Each of the four delicious courses on the night was accompanied by fabulous live music.
The evening started with some seriously good canapes of gin-cured salmon on potato rosti with crème fraiche, sweet potato pakora with tahini and pomegranate, and cherry tomato and cedar cheese bites got things underway with some beautiful harp music from Maev McDaid.
Then things cranked up a notch for the starter sharing boards, and the musical baton was passed to Hardcore Hornography. They are Liverpool’s craft beer of brass bands. While we delved into goat’s cheese and beetroot dip, mackerel pate olives and feta with homemade bread, the 8-piece New Orleans Style Brass & Percussion Band played everything from David Bowie to S Club 7. They marched in and took place on the stage to keep our toes tapping along with the starters – once again the food spoke for itself, it was beautifully presented with mackerel pate being the best we have ever tasted.
A change of pace was delivered with the main course, and the Mersey Belles Nancy and Pearl took us on a trip down memory last infusing the ukulele with fabulous renditions of all the old classics from the 20’s right up to the 50’s, while making songs from the 21st century sound even better than they do on the wireless radio! The main course was the real celebrity of the night. Delivered as two sharing boards – one for veg and the other five spice salmon and horseradish silverside of beef – served as flawlessly perfectly pink. The veg sharing board was roasted cauliflower, roasted butternut squash stuffed with mushroom couscous and pomegranate, rainbow veg, garlic potatoes with a feta, melon chilli and pea shoot salad. The food looked and tasted seriously good, especially the silverside of beef, there was a scramble to eat every scrap.
The last course, dessert sharing boards which consisted of to die for banana and chocolate chip cake, eye-crossingly good toffee apple turnovers and perfectly crumbly meringues encased in chantilly cream strawberries and white chocolate. We enjoyed all this while listening to Up For Arts Community Choir. They sang beautiful A capella songs, their enjoyment shines through and their performance was wonderful from old classic or modern cover.
The evening was a delicious treat for the stomachs and ears and a resounding success showcasing Soul Fillers ability to pull off a fantastic party. That’s why if you need catering you need to book Soul Fillers, not to tick a box book Soul Fillers because their food isn’t just good – it’s bloody brilliant!
