Once upon a time there was fed by water, a concept restaurant located in buzzy Dalston, East London. fed by water known (so they say) for great eating and drinking, for innovation with quality. With distinctive sophistication and simplicity the ultimate drive was respect for animals, the planet, and for health.
“Der Mensch ist was er isst” or “We are what we eat”. So said Ludwig Feuerbach, a German philosopher and anthropologist, who in 1862 clearly defined a long-standing statement which has never been more appropriate. In this day and age what we eat is what we are, our body, our mind and our soul depend on what we feed them.
In a world dominated by junk food, with powerful chemicals as the main ingredient we are presented only with capitalism for nourishment. It was time to really look into these wise words so the concept of fed by water, was not just about being “fed” but about a luxurious and healthy experience. Fed “by water” is because life begins with water…
When attention is focused on water as the first element and its purity never taken for granted, care in selecting the other ingredients for a dish becomes the vision. You can be a genius in a kitchen but not necessarily a miracle-worker if ingredients are tasteless or contaminated. Fed kitchens believe that only with the best components can creativity, skill and ingenuity come into play. With pure water at the start eventually we will all get there.
Inspired by Italy’s rich culinary history, while adding extra “sensibility” fed by water pioneered fully plant-based Italian cuisine in the United Kingdom. From its base in London, satisfying foodies from all over the world with a sensorial experience full of flavour and without guilt. Cruelty free, vegan and lavish was the mission.
