Is this shop a new way to support their restaurants?
Yes, but it's actually bigger than that. Sure, Wright Brothers have five restaurants in London that are currently closed to the lockdown but, as wholesalers, they also supply over 300 of the city's top restaurants and chefs. That's a lot of business to lose and if we want them, and the fishing boats down in Brixham who supply them, to make it out of the other end of this crisis, we will need to give them our support where we can.
What's for sale?
If you're after some guidance, then you could opt for one of their selection boxes. You can choose a range depending on the size of your household and whether you're after fresh or smoked seafood. Looking for inspiration on what to make with it? There's an extensive recipe section on the shop's site, created by chefs from their restaurants, with ideas like piri-piri lobster or BBQ monkfish kebabs.
We decided to go for a more a-la-carte selection, getting a selection of shellfish, so we could put together a series of seafood platters and dishes over the course of a week. Here's what we had:
Anything to drink?
Not right now. We'd have loved to see some of the lovely wines they have in their restaurants on offer here too, so maybe that's something they'd consider adding in the future.
If you've been getting pangs at the idea of sitting alfresco at one of Wright Brothers' restaurants with a platter of top-class seafood and a glass of wine in hand - then this will most definitely tide you over.
