Farm to Table Goodness….don’t you agree?

What is the definition of farm to table? Is it a super cool restaurant that grows vegetables on their teeny tiny rooftop garden, jumping on the bandwagon of the latest phad? What about the cafe around the corner that “buys local” from Cheapside market every Saturday morning, or fish from the fish market every day? Luckily we’ve done the research for you, and when we say it’s local, we actually know what local farm it came from. Just ask us.
For a long time now, The Mews has been heading in the direction of moving away from buying imported produce and changing our menu to reflect a more sustainable and local product. We have searched the Island St Lucy to Christchurch, East Coast to Speightstown to find only the freshest, local and most organic produce we have on offer as an Island and let me tell you, we have some pretty darn good produce. From the vegetables at Archers Farm’s to the fish caught by local fishermen at Gibbs, we have something right here on this Island that is special and that should be nurtured and grown into something wonderful by all.
We believe that fresh is best and its only at its best when is fresh – picked at 12pm on your plate by 7pm – the way it should be.
But don’t just take our word for it, come and try our homemade fettuccine, made from all local ingredients in house by our amazing Head Chef Anife and his lovely team of magicians or our homemade Gnocchi. If beef is your thing, then give our succulent 28-day aged sirloin courtesy of C.O.Williams Farm’s and Boulevard Butchers, Holetown a go, you won’t be disappointed – honest!
One restaurant’s efforts can’t change the island but together with the help of you guys and the wonderful organisation “slowfood” Barbados, we can help raise awareness about how important the change is and ultimately how good the food is when you buy and eat local.
See you soon for some local delicious greatness.
