MOSHI MOSHI IN JUNE
Celebrating the Oceans in JuneJune 8th is World Ocean's Day - a day that looks to recognise the significance of healthy oceans to the health of the planet and our own well being. Moshi Moshi is supporting two events this month and next that help realise healthier seas. The first is our perennial favourite, Slow Food, to whom we are indebted for finding our answer to truly sustainable fish, and the second the Environmental Justice Foundation, for their tireless efforts to highlight slavery in getting cheap prawns to our dining tables (rest assured no slaves were used in producing ours) and the problems of unregulated and illegal fishing practices.
We have been proud supporters of Slow Food since we first met our wonderful fisherman, Chris Bean, at Slow Food's Terra Madre in 2004. Thanks to Terra Madre, we were introduced to small-scale inshore fishers, who fish with nets that don't damage the seabed, and provide us with fish of exceptional quality. When the boxes arrive, the sweet smell of the sea fills the sushi bar, there is never a hint of fishiness! To celebrate Slow Food and it's achievements in the ecology and people of the seas, we will be donating £1 for every Slow Food dish that you order on Friday June 5th. If you'd like to donate more of course that would be much appreciated. Join us for a Slow Food Fish Friday!
Dishes you can help support Slow Food are:
• Salt & sansho pepper Japanese fish & chips
• Ankimo 'foie gras' of the sea
• Sea-fayre tempura tapas
• Cornish catch of the day ceviche
Celebrating World Oceans Day with the Environmental Justice Foundation
We are teaming up with the Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF) to raise awareness and combat illegal 'pirate' fishing and promote sustainable fisheries globally. We have been firm advocates of demonstrating how the choices we make as a restaurant, and those you make as our co-producer customers, can help protect oceans and keep fish on our menus in the long-term.
We are introducing a new sake menu towards the end of the month and will be hosting a sake tasting evening, pairing the new sakes with sashimi and dishes from our hot menu on Thursday July 9th. Save the date !
That's all from me, but I'd love to hear from you if you have any comments on the menu or a recent experience.
