Rye lane in Peckham is on the door step and a great place for spot buying ingredients. It has both market stalls and permanent shops which are used by locals of all nationalities and caterers for a mass of tastes.
I love the freshness of the fruit and vegetables and in particular the herbs – but what stands out is the freshness of some of the fish, which can be fantastic. You have to shop around and pick out what you want. Go for a fish that is clear of eye and red of gill. Buy whole fish and ask the fishmonger to gut and scale them for you

This dish is one we will be using in the bar over the next 2 months when the fish is at it’s best.
