Food and a sixties vibe
GREAT FOOD AND SWEET SOUL MUSIC
There will be food and sweet soul music on the menu when Peterborough’s newest restaurant opens on Saturday. The Pizza Parlour & Music Cafe on Cowgate, with Andy Rowan running front of house, promises a real sixties vibe, with retro music from the decade and the decor - including an iconic Vespa scooter - adding to the atmosphere.
But it is the authentic Italian cooking that they hope will stand out with a wood-fired pizza oven creating quicker pizzas with better texture and flavour, not to men- tion the traditionally made sauce for the pasta dishes.
Head chef is 28-yearold Andrew Tedder, who has worked at La Tasca in Kingston upon Thames, Yo Sushi in London, as well as three years at Fratelli in Castor and a spell at The Bull Hotel.
“I cannot wait to get started, we have been preparing the venue for a number of weeks and finalising our menu,” he said. “Our emphasis is on authenticity; we make our own dough twice daily, our own sauces handed down through generations and will not allow a pre-made chip anywhere near our restaurant. We have a great team in the kitchen, front of house and in the business, and we genuinely believe we are bringing something new to the city.”
