Food and a six­ties vibe

GREAT FOOD AND SWEET SOUL MU­SIC

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Food and Drink -

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.”
