Zero waste team dinner

Evening at Silo in Hackney Wick, London

As a team we aim to gather once a month and we always aim to make the most of this opportunity to experience new things and whenever possible align it with our sustainability work. During one of one of our team-building night out we had the pleasure to enjoy a sustainability-focused dinner at Silo in Hackney Wick.

Renowned as a ‘zero waste’ restaurant, Silo takes pride in its circular ethos, eliminating the need for a bin on its premises. This commitment extends beyond just the menu to include furniture, fittings, and an innovative approach to minimising packaging in deliveries.

Our culinary adventure included the unexpected delight of Japanese Knotweed as a starter, a plant we have precious discussed as an invasive species in our client presentations, which was surprisingly delicious! 

The menu also presented ancient fermentation methods, including various types of ‘garum’—a new and intriguing discovery for all of us. One of the restaurant’s chef kindly gave as a behind-the-scenes tour of their impressive fermentation area. With these unique elements, the food proved to be both delicious and creatively presented, sparking lively discussions among our team.

The experience at Silo not only satisfied our palates but also provided valuable insights into the possibilities and creativity within sustainable dining.
