We recently supplied TV presenter, stylist and writer, Gizzi Erskine, with some seafood. This is what she said (we're delighted of course): "Today was a good day. I was sent a package that I feel is safe to say life changing. A superb company called Fish for thought (www.fishforthought.co.uk) have come up with the rather nifty idea of sending spankingly fresh fish straight from the Cornish seas to your front door. Too good to be true I thought, but at midday there was a knock on the door and lo and behold a vast package filled to the brim with the freshest fish I've seen in London!"
A couple of weeks ago we were asked if we could help with some seafood for the now famous Blaggers Banquet.

The freshest fish come cleaned to your preference, off the boat, packed in a box of ice and to your doorstep in no time. They're extremely reasonable with a great variety of seafood, and we're proud to use their fish at School of Wok."
