The team behind two of the area’s most decorated restaurants have launched a new pizza brand.

Oh! Pizza is described as a dynamic pop-up and casual catering concept. In practice, this means they will appear in beer gardens, festivals and events across the county serving their pizza.

The brand has been launched by Matt Willdigg, head chef at Fell Bistro, Alex Blamire, managerial director for Aven and Fell Bistro and Oli Martin, chef director for Aven and Fell Bistro. The team also run the catering company Foray.

“We’ve seen a significant shift in dining preferences over the past year, with food vendor sites like Mackie Mayor in Manchester and Chews Yard in Preston gaining popularity,” the founders said.

“We love what we do in the restaurants and at Foray, and we’re fortunate to have a fantastic team that supports our daily operations, giving us the freedom to explore new projects whilst still being present within the current businesses.

“Oh! Pizza is our way of adding something casual and fun to our brand and is the first of a few projects we have in the pipeline.”

Oh! Pizza pop-up events will be announced soon.

Matt added: “Pizza may seem simple, but beneath its surface lies a true art form that many spend years perfecting.

“As a chef, I’ve always harbored a deep passion for food and the pursuit of new culinary skills. Growing up, pizza was a staple in my life, a dish that’s always been close to my heart.”
