We're visiting Umbria for next week's regional dinner on Tuesday 24th April. With borders to Tuscany, Lazio and Le Marche, this region is known as Italy's "green heart" with plentiful medieval hill towns, dense forests, fast flowing rivers, rolling hills and of course some truly fantastic local cuisine.
It's been a real pleasure to create this menu with so much wonderful produce to choose from - we've got green beans from the Trasimeno lakeside, Alamy wild boar in the parpadelle, beautiful pork for the salami, plus some superb local tomatoes - for a spicy sauce to dress the "strangled Priest" pasta with and to cook with as the base for our Umbrian freshwater fish stew.
We really like the sound of "Drunken hen" as a main course and then we've got some wonderfully named desserts including "Nun's biscuits" and PINK cake to finish.
As always the dinner is £28 per person and includes all anti-pasti and desserts to share across your table. You can book in groups of all sizes which includes our large sharing table seating up to 20 people at no extra cost.
Dinner starts from 6pm with bookings available until late. To make a booking please call us on 020 7249 9081, visit our website or click HERE
