GOURMET PIZZA TASTING EVENT AT UNION STREET CAFE
On 6 February 2018 Union Street Café will be creating a six-course pizza menu, showcasing a gourmet pizza trend taking hold in Italy.
The new trend sees fine dining and pizza collide, as bespoke dough recipes are paired with finest ingredients. Italian dough expert, Matteo Attianese, will join Union Street Café Head Chef and old-friend Davide Degiovanni for one night only, to create unique dough bases for Davide’s dishes.
Having first worked together seventeen years ago, Davide Degiovanni and Matteo Attianese are reuniting for an unforgettable evening, serving dishes of ‘Fritta’, fried pizza dough topped with crudo of tuna, turnip tops, chilli and bergamot, ‘Dal Mare’ with Mediterranean octopus, stracciatella and n’duja and Dolce, a sweet dough topped with sheep’s ricotta, pistachio, lemon and chocolate.
Davide and Matteo will welcome guests as if they are welcoming them into their homes as pre-dinner drinks are served in the subterranean Olive Grove Bar. When dinner begins in the restaurant, the two chefs will guide diners through each dish on the menu, immersing them in the world in innovative Italian cuisine.
An unforgettable experience from start to finish, join us for one night only from 7pm on Tuesday 6 February.
Enjoy a six course tasting menu for £35, paired with beer/cider £15.
