Saturday, 5th October – Italian Cuisine

Ciao Bella, Beautiful Italian Cuisine

  

Saturday, 5th October - Italian Cuisine


Think traditional Italian food, think doughy pizzas, gooey pastas and fragrant sauces. Meals are often seen as a time to spend with family and friends, rather than simply for sustenance - why not book for the whole family?


£35.00 PER PERSON - SPECIAL RATES AVAILABLE FOR LOCALS AND GROUPS


Traditionally, meals in Italy typically contained four or five courses, consumed slowly with the emphasis on quality time, especially on weekends; thus, meals tend to be longer than in other cultures. During holidays such as Christmas and New Year's Eve, feasts can last for hours. 


Today, the traditional Italian menu is kept mainly for special events (such as weddings) while an everyday menu includes only the first and/or second course, the side dish, and coffee. A notable aspect of Italian meals is that the primo or first course is usually a more filling dish such as risotto or pasta. Italian cuisine also includes single courses (all-in-one courses), providing carbohydrates and proteins at the same time (e.g. pasta and legumes).


Pizza and pasta dishes such as spaghetti bolognaise and lasagne with bolognaise ragù and béchamel sauce are the most popular forms of Italian food in British, notably, English, cuisine.

ABOUT THE FESTIVITY


‘Tafelspitz’ is the Austrian national meal consisting of boiled beef, bone, and vegetables. In Europe, it is more common to eat the meal in courses, simply as a broth, followed by thinly sliced beef and importantly the traditional sides. The variety of side dishes used to include mashed potato, deep-fried cauliflower or even macaroni. Today, the so-called ‘classics’ have prevailed: apple horseradish, chive sauce, horseradish bread sauce, green beans with dill, romaine lettuce with peas, cream spinach, cream kohlrabi, pumpkin, as well as roasted potatoes, potatoes au gratin or bouillon potatoes.


Created in Vienna in the late 18th century, Tafelspitz is said to have come into existence because of Emperor Franz Joseph I. Since guests dining with the emperor were not served before him and could not eat after he was finished, they had little time to eat their meals. To solve this problem, chefs created a filling meal that was able to be served quickly. Tafelspitz is cooked in a large pot, water and seasoning are added, then the meat is slowly boiled for 2-3 hours, before the root vegetables are added before continuing the slow-cook process, creating a broth. The soup is then eaten first from the pot, with the meat and vegetables as the second course with extra accompaniments; all served with family and friends in mind, per table.


Tafelspitz is definitely a unique meal which is very popular in Austria – come and try it!

ABOUT THE FESTIVITY


La Tomatina is a food fight festival held on the last Wednesday of August each year in the town of Buňol, near to Valencia in Spain. Thousands of people visit from all corners of the globe to fight in this ‘World’s Biggest Food Fight’ where more than one hundred metric tons of over-ripe tomatoes are thrown in the streets. Prior to 2013 anywhere from 40,000 to 50,000 people crammed into Buňol’s normal 9,000 person population. Since 2013 official ticketing has been in place. In preparation for the dirty mess that will ensue, shopkeepers use huge plastic covers on their storefronts in order to protect them from the carnage.

Now we are not suggesting that our evening will be messy, end in carnage or that busy – but we will commit to having a fun, typical Spanish evening.

Spanish mealtimes are confusing, Spaniards are many things, but early risers is not one of them! Consequently their meal times are about 2-3 hours after the average British dining times – Desayuno (Breakfast) 7-9am, Alumuero (Mid-morning snack) 10.30-11am, La Comida (Lunch) 2-3.30pm, Merienda (Mid-afternoon snack) 5.30-7.30pm, La hora del aperitivo (Tapas hour) 8.30-10pm and La Cena (Dinner) 9-11pm!

However their food is a world of culinary delight and we will combine the best to create our Spanish themed menu, celebrating La Tomatina Day!
