We are delighted to be supporting the House of Peroni once again this year! The pop-up will be returning on the 19th May, and taking place at Proud East. Make sure you come along!
World renowned chef, Francesco Mazzei has been announced as Master of Taste at the residency, and Simone Caporale of the Langham on London, has been announced as Master of Mixology, so expect an explosion of flavour! Just like last year, The London Kitchen team will be supporting these culinary experts to provide one of London’s most delicious summer pop-ups.
Centred on the theme of ‘for the love of Italy’ (Amare l’Italia), the House will be a delectable homage to Italy and the stunning ingredients unique to the country’s rich landscape. An Italian version of the British brunch will be served every Saturday and Sunday between 11am and 3pm, accompanied by acoustic sounds from Italian-inspired bands and a delicious Peroni Nastro Azzurro infused citrus punch. Stand out dishes include Purgatorio (spicy baked eggs with njuda), Gratin di Asparagi (gratin of asparagus with duck eggs and Grana Padano), Mac e Carbonara (mac and cheese carbonara), along with the show-stopping Un Colpo All’Italiana – translated as the ‘Italian Job’ – a delicious Italian take on the full English. All dishes are perfectly accompanied by La Regina Mary (Queen Mary) – a new savoury expression of the traditional Bloody Mary, made with Parma ham.
A pre-bookable private dining event will take place three evenings a week, where guests will be invited to sit together and enjoy a sumptuous Italian feast, inspired by the family gatherings Francesco grew up with in the southern Italian region of Calabria. The feast features his ‘Mezzogiorno’ signature cooking style and includes an impressive array of antipasti dishes, including Battuta di Salmone (a salmon dish, akin to a tartare) and Insalata di Carciofini (artichoke and pea shoot salad). Melt in the mouth, tortellini filled with the softest burratta is followed by liquorice-cured baccala (salt cod) and magnificent roasted lamb. Dessert is a fragrant Crema al Bergamotto (bergamot cream) served with cherries and a selection of handmade pasticcini (fine Italian pastries).
Don’t miss House of Peroni at Proud East this May! We’ll see you there.
