An Italian pizza trend will be brought to London by Gordon Ramsay’s Union Street Café on the 6th of February. Pizzas will be turned into a fine dining experience, with the use of best dough recipes and the finest ingredients.
Taking place during one night only, the six course pizza tasting menu will see the Italian dough expert Matteo Attianese and Davide Degiovanni reuniting for an unforgettable evening, working side by side to create the menu and showcase this popular trend from Italy. La Cascina dei Sapori is one of the top ten best pizza restaurants in Italy for which Matteo Attianese masters the finest dough-making.
Some of the dishes included in the menu are ‘Fritta’, which is a fried pizza dough topped with crudo of tuna, turnip tops, chili, and bergamot, ‘Dal Mare’ with Mediterranean octopus, stracciatella, and ‘Nduja, and ‘Dolce’ with a sweet dough topped with sheep’s ricotta, pistachio, lemon, and chocolate. Each one of them will be served as a small portion, closer to the idea of fine dining than the pizza experience everyone is used to.
Union Street Café is known for its openness to bring the Italian spirit to London and Davide together with his team bring all sides of Italy with them in style and personality, as well as in the way they treat the guests as if they are welcoming a friend into their home and sharing their memories of Italy with them. It is a ‘must go’ for the lovers of food, wine, and conversation; a place to spend quality time in the company of friends and loved ones.
This event is the first of its kind organised at Union Street Café and guests will start their pizza journey in the subterranean Olive Grove bar, before heading to an evening hosted by the chefs. It will take place on Tuesday, the 6th of February, and the six course menu, including the aperitif, costs £35 with an optional £15 for beer pairings.
