If there is one thing we love abut summer, it’s the pop ups that.. well pop up. And this simmer is no exception.
World famous S.Pellegrino is partnering with two Michelin Starred Chefs – Theo Randall of Theo Randall at The Intercontinental and Phil Howard of The Square – to bring a taste of Italy to the banks of the River Thames in an exclusive, fine dining pop-up experience.
S.Pellegrino which is synonymous with gourmet food culture, will bring a fantastic culinary fusion of Italy-meets-Britain to the capital as Theo and Phil each create a bespoke three-course menu for the Live In Italian, Live from London restaurant. Served across two separate evenings in July, each menu will bring the legendary art and finesse of Italian cuisine to life, using ingredients associated with the British Isles that are characteristic of traditional British fare. Feel your tummy rumbling? Read on.
Following a sparkling reception, guests will feast their eyes on culinary masters Phil and Theo as they give live demonstrations of each sumptuous course within an intimate candlelit setting (I smell Date night). Guests will be encouraged to ask their burning cooking questions whilst they are treated to a three-course meal, perfectly paired with fine Italian wines.
Double Michelin-starred chef and owner of renowned fine dining establishment The Square, Phil Howard, will host the first of two evening events on Friday 3rd July, before award winning Italian chef Theo Randall, of Theo Randall at the Intercontinental, takes over on Saturday 4th July.
For those looking for a more casual fine dining experience, up and coming British Chef Chris Denney, will headline a lunchtime service across both days. Denney has worked in Michelin restaurants across the globe, and with some of the world’s greatest chefs; he is currently Head Chef of contemporary Italian restaurant, Four to Eight, in Covent Garden. Denney will be creating an exclusive lunchtime menu of Italian style tapas fused with British ingredients, which guests can enjoy within a convivial Italian designed alfresco space.
What’s more, Denney will also take to the stage to show off his creations, demonstrating alongside the S.Pellegrino UK & Ireland Young Chef of the Year 2015 winner, Mark Moriarty, as well as runner-up Jamie Coleman.
