Celebrate The Ark of Taste
With many of us looking forward to Terra Madre/Salone del Gusto in October in Turin, Italy is on the menu on Thursday 11 September, at Osteria del Tempo Perso, 208 Bruntsfield Place.
The restaurant is the twin of one established 11 years ago in Casalvieri in Lazio by chef/patron Matteo.
The menu will celebrate The Ark of Taste and showcase some of the Presidium products from Italy. There will be a short introduction to The Ark of Taste with a screening of the new Slow Food Foundation’s Ark of Taste video.
A mixed antipasta platter will be followed by a home-made haggis ravioli, then Ballencrieff rare-breed pig served buffet-style with seasonal vegetables. A good selection of Scottish and Italian artisan cheeses will be followed by seasonal Scottish fruit and cream and coffee.
The price for this showcase menu will be £25 per head (£27 with a glass of Prosecco on arrival) paid on the night.
Reservations can be made by contacting Andrew Marsden, Secretary, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
