When some of our Italian friends from Sicily mentioned to us the opportunity to have some fresh fish and vongole (clams) flown all the way from Palerno, we thought this was an opportunity not to miss! A few weeks later and here we are with the Aperitif Marinaro, in a - most appropriately - Sicilian venue, "Pizza Rico" in the heart of Covent Garden
What a great event it was! Clams, Mussels, Seabass and even Lobsters had just arrived at the venue, 4 hours before, straight from Palermo fish market- most of the fish was still alive!
And then the Aperitif started, with our guest waiting for the "spaghetti alle vongole" appetisers being prepared rigiht before their eyes...well, the wait was well worth it!
As always at our events. we had also many friends from all Europe and beyond, including Japan, France, Thailand, Austria, Spain and...even Wales!! A big welcome to the many Italians who joined us for the first time, and to all the aficionados who never miss our legendary Aperitifs!
A great thank you to Victor and to all the exquisite staff of Pizza Rico.
