Excellent Aperitif Friday 9 September at the wonderful “Da Lisa”, the Italian Gastronomia and Enoteca in Gloucester Road.
Blessed with a very warm evening (24 degrees – a rarity for this year crazy Summer), this event had over 180 people attending – not just Italians though, as we had lots of guests coming from many Countries across Europe and the rest of the World.
Everyone was amazed by the sheer quantity – and quality – of stuzzichini that owner Lisa offered during the evening : endless streams of bruschette, frittatine al forno con zucchine e formaggi, arancini (of three varieties : with spinach and cheese, with polpettine and another type with Prosciutto and burro), focacette (with crema di carciofo e sundried tomatos and another type with mortadella e stracchino), sfoglie con mozzarella and spinach ... and so many other delicacies we lost count of (we particularly loved the penne with potatoes, pesto and fagiolini offered later in the evening).
A huge thank you to the exquisite Lisa, owner of the venue, and to her warm hospitality and perfect organisation. And thank you also to all the staff of “Da Lisa”, including the super efficient Monica, the always smiling Alice, the cocktail maverick Tomek and the of course Joanna and Carla.
