Returning to the rooftop of Dublin’s Dame Lane from Thursday, May 25th to Sunday, June 4th 2017, the House of Peroni will bring Gusto d’Italia (the flavours of Italy) to life in Dublin.
The food is inspired by the House of Peroni’s trip to Italy earlier this year, where myself and Peroni’s resident food experts immersed ourselves in Italian food, learning about the importance of fresh, seasonal produce with a strong focus on local ingredients. Aoife, chef at Dublin’s Luna and Peroni’s Master of Dolci, has created a unique gelato for the House of Peroni which is ricotta based with flavours of balsamic and ricotta. Having tried the gelato myself, I can guarantee that this will definitely hit the spot for those with a sweet tooth!
Focusing on an authentic Italian food experience, there will be an emphasis on the true flavours of Italy with Neapolitan-style pizza as well as daily fresh pasta specials. Michael Ryan of the famous Dublin Pizza Company has used his visit to Naples as the inspiration for the menu he created for the residency, along with the input from top Italian chef Francesco Mazzei. Michael is passionate about local ingredients which will be the inherent theme of his menu, including fresh, summery ingredients such as rocket, oregano and nduja.
For the complete Italian food experience, there will be a host of exclusive masterclasses led by the House of Peroni’s Italian food experts. Find the schedule below:
