The House of Peroni Residency will open its doors again this May in London. Centred on the theme of ‘for the love of Italy’ (Amare l’Italia), the House will be a homage to Italy and the ingredients unique to the country.
Francesco Mazzei (Chef Patron of Sartoria in Mayfair and previously of L’Anima, London) is the Master of Taste for this Residency, creating a menu of Italian dishes. Open to all, guests will be able to enjoy handmade gelato, wood-fired pizza, freshly made pasta and a selection of Italian antipasti. For the first time The House of Peroni Residency will have a fully stocked Italian deli, selling the best Italian cured meats, cheeses, pasta and sauces to be consumed on site or to take home
An Italian version of the British brunch will be served every Saturday and Sunday between 11am and 3pm, accompanied by acoustic sounds from Italian-inspired bands and a Peroni Nastro Azzurro infused citrus punch. Dishes include Purgatorio (spicy baked eggs with njuda), Gratin di Asparagi (gratin of asparagus with duck eggs and Grana Padano), Mac e Carbonara (mac and cheese carbonara), along with Un Colpo All'Italiana – translated as the ‘Italian Job’ – an Italian take on the full English. All dishes are accompanied by La Regina Mary (Queen Mary) – a new expression of the traditional Bloody Mary, made with Parma ham.
A pre-bookable private dining event will take place three evenings a week, where guests will be invited to sit together and enjoy a sumptuous Italian feast, inspired by the family gatherings Francesco grew up with in the southern Italian region of Calabria.
The feast features his ‘Mezzogiorno’ signature cooking style and includes an array of antipasti dishes, including Salame all'Anatra (home cured duck salami with cherries), Battuta di Salmone (a salmon dish, akin to a tartare) and Insalata di Carciofini (artichoke and pea shoot salad).
Tortellini filled with burratta is followed by liquorice-cured baccala (salt cod) and roasted lamb. Dessert is a Crema al Bergamotto (bergamot cream) served with cherries and a selection of handmade pasticcini (fine Italian pastries).
Simone Caporale returns to The House of Peroni for the second year running as the Master of Mixology and has created a menu of Peroni Nastro Azzurro infused drinks reinvigorating Italian classics, such as the Aperol Spritz served with orange sorbet and a green olive, and the Negroni, which will be served five ways from a dedicated bar.
