Sud Forno Easter Meal (April 2021)
Happy Easter! We know how important it is to celebrate Easter with good people and good food so Sud Forno’s Executive Chef Giovanna Alonzi has prepared a traditional Italian Easter feast for you and your family to enjoy this weekend!
Like always we'll have fresh Sud Forno bread made by our Head Baker Luca Rotatori and we'll end the meal off with a traditional pastiera Napoletana from our Executive Pastry Chef Armando Palmieri.
Choose the multi-course meal on its own or pair it with a selection of wines from our wine agency Cavinona!

Pastiera: Ready to serve.
2016 Spumante Brut Rosé, Carvinea: Softly sparkling with fine and persistent perlage. The colour is an onion peel pink with copper hints. The aromas are complex, dominated by fruity and flowery notes, enriched with pleasant hints of bread crust. It expresses unique elegance, pleasant freshness and the smoothness of the bubble.
2018 Montefalco Rosso DOC, Antonelli: Ruby red in colour, olfactory impact is intense and fruity with hints of cherry and wild berries. On the palate it is dry, balanced and well structured. The freshness provided by the Sangiovese makes this a wine that can be consumed immediately, and will continue to age in the bottle for several years.
2018 San Nicoló Etna Rosso DOC, Vini Biondi: This luminous, ruby coloured wine opens with a lovely bouquet of violet, rose, new leather, woodland berry and baking spice. The bright palate is loaded with finesse and smooth tannins, delivering crushed red cherry and wild strawberry accented by clove and cinnamon. From ungrafted vines found on the hills of a crater, 1000 bottles made.
Our homemade Colomba Artigianale Classica (traditional Italian artisanal Easter cake) is made with flours from a small mill in the Marche region of Italy with fresh free-range eggs, butter, vanilla beans and NO PRESERVATIVES of any kind.
We make our colomba with mother yeast and allow each loaf to leaven over a period of 36 hours enabling all of its flavours to mature and bind slowly. The result is a sweet buttery, fragrant Easter offering.
Fun fact: traditionally, the bread is shaped like a flying dove to represent peace and resurrection.
