Sud Forno Weekend Italiano Meal (March 2021)
We are back this week with a new box from Sud Forno's Executive Chef Giovanna Alonzi! This week Giovanna has been dreaming of Italy (haven't we all...) and thought why not curate a few bits and pieces of culinary tradition from all over Italy. From gnocchi alla Sorrentina directly from the Amalfi Coast to schiacciata Toscana from the beautiful countryside of Tuscany, this week's meal box takes us on a gastronomical getaway from region to region. In addition, Giovanna made sure to make it as easy as possible for you to enjoy your meal this weekend with minimal prep and cooking so sit back and relax and enjoy some of the undiscovered wonders of Italian cuisine. So easy in fact that Giovanna has you covered for breakfast the next morning with Spaccio's schiacciata Toscana (be sure to enjoy it with some Nutella and a cappuccino!)
Like always we'll have fresh Sud Forno bread made by our Head Baker Luca Rotatori and we'll end the meal off with mini dolcetti 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!

2019 'Ischia Bianco' DOC, Casa d'Ambra, Campania: Straw yellow, this aromatic white shows a nose of honeysuckle, acacia and sea air followed by a dry, mineral palate alongside yellow apple, pear and sweet corn. Unique yet accessible; a refreshing blend from the steep terraces of Ischia.
2018 'Gricos' Aglianico Del Vulture DOC, Grifalco, Basilicata: Ruby red with earthy aromas and all the charm of the Aglianico grape: mineral notes with floral hints and red berry fruit. Fresh and fruity on the palate; a good acidity lengthens the deep, well-defined finish.
Franciacorta Brut DOCG, Contadi Castaldi, Lombardia: Pale yellow in colour with a fine clarity, this sparkling brut is steady and persistent. The nose is fresh with floral notes, lime, and green pepper, while on the palate the wine is full bodied yet crisp with a lingering finish.
