The Dining Club, Cena Sarda

The Dining Club, Cena Sarda

On the second Saturday of the month I host my Cena Sarda. This is a dining club for about 14 guests, always held on a Saturday. Please see my twitter page @CenaSarda for dates and details. My aim is to cook for you a taste of Italy, especially my native Sardinia, trying to use locally sourced products as much as possible.

My Cena Sarda will be the full experience of a traditional Sardinian meal served round a large dining table. From the antipasti of meats and some of my own cheeses right through to the Mirto liqueur and pastries, if you still have room! In between comes pasta dishes from my family’s recipes and perhaps roast suckling pig with delicious crispy crackling served with Mediterranean style vegetables and potatoes. As an alternative, some months I serve my fish menu. This is the same format but each course includes fish, the pasta may be in a fish sauce and the main course fresh fish cooked in my Sardinian style. Of course, if required, I am happy to change anything to suit individual dietary requirements.

Take a look at an example of a previous menu.

All this is served in the relaxed Italian way, there is plenty to eat but the evening is long and as I tell my guests “Slowly slowly…” And, hopefully, you will still have room for a delicious Tiramisu before your coffee.

Please bring your own wine to compliment the meal, we are only too pleased to chill it for you on arrival.

After dessert I will join you for a digestivo & a chat about what you have just eaten, or any other subject, but especially food and wine!

Places are £35 per person, with a £10 deposit.

Buon appetito!
