Patridges, Slow Food London and Emilia Ltd invite you to taste an incredible selection of Italy's most loved artisanal products. The chair of Slow Food London, Shane Holland, is also speaking.
On the night expect a range of:
Organic Parmesan: the king of Italian products. A style of cheese that speaks for itself and famous world-over. The Parmesan to be tasted is one of the very best examples.
Bruna Alpina Parmesan Cheese: an astonishingly good Parmesan but made only with milk from the Bruna Alpina cow. The milk imparts an even richer flavour with herbal notes in the cheese.
Formaggio di Fossa (Pecorino Cheese): a very traditional sheep (ewe's) cheese, seasoned for 3 months in the Fossa, Fosse are subterranean holes that occur naturally in the landscape in the areas where the cheese is made, and they are the source of Pecorino di Fossa’s complex flavour and aroma.
Vaccino Cheese in Beeswax: A richly flavoured cow's milk cheese, sealed with bees wax to preserve the moisture and the incredible quality of the cheese.
Mora Romagnola ham: Only the very best animals of this ancient breed ever become hams, which in turn are cured for at least 2 years. It has an intense aroma and a long-lasting, delicate, yet savoury taste, with a smoky after-taste.
The tasting will be paired with:
Prosecco White Wine
San Giovese Organic Red wine
Incredibly, each ticket holder will be entered into a draw to win a trip to Italy for themselves and a guest, to meet some of the artisanal producers in Emilia Romagna. The draw is kindly sponsored by Emilia Ltd.
