Bergamo members especially want to savour it with British Food.
On Friday June 3 and Saturday June 4 Slow Food London is being visited by the Bergamo branch in Italy. They want to meet up with London Slow Food members and friends. Put the dates in the diary.
They're equally enthusiastic about British Real Ale – its provenance, brewing and wonderful taste. We've planned two Ale-related events for the Bergamo visitors.
A British Beer and Food Matching Meal at the Dispensary Pub in Aldgate Friday June 3.
A visit to London’s most exciting and environmentally-committed new Brewery, Redemption in Tottenham SaturdayJune 4.
British Real Ale with Food Friday June 3 19:00
4 authentic Brit courses:
Savoury Welsh Rarebit with a citric and tangy Golden Ale
Sauced Devilled Chicken Livers and frisee salad with a biscuit and hoppy Pale Ale
Succulent Wild Boar and Apple Sausages with a malt-laden and raisiny Best Bitter
Scrumptious Bread and Butter Pudding with a fruity and vinous Porter.
The powerful different characters of these Beers demonstrate why we’re now witnessing a Real Ale Renaissance that’s brought the Italians to us. Commentary will be given by by Bill Green, Slow Food London Committee Member, former Publican and Beer Writer, and Raconteur.
