LUPO LUNCH CLUB - NOVEMBRE 2019
We have been looking forward to sharing this month's Lunch Club menu with you. Although I love the heat of the summer, autumn is my favourite season. For me this time of year is when we have our greatest flavours - all the fruit and veg that soaked up the sun for months on end are now ready to eat, and dishes are packed with texture, comfort and warmth. I do hope you enjoy the menu we have out together for you.
LUNCH CLUB MENU – 23 November 2019
Carciofi alla romana with potatoes
A classic dish from my home city of Rome. Artichoke hearts rubbed in lemon then slowly cooked on the hob with potatoes*, pecorino white wine, garlic* and fresh mint*. Served warm with home-made focaccia for scarpetta (shoe for cleaning the plate).
Pizzette di polenta
Fried polenta disk topped with home-made cherry tomato sauce and melted buffalo mozzarella and fresh basil*.
Lasagna with radicchio, home-made chestnut paste, mountain speck ham, bechamel and Parmesan cheese. Served with leaves and cherry tomatoes.
Oven-baked gnocchi alla Romana
Italian comfort food at it’s best. Home-made semolina gnocchi (discs) oven-baked with Roman pecorino and butter. Traditionally eaten on a Thursday (you can ask us why when you come for lunch ; ). Topped with EVO and grated pecorino.
Crostata con pirra, ricotta e cacoa
Crostata tart filled with thinly sliced sweet pears, light ricotta cheese and a touch of bitter cocoa. Topped with chocolate chips.
