I normally don't do blog shout outs to individual supper clubs but the fabulous Cin Cin (who are normally seen serving delicious Italian antipasti, street food and Prosecco from their charming '72 Fiat van) are hosting their first event. (I was so pleased with how well they did in the South East heats of the Street Food Awards. Not just me that prefers bellinis to burgers and burritos then!)
This September, owner and founder David Toscano will be bringing his inspired vision of Italian food to the pop-up scene by hosting his first supper club at Brighton’s Velo Café. The evening will showcase innovative and inspired takes on Italian classics. And Lord knows we need some decent Italian food in this city!
The menu has been specially crafted to also celebrate the wonderful British produce that is available as summer draws to a close and autumn begins. Working with chef Jamie Halsall (The Dorchester, Launceston Place and Roux at Parliament Square), David is keen to showcase seasonal ingredients in his dishes, which connect with the cured meats and cheeses that he typically serves from the Cin Cin van.
Things will start with a glass of Prosecco or Moretti (who are partnering for this event) along with three antipasti of honey glazed figs with goat’s cheese and late summer truffle, wild boar salami on Music Paper crisp bread with salsa verde, and Balsamic poached pears with melted Taleggio on ciabatta crostini.
The three course menu includes heirloom tomatoes & Burrata served with fresh basil and sherry vinaigrette, guinea fowl saltimbocca on a farro risotto and roasted damsons with zabaglione and crushed amaretti.
As well as Cin Cin’s signature Prosecco, there will also be wine pairings available throughout, to purchase by the glass or bottle, along with Birra Moretti.
Do you see a spag bol? No you DON'T.
