Pop-Up restaurant at the Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art

Mangia

Event preview

THE ESTORICK Collection of Modern Italian Art will be transformed into a pop-up restaurant for one night only – Tuesday, February 4, 2014 – during the Giorgio de Chirico: Myth and Mystery exhibition.

Visitors will be able to enjoy food from Capo Caccia Fine Foods and Pastificio Mansi, and taste delights from Italy.

Founded by Antonio Arca Casu and Luigi Crobu, Capo Caccia’s passion is promoting Sardinian food. Gastronomic regional staples such as Pecorino cheese and salami sit side by side with lesser-known products such as gluten-free sausages seasoned with gloriously fragrant local fennel, and Bottarga, a wonderful fish roe, which when added to pasta, brings a unique quality to a simple dish.

Pastificio Mansi produce beautiful hand-made fresh pasta. Based in South London, their stalls can be found at local markets. Visitors can expect delights such as squid ink tagliatelle, spinach and ricotta gluten-free gnocchi and pumpkin ravioli. Diners will be treated to regional recipes handed down through generations and made from seasonal locally sourced ingredients.

There will be one sitting at 7pm, served on communal tables in gallery 2. Guests will be able to view the Giorgio de Chirico: Myth and Mystery exhibition which is on view until April 19, 2014.

Price: – £40, wine and aperitivo included. Advance booking only on 020 7704 9522 or curator@estorickcollection.com.
