We're very excited to see the return of the Cookbook Dinner series this autumn with Angela Hartnett of Murano and Luca Dusi of Passione Vino on Tuesday 13th March 2018.
Angela will be presenting her menu based on Alistair Little's Italian Kitchen, and hosting the evening with Tom Harris and Jon Rotheram. Luca will be developing harmonious wine pairings from independent Italian winemakers to highlight Angela’s signature style.
Angela Hartnett, MBE, is one of the UK’s most loved chefs and restaurateurs, known for her sophisticated yet simple, Italy-inspired cooking. Although she was born in Britain, her passion for good, honest food and the best ingredients was instilled in her by her Italian grandmother and mother.
In 2008, Angela opened Murano in Mayfair, where she is Chef Proprietor, and holds a Michelin star. The restaurant celebrates its 10 year anniversary this year.
In September 2013, Angela launched Merchants Tavern in Shoreditch, in collaboration with Head Chef Neil Borthwick, and Canteen founders, Dominic Lake and Patrick Clayton-Malone. Later that year she opened Cafe Murano, a little sister restaurant to Murano, where she creates the menu with executive chef, Sam Williams. In June 2015 a second Cafe Murano opened on Tavistock Street, Covent Garden.
Working intimately with some of London’s best chefs, Luca has now been importing some of the best artisanal Italian wines into the UK through Passione Vino for more than a decade.
Born in Verona, Italian wine expert Luca Dusi moved to London in 1995. Frustrated by the sameness of the London scene, Luca returned to Italy to find wines with character and ‘wow’ factor. After tirelessly tasting and hunting for unique wines and winemakers, London was calling and Passione Vino released its first portfolio of curated independent wineries in 2003. Over the years, Luca has explored his passion for individual produce working with some of London’s best chefs, most recently launching the Italian Supper Club at Cafe Murano in collaboration Angela Hartnett.
