In celebration of the new S.Pellegrino Itineraries of Taste – a series of comprehensive city guides – the Italian drinks company will collaborate with five chefs for a series of evening banquets.
Over the course of 10 weeks, these Itineraries of Taste banquets will take place at Harvey Nichols department stores in both London and Edinburgh. Until September, diners are able to sample creative menus from the critically acclaimed chefs involved, showcasing each of their own ‘culinary journeys into the world of gastronomy.’ The five chefs offering Itineraries of Taste menus include Claude Bosi of Bibendum; Chris Denney of 108 Garage; Lee Westcott of Typing Room; Marianne Lumb of Marianne; and Elizabeth Allen of Pidgin.
For the events, S.Pellegrino, the ambassador of Italian culture and style – synonymous with fine dining – will transform the Harvey Nichols Terraces into Italian piazzas, capturing the convivial nature of Italian cuisine as guests are able to discover how to ‘live life in good taste’. In addition to the banquets, guests will be able to dine from a bespoke menu created by Harvey Nichols chefs on each day of the residency. The menu will offer a range of typical Italian delicacies, served with a complimentary bottle of S.Pellegrino.
Tickets for the banquets are priced at £40 and include one welcome cocktail and a four-course dinner. Additional drinks can be purchased on the night. Tickets are strictly limited, available from billetto.co.uk. The full line up of London banquets can be found below.
