Forza Win(ter), returns on Halloween for a regular Thursday - Saturday in E2, in the same venue as CUTS occupied in the summer. Last winter it was all about fondue, but this year it's going to be a 4 course dinner including some of the Ginger Pig's best pork shoulder, roasted over wood, enjoyed in a fun setting (as with the Forza Win summer pizza restaurant). It's only on for 3 days a week, and it's limited numbers, so don't miss out. Booking opens on 28th October.
"Forza Win(ter) is back. It’s dropped the cheese, got four walls and created a completely woodfired kitchen…
Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday throughout November and December 2013 a disused pickle factory in Hackney will play host to a traditional, communal, Italian Winter feast. Hot on the heels of a successful summer collaboration with the Ginger Pig, Forza Winter will have Porchetta at it’s core. Cooked outdoors (come rain or shine) over Kentish Oak, this is no ordinary Pork. Continuing the relationship with the Ginger Pig, they’ll be serving an otherwise unavailable shoulder from a slightly younger rarebreed pig, alongside 3 other courses of minestrone, pigs head salad and figs with smoked ricotta to finish.
Drinks wise – a hot cocktail bar complete with Italian punch, hot spiced beer and mulled port and pomegranate will help customers ward off the cold. To accompany such a special winter menu, come a very specially selected small grower wine list replete with fizzy reds, orange wines and wine in a box that’s actually really, really good.
Minestrone soup with a basil pesto
