The 2014 House of Peroni opens in Lincoln'sInn Fields on 2nd of May, to run the entire month. The House will bring the new wave of Italian creative talent from the worlds of food, drink, fashion and design to the capital, inspired by 1963; a transformative year when Italian style became renowned across the world and the year that Carlo Peroni created Peroni Nastro Azzurro.
"Guests are invited to explore four floors featuring specially-commissioned artworks by Italian designers, artists and architects and to relax at one of three beautifully designed bars offering exciting infused drinks.
The House will also feature a stunning third floor restaurant, where guests can taste the evolution of Italian food with a bespoke menu by culinary collective Bottega Wapping, as well as a convivial terrace with an outdoor bar serving Peroni Nastro Azzurro and a bespoke drinks menu by the resident mixologist.
Throughout the month, The House will feature an exciting weekly schedule of stylish Italian events which will include:
Dining in Multicolour: Inspired by the explosion in colour photography of 1963 - the year Polaroid began manufacturing colour film - this unique dining experience is a sensory extravaganza of stimulating flavour and colour. The entire room, right down to the cutlery, will be a dizzying rainbow of multicolour and will form the backdrop to an equally colourful feast prepared by The House of Peroni’s resident chefs Bottega Wapping, whose inspiration for the menu derives from the Red Green Blue model of colour used in photography and electronic systems.
The Art of Gelato: Discover the surprising history of Italian dessert, Gelato, in this artisan-led masterclass. From the ancient sorbettiera to the latest machine technology, the makers of GINO Gelato will teach you all there is to know about the famed frozen dessert. Put your newly learned skills to work as you create some of your own and take the chance to taste innovative flavours including Olive Oil & Parmesan, and Tiramisu.
Italian Brunch Club: Enjoy a leisurely brunch at The House of Peroni on Saturdays. Taste classic Italian dishes reworked with a modern twist, such as the Uova alla Napoletana or traditional baked eggs cooked with ham, stracchino, spring onions and paprika, while sipping a selection of innovative Peroni Nastro Azzurro infused drinks. While you relax with friends, you’ll be entertained by a hand-picked selection of live bands and DJs.
Alfresco Feast & Italo-beats: Experience premium Italian street food vendors combining the best of fine dining with a laid-back street food approach on the beautiful terrace at The House of Peroni in associated with Urban Food Fest. A selection of DJs will provide backdrop of remixed classic Italian beats. Don’t miss your chance to try dishes such as nettle gnocchi with blue cheese sauce and osso buco or braised veal shank richly seasoned in herbs.
Modern Vintage: Create Your Own Silk Scarf: Inspired by the timeless chic of Sophia Loren, this design masterclass looks back at the history of the Italian printed silk scarf, the designers that popularised it, and the women that made them iconic culminating in guests creating their own 100% silk crepe de chine scarf with a bespoke design.
Become an Italian Barista: The House of Peroni, in association with Lavazza, will deliver this authentic Italian coffee experience where guests will learn the origins of coffee and enjoy a tasting session with different beans and blends covering all the classics from velvety cappuccinos to intense espressos."
