Cucina Rustica's Italian & Sicilian Residency at The King & Co in Clapham

Cucina Rustica, which serves fine Italian and Sicilian dishes, is taking over the kitchen at The King & Co for August 2017, when will hopefully see the weather outside matching the Mediterranean flavours inside the pub.  It's going to be a great mis of 'knife and fork' dishes like  freshly-made Pumpkin Tortellini, and arancini balls, plus more snackable finger food options like bruschettas.  Can't wait!

"Taking over the helm of The King & Co’s kitchen on Monday 7th August will be much-loved popup chef Cucina Rustica, for an extended residency running daily until Sunday 3rd September. Founder Giorgio’s menu is influenced by the flavours of his childhood spent in his Sicilian family’s restaurants as well as the region’s rustic streetfood, and he is committed to sourcing not only the best local London ingredients but also the finest imported Italian produce to give his cooking its authentic taste. Those looking for a light bite with their pint or a feast to share with friends can take their pick from a tempting array of antipasti, including beef and pork Sicilian Meatballs made using Nonna’s trusted recipe, and Arancini Rustica mozzarella risotto balls famous from the team’s previous successful sessions at the Duke’s Head in Highgate and Unwined in Tooting. The “kings of bruschetta” will serve up a daily choice of breads, toasted with olive oil and toppings ranging from spicy nduja and mascarpone, to parma ham and figs drizzled with honey, and bocconcini with tomato salsa. Grande plates like freshly-made Pumpkin Tortellini will also be available and sweet tooths are sure to be satisfied by Cucina Rustica’s Doughnut Gnocchi filled wth molten nutella chocolate.
During the daytime at weekends, pub guests can enjoy inventive twists on breakfast favourites and Sunday lunches prepared by the two kitchen residents. Alongside their acclaimed Bottomless Boozy Brunch, The King & Co now offers a great value Beery Brunch between 12 noon and 4pm on Saturdays, allowing craft beer lovers a bespoke choice of nine thirds from the bar’s extensive keg and cask beer collection to accompany their brunch meal for just £25 per person."
