It'll be the festival's first ever ‘Suburbia Meets City’ Neapolitan banquet.
Among the many exciting things lined up for this year’s Festa Italiana, they’ll also be hosting their first ever ‘Suburbia Meets City’ banquet, designed to showcase the finest Italian food, created live by two of the region’s most talented chefs.
Taking place on Saturday 27th July in the Festa Marquee, the special Neapolitan banquet will see the talents of two of Greater Manchester’s most renowned Italian chefs; Francesco Scafuri from Tre Ciccio, and Maurizio Cecco owner of Salvi’s as they showcase their skills and knowledge, as well as providing anecdotes, extraordinary, authentic food and great conversation.
Both Maurizio and Fran hail from around Naples, part of the Campania region of Italy – an area known for producing some for the finest food that the world has to offer from the most exquisite Buffalo Mozzarella to the best pizza on the globe.
Neapolitan cuisine is based around incredible ingredients treated simply and with respect to produce truly stunning dishes.
The chefs will create two dishes each to create a four-course banquet via a spectacular live cooking extravaganza.
There’ll also be Neapolitan music courtesy of a fantastic live band flown over especially from Naples for the occasion. The Festa Marquee will be dressed for a beautiful, rustic banquet and the chefs take diners on a truly authentic Neapolitan journey.
Guests will be seated communally and will be hear from both chefs throughout the night- they will be encouraged to explore and discuss their favourite cooking styles as city slicker Maurizio and suburban sweet heart Fran compete for the crown of King of Neapolitan Cuisine!
This is a one-off opportunity to experience the cooking of two of our region’s most talented chefs as they collaborate in a very special setting for the first time.
