What better way to start our Food Talks – An Evening with… than with Russell Norman.  We have had to delay this event due to the opening of his new restaurant in London – Trattoria Brutto in Smithfield but the November date is set in stone.

We have all decided now that all profits from this event will go to Oxford Food Bank and Waste2Taste.

A leading London restaurateur for the last 20 years he has worked in many of London’s landmark restaurants as a waiter, bartender, maître d’, general manager and operations director.  He is also an author and contributing editor for Esquire magazine and writes a monthly column as ‘The Accidental Cook’.

We have planned an evening of fabulous food, wine and chat – food cooked by Russell with a helping hand from Ursula who will also be interviewing Russell – you too will have the chance to ask away.  All the dishes that Russell will prepare have stories behind each connecting them back to Venice.

Close your eyes and be transported (we all need that right now!)  to the backstreets of Venice – your evening meal will consist of the following dishes along with several ombra glasses of Prosecco!

Grilled fennel & white anchovy skewers
Bigoli in salsa
Fig, prosciutto & mint crostini
Broad bean & ricotta bruschetta

Please note that we are not able to cater for any special dietary requirements on this event.

A HUGE thank you to Ben & Ben at Arbequina for letting us use your wonderful space. This is a first for Oxford and I hope not the last!

See you all in November – we can’t wait!

(Unfortunately we can’t accept our gift vouchers against this event, thank you.
