The Moretti Gran Tour – the festival celebrating authentic Italian cuisine and culture is returning to the capital this summer, except this year it’s bigger and better. Visitors to the pop-up in Brick Lane, East London will as always be invited to experience a culinary tour of Italy’s regions, with ten street food vendors serving traditional Italian delights from midday until late.
New additions to the food festival include a fresh Italian food market stocked with regional produce and a personalised dining experience where you’ll learn the intricacies of Italian cooking as dishes are cooked in front of you.
We had an absolute blast in the previous years and this year is even better as you dont even need a ticket, just head down to the festival and get involved in some of Italy’s best!
Tuscan Butchery Masterclass
An exciting new addition to the Moretti Gran Tour is an exclusive recreation of a traditional Tuscan Butcher shop experience, hosted by critically acclaimed Peckham-based Forza Win. The experience is designed to teach guests about the basics of butchery, the craft of cooking and the enjoyment of eating, all paired with a Birra Moretti. Each session can be booked either online at www.birramoretti.com/
Pasta Making Masterclass
Those visitors looking for a more hands-on experience at this year’s Moretti Gran Tour are invited to attend a Pasta Making Masterclass. Each day, Brighton’s CinCin will teach guests how to recreate one of four pasta dishes from scratch whilst enjoying a Birra Moretti paired to that dish. Each session can be booked either online at www.birramoretti.com/
Another new instalment this year is a traditional Italian market where inspired guests can purchase the very best fresh Italian ingredients in order to relive the aromas and flavours of the Moretti Gran Tour at home.
