NONNO BRUNO RICE CAKE
My grandfather recipe, very simple but so rich in flavour and a beautiful soft and grainy texture, with a touch of cinnamon, served with caramelized pear halves poached in chianti red wine.
Great meal and service from Luigi. His communication ahead of time was brilliant, detailing exactly what cooking equipment he needed. The meal itself was very well presented, delicious and enjoyed by everyone.
And the best part? Luigi left the kitchen spotless afterwards so we didn't have to do that washing up! I'd definitely book him again.
