Our first lunch in 2013 with the passionate Italian cook, prolific food writer and personality, Ursula Ferrigno, is on Sunday 17th February at the RSJ Restaurant. 

Starting at 1.00pm this event will include a glass of wine on arrival. 

Sunday 17th February ‘Venetian Feast’  £32.00 
Ursula says of Venice: “This unique and enchanting place has such special memories for me as a child and as an adult teaching there. I would love to share with you some of my all time favourite dishes that relive those powerful memories.”

Chick pea and vegetable soup served with golden semolina bread anointed with delicious extra virgin olive oil.

Hand made ravioli with roasted mushrooms in a herb dressing

Fish cakes Venetian style – lightly spiced

Winter salad of roasted roots and spinach

Chocolate cake with orange sauce

Specially selected cheese from the region, served with fruit

 Chop! Chop! Helping and learning from Ursula is always a popular and fun option

We have a few places, strictly limited, for anyone who wishes to assist Ursula during the morning, making bread, pasta soup and sauces associated with these lunches. This will cost each person an additional £30.00 for this cookery tuition.
