I headed along this evening from 5.30 tilΒ 7 or so and while the crowds weren’t too huge when we attended, it was early on in the proceedings and the event has the potential to be an enjoyable and lively affair. There’s cooking demos and musical entertainment too!

We really enjoyed the dishes we’d tried. My favourite was actually a freshly made pasta dish with a bean soup. It didn’t look pretty but the taste was completely delicious! I also liked the arancini and the Italian white I tried was a lovely drop! So if you are looking for something to do tomorrow and don’t fancy cooking dinner, then head along to Maurizio’s from 4 and you’ll be able to try a range of tasty Italian fare.

  1. Will have to schedule in a visit to these food stalls. My fiance and I went to a degustation at Maurizio’s a few years ago. It featured the local cuisine of an area of Italy we had holidayed in. It was spot on to the local flavour. True Italian cooking. I highly recommend.

    1. Do you know what region’s dinner you went to? I’ve been eying off the list but wasn’t sure which one to try πŸ™‚ they had some tasty food last night when we called in. Hopefully they got a few extra numbers later on πŸ™‚
