Benvenuti a Cocomero! – Welcome to Cocomero!
Celebrity Chef, Gennaro Contaldo’s verdict on Cocomero’s porchetta?
“The best porchetta this side of Rome!”
Celebrity chef, Gennaro Contaldo, Jamie Oliver’s mentor and co-star of BBC 2’s ‘Two Greedy Italians’, enjoyed a Cocomero porchetta focaccia sandwich at the Appetite Festival launch in June 2013.
Cocomero (watermelon in Italian) is a new Italian catering service run by me, Silvana Gambini, specialising in Italian food – well known classics alongside lesser known regional specialities. All food is authentic, made from quality ingredients and homemade – or to use the correct lingo ‘casareccia‘!
As Cocomero, I will be running monthly supper clubs in my home in the heart of Walthamstow Village, as well as running food stalls and pop up cafes at selected markets and delivering other pop-up events. In 2015, I’ll be providing an Italian catering service for dinner parties, events and celebrations too!
This will be a 6 course guaranteed meat, fish, eggs, dairy and honey free zone with no headache about what you can and can’t eat! MENU PUBLISHED & BOOKING NOW OPEN
- Sunday 21st September 2014 at the Food Fair Market at the Warrant Officer Pub.
Cocomero officially launched in June 2014 with two very successful and well received ‘Art on a Plate’ supper clubs as part of the Appetite strand of the 10th E17 Art Trail. The supper club menu had an art history/art inspiration theme and focused on bright colours and robust Italian flavours. How did these special launch events go?
