Family style dining, great food and everyone getting to know one another over a small and intimate dinner. This is proper nostalgia, memories of being back at home with the family, and remembering that often, the food comes 2nd to the people you’re sharing it with. Thankfully, Fetta di Casa compromises on neither at their monthly supper club events.
We were invited to their Christmas dinner, taking place at Kastner & Ovens in Covent Garden where they transform the deli by day, into a supper club on Saturdays.
Proceedings kick off with a non-alcholic aperitif, either a negroni like bitter drink or a sweeter fruity version, both excellent and a great way to get started with your meal. Focaccia are brought out next on platters, with 3 versions that all delighted guests before the first course, a selection of starters are brought out to tables.
Pancetta wrapped chestnuts, ham and fruits, blue cheese and walnut pastries, mushroom and smoked salmon all make an appearance that had guests fervently discussing which were their favourites and asking for recipes from the chef.
The menu does change month to month as it stays seasonal, and nothing shouts Winter more than a huge tray of lasagne, with slightly crispy edges and cheese oozing from the sides. Hands down, one of the best lasagne I’ve ever had. Rich, packed with a deep flavour from the beef and a surprisingly light béchamel all combined into 6 layers of lasagne heaven. Seriously good.
And if that wasn’t enough, up next was a hazelnut tiramisu that demanded me to eat it completely despite being stuffed, then followed by panettone with a marsala spiked zabaglione!
And finally, to cap it all off, homemade limoncello and grappa for the table to spread and pass along. Impossible I think, for anyone to say they weren’t properly fed and watered at this event!
There’s still one December supperclub left on the 17th of December, and would be a perfect way for you to spend your evening with friends, or arrive and make new ones!
