Be transported to Northern Italy as renowned chef Theo Randall launches a new regional tasting menu celebrating the flavours of the Emilia-Romagna region. Bringing the rich gastronomy of Italy to the heart of Mayfair, the limited-edition menu utilises the best seasonal produce while showcasing traditional Italian cooking in hearty and beautifully presented dishes.
Available throughout January at acclaimed restaurant, Theo Randall at the InterContinental, guests will be taken on a trip across the region, from Parma and Bologna to Ferrara and Ravenna, with a four-course tasting menu and paired wines, priced at £70 per person.
The menu starts in Langhirano, known as Food Valley and home of Parma ham, with Prosciutto di Parma, marinated artichokes, buffalo mozzarella and fried pastry. Follow with a visit to Bologna for a plate of Pasta Balanzoni, green pasta parcels filled with spinach, ricotta, marjoram with butter and Parmesan, before enjoying a main showcasing ingredients closely associated with the region in the form of Bistecca di Controfiletto alla Griglia – grilled sirloin steak with aged balsamic vinegar, wild rocket and Parmesan. The expertly curated four-course dinner finishes with a traditional Torta Barozzi, a decadent chocolate, coffee, rum and almond cake with coffee gelato and hazelnut croquant. The first three courses are accompanied by an optional regional wine-pairing, meticulously selected to complement each dish’s flavour.
The limited-edition menu is part of Theo’s tasting menu series, inspired by his travels across Italy and created from memories of his favourite regions. The monthly-changing menu is designed to share the heritage of Italy, showcasing its well-loved dishes where authentic ingredients are the star.
Running until 28th January, the Emilia-Romagna tasting menu is available for lunch Tuesday to Friday and for dinner from Tuesday to Saturday.
