A few of the Jellybean team were fortunate enough to receive an invitation to The House of Peroni in London and we jumped at the chance to experience something a little different.
Unsure of what to expect, we arrived at a beautiful town house and it’s safe to say that none of us expected what we were about to experience.
Running for the third time, the house, which is open for just a month, celebrates all things Italian – combining art, fashion and design with bars and a restaurant. The house which is four floors high took 1963, the year of Italy’s Cultural Revolution, as its inspiration.
With space including an optical illusion room, a colour room and the fantastic restaurant on the top floor, the house of Peroni certainly fuelled the senses.
Now let’s talk about the food (my favourite subject), with everything on the menu in Italian, we decided the safest option was to go for the set menu.
First course was an octopus dish! Having never tried octopus before, I caught myself staring at the tentacles on my plate and I’ll be honest, I had to think twice before I took my first bite, but it was absolutely delicious and I love the fact that I can say that I’ve eaten octopus now (it was on my list of foods to try).
Second course was a risotto and squid dish followed by a main, or as the Italians like to call it ‘the secondo’, which was a fantastically tasty joint of lamb. Dessert was simply a delight – a platter of bite size treats including a strawberry cheesecake and my personal favourite, a rum infused sponge cake!
The drink of choice throughout this culinary experience was of course, Peroni.
It was a delightful evening – a heady combination of good food and drink mixed with sensory art and topped with great company! What more could you want.
