The Food & Wine Mercato begins the New Year featuring ‘The North’ – cuisine from the northern parts of Italy that is renowned across the world for its rich and hearty dishes that showcase some of the highest quality ingredients. ‘The North’ at Bene Food & Wine Mercato will feature dishes that reflect the northern Italian landscape – mountainous terrain at the foot of the Alps with green pastures ideal for cattle grazing and a focus on dairy. Northern Italy is home to some of the best cheeses in the world which is reflected in many of the northern Italian dishes being featured at the Mercato.
In January, diners can enjoy canederli con burro e salvia – bread and pancetta dumplings served with butter sage and parmigiano, as well as crespelle alla valdostana – baked crepes stuffed with fontina cheese, ham and mushrooms.
