We welcomed Winchester based Chef, Sergio Mitrano, who is an enthusiastic Italian cook into our showroom to share his menu that celebrated traditional Sicilian flavours on a cold evening in January.
Guests were able to shake off some winter blues and imagine themselves sat in a warm evening in Sicily later in the year!
Speaking of the evening, Sergio said: "With all my knowledge of the different regions of Italy and my catering experience, I was delighted to be able to share my Sicilian menu for this special dining event at The Myers Touch studio. I hope I was able to showcase the finest ingredients and specially chosen wines and bring a taste of Italy to Winchester."
