The LEC Christmas Party! regional Italian food from Apulia and Romagna

Join us for the ultimate LEC Christmas Party! Italian arts meets regional food meets world class wine..

We have found a hidden gem of Italian food, wine and lifestyle showcase in Clerkenwell.

We will be partying, drinking and eating the delicious Apulian food prepared by Silvano Bavia, who is a wonderful Chef, a cheerful host and a keen entertainer.


Highlight of the menu will be homemade orecchiette pasta (a special dish from Puglia, Southern Italy)

Also, the Chef assistant from Romagna, Susy will bake a traditional crusty pizza with mozzarella and a variety of thinly baked crispy pizza.

We will also have plenty of bruschettas options to choose from: home roasted peppers, caramelized onions, wild mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and a delicious pistacchio and pesto topping.

oh... and an Italian salumi plate too..

We will have a Caprese mozzarella dish, as well as crudite' that can accompany an homemade humus/broad beans/lemon and olive oil special Apulian sauce.

..and to top it up, cantuccini biscuits from Tuscany and a mouthwatering Northern Italy typical "tenerina" chocolate cake, which is a specialty from Ferrara, Romagna.

The entry price to be paid in advance is £15 and includes an alcoholic drink.

There will also be a visit to the IT DESIGN showroom with the biggest names of Italian design on show on the same floor as the wine bar, led by the architect and showroom art director Daniele Bedini. Think super modern minimalist design meets Italian classic forms and shapes in a wonderful aesthetic balance that pleases the eye.

It looks like a mini museum of design and it s wonderful to walk around these pieces of beauty when you are a bit tipsy and everything looks so shiny and wonderfully abstract, and you need to loook twice to understand if the object is a chair or a clothes hanger :-) a bit like being a kid in a toy shop again (promised, it s fun)

The all experience looks like a very cosy vernissage party with friends in a cool modern art gallery type of place accompanied by a wild selection of wines and incredible food..

There will be Latino-american music playing and attempts at samba, tango and other hips swinging type of southern dances are welcome, as Silvano is a keen dancer and their parties always end with dancing on the floor till late evening.

This menu is suitable for vegetarians.

Unfortunately there is no option to pay on the day simply because ALL FOOD is home made (including even the roasted peppers who are grilled fresh the same afternoon) so the Chef must predict the exact number.

There is no account number to pay to, just Paypal, for security reasons.

When paying by paypal make sure you transfer £15 (after fees) as sometimes Paypal retain a fee. If you send an incorrect amount, your entry is not guaranteed. It s your responsibility to transfer the right amount.

We will meet at 6pm for a glass of wine (included). Dinner will be served from 7pm onwards.

Now, I am Italian, so I must close this event by mentioning the coffee!! Oh..oh .. just look at their coffee machine.. isn't she a work of art too? :-)) Maja, have you bought my Christmas present yet..? x x x

Happy Christmas everyone and let s enjoy a moment of celebration together with our LEC friends! Look forward to meet all of you at this lovely new Italian venue..
