Siciliano Dinner – Summer Edition

Celebrating Siciliano at Mister Bianco.  Mister Bianco in Kew will host its first Siciliano

Dinner on 23rd February, with this inaugural event being the Summer Edition. This five-course degustation dinner will celebrate owner/chef Joe Vargetto’s cookbook Siciliano, allowing guests to eat dishes held within the black cover.

Siciliano is a collection of contemporary Sicilian dishes inspired by Joe’s heritage and upbringing and the Summer Edition event will take diners through a journey of flavours as the beautifully photographed courses from the book come to life. Each dish is accompanied by a matched wine from Paul Scorpo.

Displayed will be works by artist Lisa Roet, highlighting the unique labels of Scorpo wines on which her art appears. Their collaborations will be served with the Bestia and Noirien wines during the dinner.

The previous pandemic restrictions meant there was no big event or celebratory dinner for customers upon the release of Siciliano in November, so Joe decided to create a seasonal series of dinners from the book through 2021 for everyone to enjoy.
