MasterChef Professional finalist Danilo Cortellini is back! Not so much with a bang but with a book would you believe and just in time for Xmas I hear you say. Some say he should have won the final last year, well we do anyway. Danilo was our guest chef last April and so it’s great to have him back. Tonight’s four course gourmet dinner with jazz trio is a special one off to celebrate the launch of his new book titled “4 Grosvenor Square”. Danilo is also the head chef at the Italian Embassy here in London and of course he will be signing books for you to purchase on the night!*!

PLEASE NOTE: £10 GOES TO MUSICIANS = £34 FOR FOUR COURSES + WELCOME DRINK

The Elmore Jam is a diner’s sociable wonderland – Enjoy a cocktail on arrival, followed by a four course meal accompanied by our live jazz trio - very lively indeed.

Tonight The Elmore Jam is back in my house! For some reason you wonderful diners just love looking around my house which you are very welcome and encouraged to do, much like on Through The Key Hole or dare I say Come Dine With Me. We try to keep the skeletons in the closet to a minimum!

YOUR CHEF
After finishing culinary school in Abruzzo, Italy, Danilo travelled around the country working at some of the finest restaurants in the Peninsula. He moved to the UK in 2010 and has since worked with the likes of Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester and at Zafferano in Knightsbridge. In 2012 he attained his current position at the embassy, giving him the opportunity to cook for some of the most influential people in Europe.

A FEW WORDS ABOUT DANILO’S BOOK
The hardback book features authentic Italian dishes using some of the finest produce available. Sample dishes include multi-coloured burrata tortellini with Sicilian red prawns in a smoked artichoke broth, red mullet with stuffed courgette flower and smoked buffalo mozzarella sauce, and a pumpkin panna cotta with apples and mosto cotto.

Danilo says: “I have a few reasons for writing this book now. It is coming to the end of the ambassador’s term and who knows when I will have another opportunity like this to showcase not only my own cooking but Italian products, dishes and the good work that the embassy does.

The book is divided not simply into starters, mains and desserts but into sections based on style of occasion instead. This provides an insight on how Danilo plans his menus at the Italian Embassy, and certain recipes are perfect for particular events.
