G & Q - James Golding & Quentin Royles

Monthly Italian Offerings at our Residency @ Bodega in Christchurch, Dorset

"Se tu vuoi che ti ami, fa’ che ti brami."

 For this month's Italian Language meditation, we present: " If you want me to love you, let me crave you."  An apt start to the month bringing us both Valentine's Day & the Lunar New Year/Spring Festival.

Cravings are our bread and butter, or crostini if you please!  For primi/starter we have a winter crowd pleaser, a creamy mushroom risotto with wild porcini garnish.  Our main event is a succulent pork loin with rosemary & garlic throughout.  Our sweet this month gives us a chance to highlight a heritage ingredient, more on this in our socials!  Our cheese offering  will be giving everything; creamy richness from the cheese, a balance of bitter-sweet from the walnuts and a bite of pickled celery to clean it all up.

February "sono qui davanti a te col cuore in mano!" I  stand before you with my heart in my hand.

Bodega and Chad Christian have teamed up to curate this evening's wine pairing, available as a supplement for £20 per person.
