This Saturday (17 February) MasterChef Finalist and head chef at the Italian Embassy, Danilo Cortellini, will be taking his eponymous catering company to West London to create a feast to raise money for mental health charity, A-HEAD London.
Taking place at the Refettorio Felix in West London, the evening will be a celebration of the Italian charity launching in the UK. The dinner will take place from 19:00-22:30 and tickets are £65 pp and are available to buy here.
In addition to all ticket sales being invested in the charity, there will also be a display of artwork for sale. For an extra £20, ticket buyers will also receive a unique, personalised piece of artwork by in-house artist, Katia Fiorentino.
On the menu: Risotto with Braised Radicchio and Provolone Cheese to start, followed by tender Beef Cheek ‘Pizzaiola’ with Olive Oil Potatoes and Green Chicory. And for dessert? Polenta Four and Hazelnut Cake with Chocolate Ganache and Salted Caramel. Delizioso!
A-Head London 2018 aims to raise awareness of the benefits of art therapy on mental health through a programme of eclectic and artful events taking place over a few days. The charity was founded in Rome by Dr Stefania Calapai and Dr Antonella Lo Giudice who have been delivering rehabilitation projects in collaboration with artists, designers and performers since 2009. Patients of the charity are encouraged to create beautiful artworks as a form of therapy. Each piece of art created goes on to be sold, with profits split between the charity and the patients themselves.
