OK, so you know I love Gin, well, Hoff is similarly obsessed with Beer. Different types of Ale and Beer are always the staple of his presents as I know it's a winner. So when Multi-award winning beer brand Menabrea sent me this press release I got really excited because they have partnered with esteemed chef Antonio Favuzzi to celebrate its UK roll out. He will be bringing together the best in Italian flavour with mouth-watering beer pairings and cooking demonstrations. I mean, I love food, he loves beer and food... this is a WINNING combo!
Brewed in the Piedmont town of Biella at the foothills of the Italian Alps, Menabrea is well known throughout Italy, especially in its Northern heartland. Despite being produced in Italy’s oldest continuously operating brewery, this partnership marks the beer’s first significant UK distribution.
Menabrea is pairing with Antonio Favuzzi and his flagship London restaurant L’Anima to celebrate shared values – namely a passion for bringing genuinely artisan Italian food and drink to the UK. Favuzzi will also lead exclusive dining events with Menabrea in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Manchester and London this summer.
Favuzzi started his cooking journey as a child in Sardinia, where he was influenced by the Southern Italian cooking styles of his Sicilian mother and Puglian father. He began his professional career working at prestigious establishments in Sardinia and Milan before moving to London in 2003. He opened the widely acclaimed L’Anima restaurant in 2008, where he helped create a high-end menu reflective of Moorish cuisine. The chef made the decision to partner with Menabrea thanks to his love of the beer’s flavour profile, which matches superbly with his food.
