I’m just back from an al fresco lunch at Islington Green where I made my own pizza and had a free small beer. The freebie treat came compliments of Birra Moretti. Helping me out with the small group who’d assembled for this “Pizza in the Piazza” masterclass, was Italian chef and restauranteur GianCarlo Caldessi (Caffe Caldessi, La Cuchina Caldessi, Caldessi in Campagna). It was a fun, entertaining and even a little educational way to spend a bit of time. And getting to enjoy my own handmade fresh from the oven pizza was well worth … oh wait, yeah, it was free … and came with a beer. Attendees were given some Birra Morettie vouchers, a bottle opener and a guide to “hosting an authentic Italian meal.”
Cool thing is Moretti’s doing all this freebie pizza stuff again tomorrow at Islington Green and then next week at Tavistock Square and the week after that at Potters Fields Park.
These pop up pizza masterclasses are free. Here are the details:
-15 June @ Islington Green
- 21 and 22 June @ Tavistock Square
- 28 and 29 June @ Potters Fields Park
Timings for each masterclass: noon to 2.20pm for lunch and 4.30pm to 7.30pm for a second seating.
You’re welcome to just walk up to participate, but it’s probably wise to book via Moretti UK’s Facebook app.
