A popular restaurant in Glasgow’s West End is set to host an exclusive evening of events to celebrate the ‘World Week of Italian Cuisine’.

The ‘Settimana Della Cucina’ campaign of Italian food and culture runs from the 19th to the 25th of November and as part of the celebrations Eusebi Deli will hold a special night on Wednesday 21st November.

The aim of the weeklong campaign is to reinforce the importance of quality ingredients by educating food lovers on how to identify and appreciate authentic Italian products and dishes.

The events at Eusebi have been created in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute, the Italian Consulate General, The Extraordinary Italian Taste and the Italian Chamber of Commerce.

The restaurant will welcome Italian culinary experts to share their passion and knowledge with diners in Glasgow.

The first event will be a complimentary talk and tasting of wines and oils from the Castel Del Monte area of Italy and will run from 5:30pm to 6:30pm. Highly regarded experts in agriculture and produce from the region, Antonio Caputo and Maria Teresa Pellegrino will guide guests through the presentation to explain how these products are grown, harvested and processed.

The second event of the evening will see Michelin star chef, Felice Sgarra create a one-off tasting menu inspired by the Andriese region of Italy.

The dishes will be made using the freshest Italian ingredients to highlight the flavours and culinary heritage of the area. Tickets for the dinner must be purchased in advance and are priced at £70 per person for a 4-course meal with paired wines. The exclusive evening will start at 8pm.

Giovanna Eusebi, owner of Eusebi Deli, said: “I come from a long line of strong Italian women who were proud to show me the great flavours of Italian cuisine. At Eusebi, we are still on the same journey to share the food that we are so passionate about.”

“Our team are committed to showcasing ‘eccellenze italiane’ (Italian excellence) and we strive to show our customers what real, authentic Italian food is. The ‘World Week of Italian Cuisine’ is a celebration of everything Italy has to offer and we’re excited to welcome a Michelin star chef, Felice Sgarra to mark the occasion!”
