Glasgow's La Lanterna restaurant will be serving a specially designed menu in collaboration with Menabrea beer.

For one week only, from the 23 October, diners at the La Lanterna west end eatery can tuck into a paired Menabrea menu that includes beer-infused Italian S’Birro cheese and the ‘best risotto in the world’.

This summer, Menabrea Birra hosted Italian chefs from around the UK in the Piedmont region of Northern Italy, offering them the opportunity to collaborate on classic Italian dishes with local chefs, and tasting the finest local produce from around the region.

Luca Conreno head chef at La Lanterna was one of these chefs and, as a result of the trip, will be bringing this regional inspiration to Glasgow with his four course, limited edition menu.

Dishes include a Menabrea beer infused Sbirro cheese and Acquerello risotto rice – a staple in Michelin star kitchens – and all can be paired with Menabrea, the original premium Italian Birra.

Angus Lawrie of Menabrea, said: “We travelled with Italian chefs from all over the UK, collecting insights, ingredients and inspiration from the Piedmont region’s most celebrated chefs and producers and we’re bringing them here to be perfectly paired with Menabrea.”

“We invite people to book a table and dine the Menabrea way – if you’re a lover of Italian cuisine, this is a dining experience you simply can’t miss.”

Menabrea is brewed in Italy’s oldest brewery in the foothills of the Italian Alps in a small town called Biella, and is Italy’s premium choice to complement classic Italian dishes.
