September's Feature, San Carlo - Cicchetti


September's Featured Region: Calabria

Experience the home-town dishes Italians love with the ‘Giro d’Italia’ (Journey through Italy) menu at the award-winning Cicchetti restaurant on King Street West, Manchester.

Created by Cicchetti’s expert chefs, it transports you to a different region of Italy each month. You'll discover delicious, seasonal dishes rarely found on UK menus – all strictly authentic and featuring ingredients flown in from that particular area.

In September, experience the clean, spicy food of the southern peninsula region of Calabria where the trademark taste is pepperoncino, a fiery chilli pepper. Other key ingredients in this rustic cuisine include cipolla rossa (a sweet red onion) from Tropea, dried figs, and bergamotto, a citrus fruit that grows along the south coast.  

The Calabria menu is available for one month only until 30 September 2013.

For dinner reservations call San Carlo Cicchetti on 0161 839 2233. www.sancarlocicchetti.co.uk.
