This is the big one people! Pasta night at, my home away from home, Bar Mercato. This evening is shaping up to be very exciting with three courses of pasta made by our Italian chefs.
3 course Pasta Menu features:
Penne and Zuccini in a light Tomato Sauce topped with grated dried Ricotta
Oven-Baked Crepe Pockets (Crespelle) filled with Mushrooms and topped with classic Bechamel Sauce
Pappardelle in slowcooked Beef and Pork Ragu
Mamma mia che buona!
We’ll also have our favourite jazz band ‘Conservatorium of Music’ playing some smooth tunes into the evening, and beverages will be available to purchase from the bar. Tickets are $40 for adults and $20 for children under 12.
I love the incredible events we put on and host at Mercato, if you’ve never been to one – what are you waiting for! And if you have, I’m sure you’ll agree, there is plenty of fun, enjoyment, delicious food, decadent wine, coupled with traditional experiences, and beautiful cultural immersion.
See you there xo
