Hearty Food for Valiant Olive Pickers on Sunday 5th December


Our cousins who make the wonderful Potentino wine we serve in the Restaurant and Club are running their pop-up restaurant at Frontline every first Sunday of the month.

This is their latest email with news from the vineyard and announcing the menu for Sunday 5th December: Hearty Food for Valiant Olive Pickers.

Please book directly with Alexander by emailing [email protected].


We are being flooded out of the olive groves at the moment but when the sun shines all are in shirt sleeves up the ladders. Soon, the cold Tramontana wind from Siberia will start blowing in with crystal clear blue skies and everyone rushes inside to get as close as possible to the fire, where the new oil and bruschetta and garlic are very popular. This menu is for that hunger.

Lunch 1pm for 1:30pm and dinner 7:30pm for 8pm at £25 a head:

Ciaffagnoni with Ricotta and Chard (Tuscan Cannelloni)
Red Onion Acquacotta with Quail’s Egg and Bruschetta
Beetroot, Orange and Radicchio Salad
Sauteed Scarola Lettuce with Garlic and Anchovy
Dana’s Panettone Pudding

Coffee is included

All our ingredients will come from Italy or sourced locally in England.
