Did you ever think you would start to miss the hustle and bustle of central London? The crowds of excited shoppers on payday weekend, the tourists stopping to take selfies in the middle of Fitzrovia, even the extra wait in your local beauty salon when the previous appointments overrun.
We didn’t either! As we calmly and patiently wait for the reopening of our much-loved shopping destinations, we are thrilled to share a few ways for you to keep enjoying your favourite Rathbone retailers from the comfort and safety of your own home.
The restaurant may be closed, but the incredible team at Big Mamma are giving you every reason to keep the good vibes going with #BigMammaAtHome! Transform your kitchen into a Trattoria by recreating your favourite dine-in dishes straight from their delicious menu. As well as posting the recipes to their stunning La Gran Carbonara (entire cheese wheels serving suggestion optional!), outrageous Lemon Pie and decadent Tigramisu on their Instagram page for you to peruse at your leisure, they are holding live cook-a-longs! Last Sunday saw Chef Filippo turning pasta fresca magically into Casoncelli Bergamaschi alla carne, and they have plenty more Italian charm up their sleeves. Make sure you’re signed up to their newsletter via the website to get a regular dose of Italian love, including all cookalong dates and extra-special tips from the team.
