Last night, on the recommendation of my friend Amanda, Tom and I went to Forza Win. It is a pop-up restaurant in East London that serves Fonduta, a type of fondue from Northern Italy. We organised to go with Tom’s friend George, and his girlfriend Ellie. All day we were swapping excited emails about our evening.
The restaurant was set on a roof top, luckily it was covered and had plenty of heaters, plus there were blankets on most of the seats. (once again all photos were taken on an iphone so aren’t great quality!!)
We arrived to a hot vodka and bailey’s based drink that tasted strong and Christmassy! We then switched to a delicious Italian white wine to cut through the cheese!
There were 5 large tables so our group of 4 sat with another couple, and another group. It was a self serve bowl of fonduta so we all got stuck in.
Fonduta is made with fondita soaked in milk for four hours, then melted down and mixed with double cream! It was delicious, so creamy and rich. Our bowl was topped up regularly throughout the night and we were given various things to dip into our cheese including roasted squash, soda bread, ham and sausages from gingerpig, and roasted parsnips. I was so full after going back to the fonduta bowl a number of times! Obviously I had space for the chocolate icecream from Gelupo. It was incredibly rich, so I made Tom give me some of his raspberry icecream to soften the intensity!
