AN ITALIAN Le Marche chef living in Rugeley will celebrate the fourth anniversary of his canalside restaurant by laying on a special gourmet feast.
Giuseppe Iaconi opened Il Marchigiano at The Plum Pudding in Armitage in 2008 and will invite guests on October 27 to sample a five-course fine food feast from his homeland in the Le Marche region of Italy, including one of Giuseppe’s speciality steak dishes and a complimentary glass of champagne for every guest.
Mr Iaconi, who was born and raised in the small hill town of Ripatransone between the Adriatic and the Apennine mountains has spent his life immersed in the region’s cooking, which is peasant inspired using the finest fresh ingredients.
“We had a very successful Italian gourmet evening last month, so we decided to celebrate our fourth anniversary with another one – but one which will be just a little bit more special,” he said.
The meal is priced at £24.95 a head and places can be booked through the Plum Pudding’s web site at www.ilmarchigiano.co.uk or by ringing 01543 490330.
