Viva Italia!
For all those dreaming of a Mediterranean holiday this year but not quite managing it, never fear: Peterborough’s Italian Festival is back! Food, music, wine, Vespas, food, Lambrettas, food, an Italian market… and of course, lots and lots of yummy food. This year will include special guest Gennaro Contaldo – a renowned Italian chef who previously worked with Antonio Carluccio at his Neal Street restaurant in London, and once mentored a young man named Jamie Oliver. Other delights at this year’s event are yet to be revealed, but it is certain to bring a true flavour of Italy to Peterborough’s streets.
