For Foodie Thursday, Paola Davies-Romano was asked to appear on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire's The Breakfast Show with Dotty McLeod to chat about her foodie upbringing, Italian food and future plans for Romano’s. What a thrill to be on live radio talking about what Paola knows best: FOOD!
It was a real pleasure to share the booth with Dotty. Her fun, casual broadcasting style put Paola at ease and brought out her bubbling personality. Buongiorno!
Catch Paola’s delicious recipe for Pasta with Leeks. It’s quick, easy and had everyone salivating by the end of the programme!
You can listen to the 3 August 2017 interview at the 2:51:23 mark here (until 2 September). Alternatively, you can head to One Two Culinary Stew's Media page and listen to the excerpt.
Romano’s were delighted to provide a full catering service for 20 people at a client’s special family gathering in their lovely Cambridgeshire home. The menu was developed with the client’s tastes and requirements in mind as it needed to include vegetarian and dairy-free options.
We created four delicious canapés: Asparagus wrapped in Parma Ham, Baby Italian Meatballs with a Marinara Dip, King Prawn & Chorizo on a stick with Gremolata Dip and Smoked Salmon & Gruyère Tartlet.
Our famous Lasagna alla Romano was the main course, along with our Aubergine Parmigiana (vegetarian) and Italian Bean & Sausage Hotpot (dairy-free). All served with a Mixed Green Salad with an Italian Vinaigrette Dressing and a selection of breads.
Three different desserts graced the table: Blueberry & Pandoro Zuppa Inglese, a dairy-free Torta Caprese and Tarte au Citron with Fresh Rasperries & Raspberry Coulis.
A cheese board with a variety of Italian cheeses rounded out the meal, complemented by Paola's homemade green tomato chutney, figs, walnuts, grapes and crackers.
Guests of all ages feasted on our 4-course menu. The hosts didn’t have to worry about a thing as we took care of it all: from the food to service, to the clearing away and tidying up at the end of the day!
We are humbled by these kind words: "Paola Davies-Romano worked her magic when she cooked and looked after us beautifully at a family reunion round our house. She made it all so simple for us in that we could enjoy, chat and relax with family. Everyone loved her and thought the food was absolutely amazing”. – Alison, Offord Cluny
We’re delighted that food blogger Pina of One Two Culinary Stew has shared her experience at Romano’s Big Fat Italian Supper Club on Saturday, 15 July. You can find her blog post here.
Pina describes each of the courses we lovingly prepared and served. Her post includes a compilation of wonderful photos and captures the spirit of event. It was all about going BIG with lots of food, flavours and fun in a festive atmosphere. We hope the menu gave some insight into some of Italy’s most mouthwatering cuisine, particularly from the Campania region.
It was such a pleasure to cook for our guests and have them gather around our table. We don’t think anyone went home hungry!
