Manchester Food and Drink Festival has teamed up with Manchester Art Gallery to host a unique series of four art-meets-food supper clubs.
Each exclusive event will see the City’s best chefs create a one-off, immersive dining experience, themed around a different exhibition or art work. The aim is to delight all the senses through amazing food and the beautiful surroundings of the gallery spaces.
The first event in the season is Dine with da Vinci – an authentic Italian supper club created by local specialists Salvi’s on Saturday, April 27. Guests will be greeted with a glass of Italian fizz, after which the Gallery’s expert curators will treat visitors to a private tour of the Leonardo da Vinci: A Life In Drawing exhibition.
The show closes on Monday, May 6 with all remaining tours are sold out, so this is a chance to enjoy an exclusive viewing of 12 of Da Vinci’s iconic drawings before they are returned to the Royal Collection.
At the heart of Dine With Da Vinci is an authentic 4 course Italian long-table banquet created by Salvi’s owner Maurizio Cecco and inspired by the produce and recipes of Da Vinci’s own era 500 years ago. The meal will be served in one of the splendid historic gallery spaces and will be accompanied by live Italian music.
This is a one-off experience not to be missed, so get your tickets before they’re gone!
