Join us for a four-course dinner including matched wines, with Italy’s Isabella Potì (Bros’, Lecce), Floriano Pellegrino (Bros’, Lecce) and Enrico Tomelleri (10 William Street, Sydney).
In 2017, Potì was listed in Forbes’ 30 under 30 (Europe) and named one of the 10 most influential women in Italian cuisine. The incredibly talented 22-year old is taking a sabbatical from Italy’s Bros restaurant in Southern Italy’s beautiful Lecce to join the Sydney Good Food Month’s line up of chef superstars.
Potì was a celebrity guest chef on Masterchef Italy, showing the world her talent having trained under Claude Bosi at his two Michelin-starred London restaurant, Martin Berasategui’s three-starred restaurant, and master pastry chef Paco Torreblanca, who is considered the father of modern pastry.
Join Isabella for an incredible evening, as she brings her fresh and innovative approach to Italian cuisine in her debut Australian appearance.
Poti is astonishingly young for someone who has achieved so much in the cooking world. She started her training at the two Michelin star Hibiscus restaurant with chef Cloude Bosi in London, followed by an internship with the three Michelin star Basque chef Martin Berasategui. She then worked with master confectioner and legendary pastry chef, Paco Torreblanca. She is one of the youngest chefs ever to appear on MasterChef, Italy, as a dessert challenge judge.
Today Poti works at the Michelin starred restaurant Bros’ in Southern Italy’s beautiful Lecce, creating modern and classic desserts for the innovative, cutting-edge venue.
Floriano and his brother Giovanni own Bros’ restaurant in picturesque Lecce, in Italy’s South. He has trained with some of the world’s very best chefs including Noma’s Rene Redzepi, Martin Berasategui, and Claude Bosi. Pellegrino has one a string of awards, including Best Commis Chef when he was just 18 years old by the prestigious Bocuse d’Or, and most recently he was named as one of Forbes ‘30 Under 30 Europe’ (Good Food Month guest Isabella Poti, Bros’ pastry chef and Pellegrino’s partner, has also won this accolade).
Pellegrino’s Michelin starred Bros’ is a modern restaurant, bringing a fresh approach to traditional local ingredients, turning them into bold, contemporary and creative new dishes.
Head Chef, 10 William St
Tomelleri is the head chef of 10 William St, Paddington; a pint-sized wine bar that’s been a favourite of locals, wine lovers (those keen on Italian varietals can hardly keep away) and the hospitality industry for years. He cooked at 10 William St for nearly three years before taking the helm, working alongside Dan Pepperell (Restaurant Hubert), Luke Burgess (Garagistes, TAS) and Pinbone’s Mikey Eggert and Jemma Ward during their residency there.
An Italian native, Tomelleri trained at Verona’s famous Tre Corone, owned by pasta legend Giovanni Rani. In a stroke of good luck (or maybe it was just excellent strategic planning) his first job in Australia was in the kitchen at Fratelli Paradiso in 2011.
