Harrods to launch Pizza Gourmet pop-up

The  Staff Canteen
This October, Italian artisan chefs Franco Pepe and Simone Padoan will take the helm of The Pizzeria at Harrods to offer six special gourmand creations for a limited period. Chef_PepeFrom Tuesday 27th until Saturday 31st October, Harrods will introduce Pizza Gourmet, a pop-up to entice London foodies and pizza enthusiasts to try six limited edition varieties that are set to tantalise taste buds, in association with Identità Golose. Taking residency at the Harrods Pizzeria and Canti Prosecco Bar, on the second floor, famed Italian chefs Franco Pepe and Simone Padoan will provide food lovers with specially crafted pizzas, including vegetarian options. Sharing two completely different backgrounds, cooking methods, recipes and ingredients, Franco and Simone will celebrate their own unique styles in a five-day pizza feast. Chef_Padoan Franco, whose restaurant Pepe in Grani is located near Naples, has created a menu combining Neapolitan tradition and innovative cooking technology to offer customers a contemporary twist on the classic Italian pizza. Menu highlights include the Mistaken Margherita, which involves the tomato being cold reduced to maintain and enhance its strong taste and then added to the pizza at the end of the cooking process. Simone, born in Verona, is known as the inventor of the new Italian pizza. In his restaurant I Tigli di San Bonifacio, he has changed the way classic pizza is perceived, cementing its place on the restaurant map in Italy. Menu highlights include the ‘From Land to Sea’ pizza; with Mazara del Vallo fresh red shrimps and Mediterranean vegetables, this pizza is inspired by Simone’s culinary roots which are equally influenced by land and sea ingredients. Pizza Gourmet opening hours: Tuesday - Friday 12:00pm to 9:00pm Saturday 11.30am to 9:00pm
