Pop-up – Davide Nanni Lunch & Anversa degli Abruzzi & Castrovalva Rambles – SOLD OUT

Anversa degli Abruzzi

This exclusive Life In Abruzzo Pop-up includes lunch cooked by acclaimed wild chef and author Davide Nanni at his family Agriturismo and guided rambles in Anversa degli Abruzzi & Castrovalva on Saturday 15th June.



Ingrid Paardekooper creator and author of ‘In Abruzzo’ and a local resident will lead our gentle ramble on a ‘friends and equals’ premise through the two towns so beloved by the Dutch graphic artist, MC Escher.  We will meet for coffee at 10.00, explore Anversa and then drive up to Castrovalva for our second walk before lunch.



Davide Nanni A SentimentoDavide Nanni is famous for cooking outdoors and bringing a human dimension back into haute cuisine—his first fabulous cookbook, ‘A sentimento. La mia cucina libera, sincera, selvaggia‘ came out this Spring.

After training in Italy, he worked at Giorgio Locatelli’s in London, then Rome and Florida before returning to his roots to manage the restaurant in his family’s Agriturismo in Castrovalva which is now booked out months in advance!  

He truly believes in the land and gives everything to it.  His cookbook is divided into sentimental chapters,  family anecdotes, his worldwide experiences and naturally superb recipes.
