The Tiny Italian Supperclub & cooking classes at Fifty Seven

A new Italian supper club and cooking class residency is hitting Fifty Seven this autumn.

Paola Maggiulli, better known as the Tiny Italian, is an Italian food expert, writer, presenter and home cook. She will be bringing her style of rustic home cooking and hosting for everyone to enjoy.

Leiths trained, she has featured on ITV’s ‘The big audition, presented at Taste of London and has created recipe content for Italian food brands.

Born and bred in London, Paola comes from a multicultural background. Her mother is  Colombian and her father, Italian. The family had a long-standing Italian delicatessen in south London for 20 years, where Paola learnt all there was to know about great Italian produce and running an independent business. Plus, every year, she makes multiple trips to Italy to eat and learn all there is about the country’s home cooking.

The Tiny Italian is about sharing the best in Italian food and culture, re-creating her favourite dishes into easy, quick everyday recipes suited for London living. Paola strongly believes in both the physical and mental benefits of home cooking. From the social advantages of cooking and spending time with others to being responsible and knowledgeable of the ingredients, you use and consume. Her mission is to inspire the younger generation who feel less confident in the kitchen, to those who consider themselves time-poor to have a better relationship with cooking and food.

Therefore, her supper clubs and cooking classes are part of that mission. Paola will cook Italian rustic home-style dishes that she often cooks for her friends and family. She will then follow these up with cooking classes where she will show you how you can recreate those recipes at home. Expect, a fun, colourful cooking class. Paola will offer short cuts and cooking tips so that you can go home and share your new skills with friends, families, and more importantly, with yourself.

The menus reflect Paola’s love for southern Italian/Mediterranean cooking. Tickets will start at £39 which will include a 4-course delicious sit-down meal. Its BYOB, so bring whatever tipple you fancy.
