Gourmet Institute 2019 event details: Guy Grossi

The Grossi Florentino chef makes a strong case for Rome as the flavour capital of the world.

This chef's reign at Grossi Florentino (an institution with a 90-year-old history) has earned him respect and acclaim, but Guy Grossi can also be counted on for cheeky fun, too (see the midnight spaghetti at his Arlechin bar). Trust the godfather of Melbourne's Italian food scene to also school you in the staples: pumpkin tortellini, vitello Albese, dot sourdough and porchetta worth carving up. And don't worry – he doesn't hold back on the grated Grana Padana.
Matching wines, courtesy of Bird in Hand, include Bird in Hand Nero d'Avola 2017, Bird in Hand Chardonnay 2018 and Bird in Hand Sparkling pinot noir 2018.
