Francesco Mazzei’s much-loved Islington trattoria, Radici, is launching a new bottomless weekend brunch, that centres around a knockout sharing pizza created by Francesco and the newly-appointed Head Chef, Giuseppe Cafaro. Radici’s Brunch Pinsa for two to share, is a playful and delicious take on several classic combinations, featuring smoked salmon and yoghurt, poached eggs and avocado, prosciutto and mushroom, and is set to become a classic on the London brunch scene.
Further brunch dishes, inspired by the warm climate and wonderful ingredients of Italy, include Tuscany meets Puglia with pappa pomodoro, burrata and anchovy; Cannellini bean stew with poached eggs and sausage; and Ciambotta, grilled pumpkin, mushrooms and torpedino tomatoes. Meanwhile, for something sweet, salty and utterly indulgent, Francesco and Giuseppe have created the Grilled pineapple and pancetta pancakes with, mascarpone, honey and orange – a fun take on prosciutto and melon and Canadian bacon pancakes all rolled into one!
With its laid-back atmosphere and rustic interiors, reminiscent of the sun-baked landscapes of southern Italy, Radici is the perfect north London spot to hideaway from the cold and spend a lazy weekend enjoying British brunch dishes with an extravagant Italian twist.
