#Morettigrantour Comes to London

When the moon hits your eyes like a big pizza pie, that's amore. 
When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine, that's amore
Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling and you'll sing "Vita bella"
Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay like a gay tarantella.

If you didn't see my instagram story on monday, you probably missed my best story so far (just saying),  I had the pleasure of attending the Gran Moretti Tour and I brought my sister along with me because there is no one I'd rather spend the day with!

We went down on one of the open house days to experience some of the street food, can you say perfetto? Because I certainly could after experiencing all the different vendors they had to offer. We started off by visiting Pizza Pilgrim which seemed to have the longest queue of the three vendors the whole night and boy when I say that was some good as frick dough, I mean it. As in, the softest, pillowy, goodness you could ever imagine with a smoky after taste thanks to the oven!

I can't tell you how much fun it was watching the pizza being made in front of you in the open air and then watching it be put in the oven. It was a nice change from waiting on the usual domino pizza to be made.

Next we visited The Cheese Wheel to have some fettucine alfredo (pasta dishes cooked inside a wheel of parmigiano-reggiano, yes you read that right!) and I don't know where to start. Maybe with the fact they make the pasta right in front of you? Or maybe with the fact you get to watch them toss the pasta about in a wheel of  parmigiano-reggiano? I could of cried at the sight, it was so beautiful.

I'm not a fan of beer, at all, not that I've drank it but the smell of my dads beer always was off putting to me, however  if you're going to the Moretti Gran Tour, go hard or go home right? So I gave it a taste and the only words I can think of to describe it was: crisp, refreshing and surprisingly good as I found myself taking sip after sip.

We had booked the sommelier experience but unfortunately had to leave after waiting over 40 minutes for our experience and being left to awkwardly float about and wait, the platters did look good from what I could see though. Although we didn't get to do the sommelier experience we did however get to enjoy the amazing view from above.

Listening to Gypsies of Bohemia cover this charming man by the smiths and watching the fairy lights twinkle as you watched friends and couples have a little jig really warmed the heart and put me in such a good mood, it was nice to watch other people let loose on a monday evening especially because the weather was perfect for the event.

The whole experience in general was lovely and I would definitely recommend going to everyone if you love good food, good vibes and good music. Had an amazing time from start to finish, the only thing was I found myself wishing I had some gelato or  rather, any Italian dessert to finish off a near perfect day.

Now that I've had a taste of Italy I want more, next stop the real thing maybe?
Until next time, salute!

What's your opinion?

  1. This looks like my ideal day out! Whoever thought up of the idea of making food in a giant wheel of cheese is a genius.. I would love to taste some of that pasta!!


  2. Sucker for pizza! I think of nothing better than a day out dedicated to pizza and beer! Looks like a really fun day and the last pic gives me all the feels, that was my fav ride when I was younger! - x
