Deliciously, deliciously, lishous!

To celebrate Pentillie’s appearances on Sky 1’s latest drama ‘Delicious’ starring Dawn French, Emilia Fox and Sheila Hancock, we hosted a Delicious inspired dinner on Saturday 14th January.

TV food stylist Lisa Heathcote joined us for the evening, and regaled guests with photographs and tales from behind the scenes of both ‘Delicious’, and ‘Downtown Abbey’ on which she has also worked.

Pentillie’s chef Casey worked with Lisa to create a menu inspired by the Italian food featured in the TV Series, and our wine merchant Charles Steevenson matched the meal with delicious Italian wines.

The event was a great success although we might have broken the world record for utterances of ‘Delicious’ in the course of one evening. Not only were we talking about the TV series, but the food was also utterly scrummy.

So, just for laughs we have tried to come up with as many synonyms for Delicious as we can…. your input would be welcome.
