From July 1 to August 31, 2017, Tosca transforms into a magical world of wonder every Saturday afternoon as the Michelin-starred Italian restaurant will be serving up a feast of scrumptious afternoon tea treats on the “Alessi Circus” tableware collection by Marcel Wanders.
Full of color and life, the “Alessi Circus” collection features touches of circus magic with rhomboidal, circular, striped and pointed geometric shapes and patterns in vivid colors of white, black, yellow, red, gold and silver. Taking on the vibrancy of the Alessi Circus range, Chef Pino Lavarra of Tosca has devised a selection of colorful and palate-pleasing gourmet morsels perfectly blending with the fantasy world of circus.
Served fresh out of the oven, Cuscini summons up authentic tastes of Italy on one plate with fried pizza, ricotta cheese and Parma ham. Cerchi stirs the taste buds with a crunchy spaghetti roll filled with refreshing arrabbiata tomato. More than what its name suggests, Hot Dog is a refined version enhanced with chicken sausage, mozzarella and black truffle. Anelli, a tempting assortment of doughnuts dressed in colorful chocolate sauce and condiments, is sure to catch one’s attention at first sight. The delectable snack trio – Popcorn, Nuvole and Mandorle e sabbia, featuring popcorn with chocolate cake, cotton candy and crispy almonds, respectively, is the must-have item to best enjoy a circus show.
To bring the excitement and thrill of circus to Tosca’s tables, a professional magician will be staging astounding tricks during each afternoon tea session.
