Mode Kitchen & Bar at Four Seasons Hotel Sydney Collaborates with Al Taglio for a Pizza Night


January 30, 2020,
Sydney, Australia

Mode Kitchen & Bar at Four Seasons Hotel Sydney is hosting an exclusive, one-night only dinner in collaboration with Enrico Sgarbossa from Al Taglio – an award-winning, internationally-recognised pizzeria in Surry Hills on Sunday, February 23, 2020 from 5:30 pm.

Al Taglio’s philosophy and approach to pizza highlights sustainability and making use of the best local ingredients for a balanced and healthy lifestyle.  Across the evening, guests will be taken on a culinary journey of taste and exploration with pizza bases ranging from gluten-free to 100 percent wholemeal, multi-grain sourdough and Vegan.

As commended by Massimo Bottura (owner of World’s Best Restaurant awards 2016), Chefs Enrico and Francesco will be working together to showcase a range of pizzas starting with a traditional 80s margherita – and for those who are a little more daring, there will be a chef’s selection of flavours available on the night.

To say Sgarbossa knows his dough is something of an understatement – he took out the top spot in the Giro Pizza di Europe competition in 2014. He comes to pizza-making from a milling background – Molino Dallagiovanna, a flour mill just outside Piacenza in Emilia-Romagna, employed him as a pizza master and consultant. At Al Taglio he uses a cereal called tritordeum, which he describes as a cross between durum wheat and a wild barley. "It's rich in protein and doesn't have a lot of gluten."

Seats are strictly limited for this one-time-only, exclusive experience. Book today to secure a place.
