Good Beer Week at K&G

Good Beer Week at K&G

Agostino Deli King and Godfree Melbourne News Venues

We’ll be holding three stellar Good Beer Week events this year for all the beer enthusiasts out there.

Salt. Fat. Acid. Heat. – Tuesday 14 May, 7.30pm, Agostino Cellar

Join Two Bird Brewing’s Jayne Lewis on a sensory exploration of beer and food, held in the beautiful cellar at Agostino. Lewis will help you discover the unique ways that beer styles interact with tastes; from salty, sweet, fatty and acidic.

For example, salt will be showcased with a salt cod fritter with aioli and heat with spicy nduja, white bean and octopus crostini. There will also be a grazing table complete with a variety of cheeses, salumi and pickles.

Si Parla Italiano – Thursday 16 May, 7pm, Agostino

The most refined out of the three events will be Si Parla Italiano, a six-course dinner at Agostino our soon to be open wine bar, matched with the delicious and innovative beers from Garage Project.

To start, chicken liver parfait with vincotto and crostini will be paired with Pas de Deux (a Belgian beer fermented together with champagne yeasts). For mains, you can expect venison with white polenta, cimi di rapa and chestnuts matched with a Mutiny on the Bounty stout. Garage Project’s take on the stout is brewed with breadfruit, roasted, plantain, coconut and Tahitian vanilla. To finish, neighbours Pidapipo will be providing a sour peach gelato to go with a White Mischief – a kettle soured wheat, lightly salted and infused with white peaches.

This will be one adventurous and tasty dinner. Tickets are limited – so hop to it.

Moon Dog Rooftop Tap Takeover – Friday 17 May, 5pm, Johnny’s Green Room

Our rooftop – Johnny’s Green Room – will be taken over by the folks at Moon Dog for one night only. All taps on the rooftop will transform to Moon Dog’s range, including pale ales, tropical lagers, dark ales and IPAs.

There will also be a Tinnie Bar, where you can explore the more adventurous Moon Dog beverages, including the 2019 Jumping the Shark and Black Lung IX. Wash it all down with BBQ beer snacks, including pork and fennel sausage in milk buns, Piedmontese style roasted peppers and BBQ octopus with salmoriglio. The best bit? In true Moon Dog style, it will be a full moon on the night of the party.

 

To book tickets to all three events, head here.

Gnocchi Masterclass

Gnocchi Masterclass

Agostino Deli King and Godfree Melbourne News Venues

As a prelude to Mother’s Day, we will be hosting our first ever pasta masterclass in the cellar. Headed up by our in-house pasta maker Piera, learn how to make and shape your own gnocchi.

Piera – who emigrated from Bologna in 2010 – is no stranger to making pasta. Before joining us at King & Godfree, she was the sfoglina (the term used for a female pasta-making matriarch using traditional techniques) at Rosetta Ristorante.

Piera believes that pasta in not the vehicle for sauce. Pasta is the hero, and the sauce a friend. This ethos will be at front of mind at the masterclass, with the addition of learning how to make two sauces to enjoy with your gnocchi; pesto Genovese and Bolognese.

Following the class, you will enjoy the fruits of your labour, with the addition of King & Godfree salads, cheese, wine and cannoli to finish.

The class will run from 11am – 2pm on Saturday 11 May. Tickets are $95pp and can be purchased here.
