Obikà – Big Balls of Mozzarella at Taste of London

We are big fans of the aperitivo – share our love for Sprizzato here and Banca here.  Now comes…

Obikà will bring the concept of Aperitivo to the most anticipated foodie festival of the year, Taste of London. Thursday 20 June – Sunday 23 June 2013 at S7, Taste of London, Regents Park, London, NW1 5HA.


London is again at the forefront of the hottest culinary trends in the world, and the Italian Aperitivo is in vogue. The custom of Aperitivo is a tradition deeply rooted in Italian culture, whereby early evening drinks are enjoyed and paired with antipasto to whet the appetite for your evening meal.

Obikà invites guests to take a moment to sit, relax and unwind with an offering of all things Italian, including an impressive 5kg Treccia mozzarella.

Choose from an Aperitivo Spritz, a traditional Bellini, or a chilled glass of Fiol Prosecco, accompanied by Obikà’s signature range of artisan Mozzarella dishes and  a selection of antipasto and cured meats paired with Feudi di San Gregorio wine.

Obikà will be holding two masterclasses for all Mozzarella aficheeseionados, where you can discover the time-honoured traditions of crafting the world’s finest Bufala Campana DOP to Stracciatella di Burrata.  

The second masterclass is all about matching your Mozzarella with the perfect Aperitivo.  Select from a range of delicate Paestum, deliciously creamy Burrata, or the naturally smoked Affumicata, to pair with FIOL Prosecco DOC. The smoothness and creaminess of the Mozzarella is perfectly balanced by the crisp fruit flavours and fizz of the prosecco. Sign up for Masterclasses when you arrive at Taste of London by visiting the Obika (Stand S7). For more information regarding Masterclass times please see the Obikà page on the Taste of London website.

If you are unable to attend Taste of London, you can still enjoy their exclusive menu designed for this event for only £20 at both of London’s Obikà restaurants located in Canary Wharf and South Kensington.

The limited edition Taste of London set menu consists of 3 courses, including a traditional antipasto, handcrafted traditional Italian pasta or pizza and a classic dolce of tiramisù or torta ricotta (cheesecake created using buffalo ricotta), served with a complimentary glass of prosecco.
