Fratelli Fresh has unveiled its brimful July calendar, which features chocolate-infused lunches, truffle dinners, cooking classes, special gnocchi and lasagne offerings and Aperol-themed fun.
Fratelli Fresh is popping up at the Bondi Farmers’ Market each Sunday in July, from 9am to 4pm. The market menu features $10 items, including a breakfast pizza topped with bacon, egg, feta and rocket; an avocado smash focaccia; and two of Fratelli’s classic pizzas: margherita and diavola. Pizzas will be wood-fired in Fratelli’s mobile oven.
Fratelli Fresh will hero every foodie’s favourite carb, gnocchi, for five days only. Three special dishes are on offer for just $15 each, from Monday, 22 July to Friday, 26 July. Guests can choose from gnocchi with tomato and mozzarella, burnt butter and sage or Bolognese ragu.
On Monday, 29 July, each restaurant will also serve $10 lasagne dishes all day, in honour of National Lasagne Day. That’s less than half-price for this Fratelli classic, which features pork and beef ragu, béchamel, tomato and parmesan.
Truffle season is in full swing and to celebrate Fratelli Fresh is hosting a series of exquisite dinners from Monday, 15 July to Thursday, 18 July. The four-course menu ($69pp) features truffled celeriac velouté, snapper ravioli with truffle butter and fish roe, braised beef cheek with truffle mash, roasted Dutch carrots, and truffle-infused tiramisu.
