Introducing our guests:


Dario Cecchini – the legend of italian and global butchery, showman, artist, a fan of italian poetry. Butcher in the 8th generation. As he says himself his creation is mostly about the respect for the animals that’s why all animal body parts has to be used. His beef and his pork are the best quality meat well known in Italy and the world.

With Adam’s assistance Dario will lead partition of the half-carcass pork. The main event will be filled with Dario’s lecture and his stories about the philosophy of butcher’s profession. From the parted pork, Dario and Adam will prepare white sausage, seasoned with Tuscan herbs that is a part of the night’s menu.The supper will also include our restaurant’s specials – pastrami sandwiches and and hungarian wines.

Pastrami of Paweł Sacha, the co-founder of Pastrami Deli, had been tasted by Faith Willinger, New York Times journalist that lives in Florence, who is also a chef and the author for many culinary recipes. She is the italian ‘madrina’ – godmother of big culinary events in Italy. She wanted to prepare something special for a dinner with her friend – Dario Cecchini – and she had decided to use Paweł’s beef. After tasting our pastrami Dario wished to meet Paweł and so he invited him to his homeland – Panzano in Chianti. After their meeting and feasting in Tuscany the two gentelmen had become friends and that resulted with a common cooking at sicilian Etna, during local meat festival Carnalia.
If you want to see how it is done by the truest masters of meat delicatessen, if you want to try their meals you have to be in Cracow on September 26th!
