Vegetarian New Year’s Eve Nordic Dinner
So, what exactly is our New Year’s Eve Nordic Dinner? Well, it’s a buffet dinner featuring a wide arrayof yummy dishes: savoury pies, pizza, focaccia, crepes, dips of all kinds and more. Also, it’s our way to deconstruct the traditional Italian way of celebrating the arrival of New Year, that usually sees people forced to sit for hours at a table and stuff their faces like the world would end tomorrow. Of course, there will be tables and benches to sit, even though we would like to recreate a flow similar to a cocktail-hour event yet different from it.
We call it "Nordic" because the event will take place mainly outdoor just like it happens in Northern Europe where folks are good friends with cold weather. We will provide a sheltered area under the porch, equipped with heaters to make it more comfy, however the real warmth will come from social interaction between guests. We aim to foster an environment that is tribal, rural and socially exciting.
After dinner, from 22:30 onward, there will be a lot of great music and we invite you to let loose and dance the night away; at midnight, we are going to burn a huge bonfire and toast with beer, wine, Panettone and bubbly. You’ll meet new amazing people and, surely, new friends. If you’d rather be in a sleepy and stuffy environment where all that matters is eating till you explode, you have thousands of options, although if you’re looking for something different then we may be the just the right thing for you!
