Emilia Strazzanti and her sisters inherited their passion for the flavours of Italy from their Sicilian and Neapolitan grandparents. Inspired by these family ties, and countless hours spent alongside their nonne in the kitchen, Emilia and co. are committed to showcasing the very best ingredients that Sicily has to offer. Emilia learnt her trade as a pastry chef at The Dorchester, under the tutelage of Anton Mosimann, before moving to Le Maurice (Paris), Il Principe di Savoia (Milan) and finally Accursio (Modica) where Michelin-starred chef, Accursio Craparo, introduced her to some of Sicily’s most talented producers. Pistachios from Bronte, almonds from Noto... Emilia’s cooking is a celebration of Sicilian culture, heritage and terroir. Paired with local wines, her knockout Carousel menu includes panelle (chickpea fritters with wild fennel mayo); fresh buffalo ricotta ravioli with pistachio, confit langoustines and langoustine bisque; and a trio of mind-blowing signature Strazzanti pastries. Plans for a dedicated space are afoot but in the meantime, catch mega talent Emilia right here in Marylebone.
