Gulp down some amazing Italian Food

Mangia! Mangia! literally translates as Eat! Eat! and may sound a little bossy, but you definitely won’t need telling twice. This glorious pop-up is a celebration of the Italian way of eating; an evening of simple but delicious food, freshly prepared in Gulp’s Kitchen.

The menu includes Italian favourites Sarde a beccafico (stuffed sardines), a magnificent salame di cioccolato (chocolate salami), and finished off with homemade Limoncello. Are you dribbling yet? I am!

ABOUT Mangia! Mangia!

Mangia! Mangia! is the food baby of Matt O’Callaghan, a Birmingham based cook, grower, writer and teacher of food, specialising in traditional Italian and British recipes.

Much of the food he cooks is grown on his own Birmingham allotment, a project demonstrating that you don’t have to live in Italy to grow Mediterranean food. 

Recipes and stories are available at and you can follow the allotment and cooking on IG – mangiamangiauk.
