Pochi ma Buoni – ‘Small but Great’

Pochi ma Buoni – ‘Small but Great’

Pop-up regional Italian dining experiences in the Australian countryside, showcasing local produce and cool-climate wine in charming country locations

SO WHERE ARE WE POPPING UP NEXT?

We had such a blast during the 2017 Orange Wine Festival with the See Saw Wine for their ‘Pilgrimage of Elevation’ and our Vino Express tour group. There’s no rest for the wicked though, and we are now turning our attention to harvest time and vintage 2018. Pencil in 30 March to 1 April for an Autumnal food and wine weekend experience in one of the prettiest towns in New South Wales, as our amazing locals bring in the produce and cool-climate grapes from the fields and the vines.

Pochi ma Buoni – April 2018

If you’ve ever wanted to truly experience living like a local, join us for our next Pochi PopUp in a country hall with a live jazz band. Paolo will be spinning his unique twist on centuries-old regional Italian recipes using local produce straight from the farms of Orange, New South Wales. It’s rural Italy meets regional Australia at its best, and most fun!

About Pochi ma Buoni

Our Pochi ma Buoni (Small but Great) pop-up events are regional Italian dining experiences held in some of the best cellar doors and unusual and charming country venues in our Australian home region of Orange in Central NSW. Paolo cooks in what is known as the ‘cucina casareccia’ style of regional Italian dining – where authentic, homemade meals are prepared by home cooks using fresh, local ingredients and following traditional recipes. He sources fresh local seasonal produce for each event and matches the dishes carefully to bring out the best in the stunning regional cool climate wines.

What’s Pochi ma Buoni mean?

Pronounced something like “pokey-ma-bwonnie”, if someone invites you to a party in Paolo’s home region of Ciociaria (just 1 hour from Rome), and they tell you it’s going to be “pochi ma buoni” then you know it’s going to be good. It’s a fun phrase used by youthful Italians to refer to an event that is small and select, but which attracts like-minded and gregarious people. Directly translated it means“only for the very few, but very good”, however we like to explain it more simply as ’Small but Great’.

Good people, good food, good wine – good times.
