DIEGO PASQUALICCHIO

From an early age, Diego has been drawn to food. Born and raised in Turin, he grew up eating home made fresh Italian dishes cooked by his parents. At the Pasqualicchio’s, cooking was a serious family affair, where important celebrations were framed in time around a home cooked feast rather than at the restaurant.

It is therefore no coincidence, Diego, joined the Turin culinary academy. After his training, he gained experience in a local restaurant with a Michelin star. This very first experience in a real kitchen brigade was decisive. He learned everything from scratch, rotating from primi (pasta, rice) to the secondi (meat and fish).

Leaving Italy, he spent nine years in Miami where he affirmed his culinary style. Diego plied his trade in Italian restaurants and was firmly exposed to international cuisine especially with South American influence.

Diego brings over twenty years of experience to The Magazine. His current cooking style is a combination of his Italian heritage, international experiences and favourite meals. He particularly enjoys using exotic products such as Cassava, plantain, tapioca, and tropical fruits to name a few. Working in an art gallery restaurant allows him to challenge his creativity to the maximum.

It is very exciting to have a new input of ideas at The Magazine and Diego certainly shares our passion for producing top dishes, created using fresh, local and seasonal ingredients.

Canapés

the park table

by kofler & kompanie

Following the sold out summer guest chef series Park Table, we are delighted to announce that we will be welcoming Madeleine Shaw on Friday 9th September for what promises to be another show stopping evening.

Madeleine is a nutritional health coach, qualified yoga instructor, bestselling cookery writer & creator of the Glow Guides App, www.madeleineshaw.com. Her philosophy is simple: ditch the junk and eat your way to a healthy lifestyle that is both sustainable and delicious! She cooks with wholefoods, meat, fish and plenty of flavour – and is a strong advocate for focusing on the good stuff, rather than beating yourself up about the bad.

Through her website, YouTube Channel and Instagram following Madeleine aims to show people how healthy eating can be delicious, affordable and sustainable. She hosts monthly supper clubs and regularly talks at wellness events and literary festivals.

Featuring London’s most exciting young chefs, Park Table will be held at The Magazine restaurant, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid. The evening will commence with cocktails and Canapés in the stunning landscaped gardens of Lady Arabella Lennox Boyd. Dinner will follow within the stunning glass walls of the Magazine Restaurant where guests will be seated on one long curved table.

Magazine chefs Emmanuel and Felix have also invited some of tomorrow’s hopeful stars - trainee chefs from Café Crisis, a social enterprise training space, to work alongside them. With our open kitchen, you can catch all the live cooking as it unfolds.

The evening will commence at 7:30pm with cocktails and canapés, followed by a 3 course dinner from 8pm. Tickets are priced at £55 per person.

We have a limited number of seats available. Please click here to secure your seat.
