The ‘La Famiglia’ sharing menu of traditional focaccia creations and gelato sundaes has been tailored for a truly Italian family affair

Dubai, UAE – 24 June 2018: Trattoria Toscana, the vibrant waterfront Italian dining destination at Souk Madinat Jumeirah, is expanding its summer offerings for the whole family to enjoy with the launch of ‘La Famiglia’ – a selection of all-new dishes designed for sharing among loved ones. Curated by Head Chef, Antonio Iocovelli, diners can dig into an authentic Italian family feast with classical focaccia and gelato dishes to suit all tastes.

“An Italian summer is all about family, friends and food, with weekends spent together sharing large portions of local delicacies. We wanted to bring a taste of that special experience to our diners at Trattoria Toscana focusing around hearty portions of my personal favourites – focaccia and gelato – that can be shared amongst family and friends”, said Chef Antonio.

Created exclusively for sharing, gather your friends and family and enjoy a selection of large Tutta Focaccias that are inspired by the sublime southern coastal areas of Puglia, with options for meat lovers, seafood fans and vegetarians.

The Vegetarian Focaccia Pugliese is stuffed with heritage tomato, buffalo mozzarella, basil pesto, rocket lettuce, shavings of parmesan and aged balsamic vinegar; The Meat Lover Focaccia Pugliese comprises sundried tomato pesto, baby gem lettuce, spicy beef salami, roasted capsicum and caramelized onion; while The Fisherman Friend is baked with smoked Burrata cheese, lemon-mayonnaise, baby spinach, smoked salmon, pickled red onion and fresh dill.

Make sure to leave room for dessert, as an authentic Italian dining experience isn’t complete without a large scoop of gelato, and ‘La Famiglia’ has gelato to suit all tastes. There are 13 individual flavours of Ice-cream available, but we recommend opting for one of the sharing-style sundaes, or Le Coppe Gelato Estive, which are available in three different combinations: La Coppa Tropicale – a tropical sundae made from passion fruit, mango and coconut sorbets, topped with caramelised pineapple, fresh strawberry, passion fruit and coconut shaving; La Coppa Cremino – a chocolate cremino sundae with chocolate and vanilla ice-cream, topped with whipped cream, toasted hazelnuts, cremino, chocolate sauce and caramelised cocoa nibs, and La Coppa Toscana – a signature Toscana sundae made with pistachio ice cream, white chocolate, amarena cherries and speculoos, topped with salted caramel sauce,whipped cream, marshmallows and sugar sprinkles).

‘La Famiglia’ is available at Trattoria Toscana from June through to 30th August. For more information, diners can call 04 432 3232 or email: restaurants@jumeirah.com
