Mezzanino Events - 'in over 14 years, we have never worked with a more professional, caring and detail-focused crew than Mezzanino’s'

TESTIMONIAL

'We recently held our Annual Awards Dinner at Mezzanino. I can safely say, in over 14 years,  we  have never worked with a more professional, caring and detail-focused crew than Mezzanino’s. Nothing was too much trouble, they made suggestions which helped us make the event more special, and the setup, food, atmosphere, wine and service were absolutely superb on the night. Every little detail was taken care of, everything ran 100% on time and exactly as expected even down to very specific and limiting dietary restrictions. Everyone loved the rustic and cosy Italian atmosphere. Their cleanliness and security was also fantastic. They made our staff’s lives so much easier, and we even got to enjoy the event for a change!

Thank you!  Bon appetit!  Sandra, TheChefsToolbox'

The beautiful first floor sunlit room is perfect for large tables and private events.

Dry July. Something to drink when you’re not drinking.at Fourth Village & Danks Street

We’ve solved the problem of interesting things to drink in Dry July when you get bored with water

Fourth Village Providore with the Merchants has these drinks in stock

First, McIlhenny Spicy Tabasco Bloody Mary Mix: that’s tomato juice, Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce, garlic, cloves, anchovies, celery extract and chilli – leave out the vodka and what you’ve got is a Virgin Mary.

Then Kombucha, made by adding specific strains of bacteria, yeast and sugar to black or green tea, and then allowing it to ferment for a week or more. Not just refreshing but a rich source of probiotics.

We carry two brands. Remedy and Mojo in flavours including ginger and lemon and turmeric ginger and carrot. It tastes terrific so you can stay dry and get healthy.

And finally juices, from Vegpress raw beet and carrot and ginger, and also a100 sour cherry juice.

Dry July just got funner. Only at Fourth Village Providore at Danks Street Produce Merchants

And you won’t find this quality at these prices anywhere else in Sydney.

Paella, Wine tasting & Vina cotta making - This Weekend

It’s an Italian secret. It’s Vino cotto. See it made.

This Saturday at the Merchants 11 am t0 2.30 pm we’re crushing the grapes and cooking them to make Fourth Village Vino cotto, an agrodolce (sweet and sour) condiment. What can you do with it? It’s actually more a question of what you can’t do with it.  

Use it to deglaze the pan when you fry meat or fish and you’ll have a syrupy sauce to pour over the finished dish.
Drizzle it on fresh cheese
Pour it over gelato
Pour it over baby beets before roasting them in olive oil.
Also pour it over figs, apricots plums or quinces before roasting them.
Macerate strawberries in it and then serve them with mascarpone.
Or drizzle it over a radicchio salad

Come to the Merchants this Saturday and see it made and used. You’ll wonder how you lived without Vino cotto

The Pines Milk now available at Fourth Village Providore Waterloo

 

The Pines Milk: from biodynamically farmed cows

Some of you may have stayed at The Pines, a working dairy farm in Kiama which has been operated by the same family since 1854, and which which also offers farm stays.

Now Fourth Village Waterloo stock the luscious, minimally processed milk from their Holstein herd, bottled on the farm. Let them explain how it is made:

‘We use minimal processing, ensuring the taste and structural integrity of the milk is as nature intended. Every step is done on farm - from milking our cows twice a day, using a slow speed pump to transfer the milk, batch pasteurising at lower temperatures (65°C) before rapidly cooling and bottling by hand. We don’t Homogenise our milk – meaning the cream still rises to the top.  By doing things on farm we can ensure you get the freshest, safest and tastiest milk available.’

Always at Fourth Village Providore at Danks Street Produce Merchants. Where you find the best food, at the best price.

End of 2017 harvest olive oil pressing in Danks Street this weekend

The last of the olives from the 2017 harvest, picked at Fourth Village Estate (the Quattroville family farm at Pokolbin in the Hunter Valley), will be pressed on the floor of the Danks Street Produce Merchants daily on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 May.

This crop will mainly be Frantoio olives as they take longer to ripen. Will there be any difference from the earlier season oil?

“The olives will be riper” Peter Quattroville reported from the estate, “so the oil will be slightly more mellow, but they’ll still have that terrific fresh green flavour you only get from just pressedoil.”

As happened at the beginning of the season, the olives will be delivered fresh from the farm and then tipped into our centrifugal olive press. Then out will pour fresh, green first press olive oil, ready to be tasted, savoured, bottled, and bought. Join us on the market floor to see the olives being pressed and to taste the oil as it pours out.

Phone 02 8123 1120 for restaurant reservations.

For further information, media bookings and private tours contact: please contact Dominic Quattroville / Ben Quinn at 0418 833 118 or email at danks@producemerchants.com.au.
