Sauce Day

Sauce Day by Rosetta Ristorante returns to Alfred Place with Neil Perry

Sauce Day is as much a celebration of new season tomatoes as it is the Italian community; a day where families and friends gather to make, bottle and preserve tomato passata to stock their cupboards for the rest of the year.

Neil Perry and Head Chef of Rosetta Ristorante Paul Easson, will gather the ripest of local tomatoes and invite you to gather at Alfred Place for a communal sauce bottling fiesta.

The team will teach you a little about the tradition behind Sauce Day and share some inside tips for turning your bottled tomatoes into delicious sugo and passata which can form a base to your home made Italian dishes.

Following this, we invite you to take a seat at our communal tables as Neil and Paul create a shared Italian feast featuring passata and sugo in each dish and matched to a glass of Victorian wine.

You will take home your bottled tomatoes as well as a recipe card from the chef.
