Pack your bags, brush up on your Italian, KinoVino is Rome-bound! It is truly wonderful to be able to team up with one of Rome’s most elegant, witty and charming chefs who is currently taking London by storm: Eleonora Galasso. Her debut cookbook As the Romans Do was met with huge acclaim in the UK, and rightly so: not only is it full of incredibly delicious and authentic dishes, it is a fascinating account of Rome’s history, culture and eating habits. The charm and grace of our guest chef could only be matched by that of the Hollywood legend, Audrey Hepburn, and her iconic debut feature film – Roman Holiday. A film that is a true classic of Hollywood romance genre, directed by the giant, William Wyler, paints the most enticing, joyful and charming portrait of Rome, a city steeped in (cinematic) history. The portrayals of Rome on film are indeed endless but it the Rome through the eyes of Audrey Hepburn’s character, Princess Ann, that, we felt, is closest to the vision depicted in Eleonora’s book. It is likely that Princess Ann has been to those cafes, squares and streets, that Eleonora recalls so evocatively in her account. Join us for one night only on this gastro-cinematic journey to one of Europe’s oldest and most characterful cities!

It really is great news when one of your favourite restaurants in London invites you for a collaboration. So when Knightsbridge’s funkiest Russian restaurant – MariVanna – got in touch for a KinoVino partnership, to say that I was very please, would be an understatement. Offering a really good, hearty, home-style Russian food, the restaurant is also famed for it’s wonderfully eclectic decor, that effortlessly mixes classic Russian style with Soviet kitsch and beyond. Half-way between a beautiful pre-Revolutionary dacha and a crammed Soviet communal apartment, the restaurants setting was the departing point for the choice of the event’s theme. As those two periods in Russian history merge so well in the decor, our chosen film and the meal will also reflect the transition moment from Tsarist to Revolutionary Russia. One of the greatest commentators on this period in history was the extraordinary Russian writer, Mikhail Bulgakov. Luckily for us, there is a film adaptation of his novel that matches the genius of his prose – A Dog’s Heart. Set in the early 1920s, it depicts with sharp wit and satire the struggle between the old and the new eras, generations and classes and features some of the most mouth-watering scenes set around a dinner table. 

In this special one-off edition of KinoVino chez MariVanna we invite you to experience the food and the atmosphere of early post-Revolutionary Russia. You will be welcomed with some traditional zakuski, ice-cold vodka, as well as a live DJ performance, spinning the vintage tunes from the era. More vintage music to accompany your post-movie meal, which will include the gastronomic classics of the restaurant with a Revolutionary twist. 

Our menu

Before the film
Open sandwich with ‘krakovskaya’ charcuterie or pickled herring
