Italian Home Delivery Service Godo:
GODO is a Michelin-star quality Italian food home delivery brand that launched successfully in the City, Canary Wharf and Mayfair in November 2015. In a rather sexy twist the food is brought to your door by good looking Italians on a Vespa. And, everything is transported in special glass containers to keep it fresh.
I’ve been invited to their pop-up restaurant, ‘House of GODO’ at 90 Piccadilly to meet the Michelin-starred head chef, Tommaso Arrigoni and co-founders Simone Sajeva and Amin Bouafsoun to sample some of their new dishes. They explain about their concept which is to bring in the freshest organic produce from Italy, create delicious simple dishes and get them to your door as quickly as possible.
I taste appetisers including a deliciously fresh and creamy burrata with confit tomatoes and another burrata dish with the mildly bitter cime di rapa leaves adding some vegetal crunch. Soups included a beautifully light minestrone with vegetables that zinged with flavour, GODO’s tasty signature kale, artichoke and Jerusalem artichoke soup and a warming wintertime pumpkin and chestnut soup.
Next up was a plethora of pasta dishes; my favourites were a rich venison ragu with mushrooms and the classic Ligurian dish of Trofie with Pra basil pesto which was totally authentic.
Desserts include a cassata Siciliana with sbrisolona, a pannacotta with blueberry sauce and an Italian crumble-but we tried a rather superior tiramisu made with healthy crème fraiche.
With only three dishes a day on offer with GODO you know you are getting only the freshest produce. Now all I need is that house in Mayfair…
