Book an Experience

Family and food have always be irrevocably intertwined for Big Spoon Group executive chef, Leigh Marino. His southern Italian heritage has always shaped his career and food philosophy.

While Leigh spent much of his early career working in technique driven fine dining,  including training under world renowned Italian chef Carlo Cracco in Milan; his passion for cooking rustic shared food has been especially heightened since settling down and starting a family of his own.

With an appreciation for both the simple and sublime dishes of Italy, Leigh will share his ultimate Italian Christmas feast - high on flavour and light on pretence.

Leigh will expertly guide you through a menu of his favourite Southern Italian Christmas dishes including:

  • Marinated seafood antipasti

  • Hand made Pasta Forno with egg and mozzarella

  • Polpetti with pecorino and parsley

  • Spaghetti Vongole 

  • Braciole with pine nuts and currants
