Maurizio Cecco of Salvi’s recently found himself on the roof of Manchester Cathedral surrounded by beehives…
Nope, this isn’t the beginning of a joke, but rather the start of a real labour of love project joining Salvi’s and Manchester Cathedral together to add an Italian twist to the Cathedral’s very own organic Heavenly Honey, which is produced on the roof of Manchester Cathedral.
The honey produced by Manchester Cathedral is sold to raise funds for the Cathedral’s volunteer project Volition, which aims to support unemployed people in Manchester, by building confidence and providing a variety of development opportunities.
After learning about the incredible work that the Cathedral and Volition do together for the community, Salvi’s wanted to get involved! So after teetering up to the Cathedral spires to meet the bee’s and having a chat with Anthony O’Connor and Dean Rogers the Salvi’s team came up with a rotation of very special dishes made exclusively with Heavenly Honey such as…
– Beetroot ravioli filled with ricotta and honey in a roasted pine nut, honey and pancetta sauce.
– Struffoli with honey and sugar.
– Parma ham with figs and honey.
– Bruschetta with gorgonzola and honey sauce.
The Heavenly Honey will also be stocked in the Salvi’s Deli located in the Corn Exchange and will be available in the exclusive Salvi’s Christmas Hampers.
