SET THE SCENE

delicious - - I’M LOVING -

STYLE

While lunch high­lighted Florentino’s bold, modern and strik­ing de­sign ele­ments, “when we en­ter­tain at home it’s al­ways sim­ple”, Guy says. “Lots of lovely food served pretty rus­tic. That’s both what we like to eat and how we like to cook.”

MENU

‘What we serve tends to vary,” ex­plains Guy, “but the cala­mari ragu with pasta makes a reg­u­lar ap­pear­ance and is al­ways a high­light.” But it’s not just savoury nib­bles on the menu for the Grossi clan. “Luck­ily my wife Melissa loves bak­ing,” Guy ad­mits, “and we all love to eat it!”

PLAYLIST

“Carlo (Guy’s son) tends to take over the mu­sic,” Guy ad­mits. “As DJ he plays plenty of crowd favourites; ’70s-type num­bers and disco tend to be a hit.”

DRINKS

“There is al­ways plenty of wine,” laughs Guy. “Chardon­nay is my favourite, but there’s some beau­ti­ful Aus­tralian chi­anti and san­giovese that of­ten makes an ap­pear­ance. And there are al­ways Ital­ian wines, too, of course.”
