celebration of the start of spring, La Primavera is marked in Italy with flower and food festivals that take place during ‘Festa della Primavera’. This year, Peroni Nastro Azzurro brought La Primavera to Dublin with a two-day pop-up market in Temple Bar’s Meeting House Square on March 30th and 31st that was open to the public. Some of Dublin’s finest Italian eateries and artisan food suppliers unveiled seasonal offerings at the market. Participating eateries included Luna, Dublin Pizza Company, and A Mano, a specialist pop-up dedicated to fresh, handmade gnocchi. Luna served its Italian salume, while seasonal Irish and Italian produce formed the basis of the wood-fired Neapolitan pizza from Dublin Pizza Company. A Mano dished up handmade, fresh gnocchi, served with sauces made using locally-sourced meats and seasonal vegetables. Peroni Nastro Azzurro global brand ambassador, Dublin-based Federico Riezzo, designed a special Peroni infusion to celebrate La Primavera, which he served at the bar. The La Primavera infusion combined Peroni Nastro Azzurro, gin, dry Martini, elderflower cordial, chamomile and thyme syrup, orange blossom and lemon juice. It was garnished with a spring bouquet and finished with black pepper and jasmine oil. Peroni Nastro Azzurro on draught and bottles of Peroni Gluten Free were also available at the market.
