ATC are delighted to inform you that Italia in Piazza, the Real Italian Food Market will be visiting Old Amersham on Sunday 14th May 2017.
…… Just imagine a few delicate slices of bresaola on a bed of rocket salad, shavings of the best parmesan and a drizzle of the finest extra virgin olive oil.
On the side perhaps some olives individually stuffed by hand with garlic cloves and a sea salt focaccia bread with a cream of balsamic dip!….DELICIOUS!!

Pop along between 9.30am and 4.30pm on 14 May and you’ll be able to try most of these and many more ingredients
