Celebrity Chef To Host Italian Night At Golf Club

Award winning chef Aldo Zilli will be bringing ‘A taste of Italy’ to Hever Castle Golf & Wellbeing diners on Saturday 2nd May.

Guests can enjoy a welcome drink from 7pm followed by a four course sharing menu and a masterclass with Italian chef Aldo for £75 per person.

Aldo said, “I am really excited to bring a bit of Italy to The Waterside at Hever Castle Golf & Wellbeing. Regional fresh and seasonal is what Italian food is all about so please get involved as I will demo some of the menu live on the night.”

The Waterside Bar, Restaurant and Terrace opened in 2019 and offers diners scenic views onto a pond and fountain with a decked area and landscaped grounds.

For those chilly afternoons and evenings, a brick fireplace and traditional log burner provide a cosy setting for a hearty seasonal meal. During the warmer months, the beautiful terrace that overlooks the golf course is the ideal setting to enjoy a beer or a G&T at sunset.

Aldo was introduced to Hever Castle Golf & Wellbeing through a friend of in house osteopath and golf club member, Paul Moody. The chef specialises in Italian, vegetarian and seafood cuisine. One of nine children, he was born in the small seaside town of Alba Adriatica in the central Italian region of Abruzzo and first learnt Italian home cooking from his mother, then catering college.

Aldo was the founder and chef-patron of some of London’s most exciting and innovative restaurants, Signor Zilli, Zilli Green, Zilli Café and Zilli Bar. His Italian seafood restaurant, Zilli Fish, was a Soho institution and had been open for over 15 years until March 2012 when Aldo decided to hang up the chef’s whites and embark on other ventures.

Aldo will be bringing a selection of books for diners to purchase and have signed.

A selection of Italian wines will be available to accompany the meal.
