Is there anything to look forward to on Mondays? Thanks to Love, Tilly Devine, now there is: lasagne. Chef Harry Levy's pork and veal lasagne with rosemary-infused sofrito, to be exact.
From July 2 to September 3, the Darlinghurst wine bar will be pairing slices of its lasagne with a glass of organic red for $25, every Monday night. The catch? There are only nine slices available each week. So, we suggest heading in as soon as the doors open at 5pm to beat the crowd of vino and pasta aficionados and secure a coveted piece.
Chef Harry Levy has been working on his bolognese recipe since he was a teen, in an attempt to replicate his mum's, and it features a slew of tasty ingredients — veal, porcini mushrooms and a creation he calls "chilli guy" (chilli and garlic).
Levy says lasagne is perfect for winter (and gloomy Mondays) because "it's comforting and nostalgic". We agree.
While the brand of wine will change each week, it will always be an organic drop from the wine bar's extensive list. Expect bold reds and funky drops, such as a cabernet franc from Yarra Valley's Blood Moon winery.
