The Italian Job

September 5, 2012

Many, many, many moons ago we did a website for Azzurro Restaurant in West Didsbury. Things move on though – we’ve moved on. Azzurro has moved on. And now it’s time for the website to move on…

It’s no secret that we love Azzurro. Not only are Emil & Anna our clients, they are also our friends. And in re-designing the website, we wanted to be able to showcase what a fab restaurant our friends run. So what better way to start the process than invite our friend, photographer Jonny Draper, to shoot the evening?

Anna & Emil created a three course menu of their signature dishes and a lovely group of friends got together for a very lovely evening. Jonny was on hand to photograph some amazing dishes which were coming out of the kitchen – carpaccio, stuffed sardines, fresh mussels, seafood linguine, slow cooked Tuscan style lamb stew, char-grilled sirloin steak… Sorry, we can’t reveal “official” photos just yet, as they’ll come with the website, but thankfully, Sian was on hand with the trusty Canon to capture some sneaky peeks…

We don’t want to give too much away as we’ll be starting work on the website very soon, but these were just a few of the Twitter comments we picked up after the event…

"Just been to @azzurrodidsbury, verdict..." @rmcgandara
