This exclusive tasting experience will open you up to brand new flavours as we showcase our latest discoveries from micro-producers across Italy and Japan.

For the past 20 years, we’ve been supplying some of London’s top restaurants with the finest Italian and Japanese ingredients, some of which you will get to discover in this tasting. Everyone from Alain Ducasse to Michel Roux Jr rely on Vallebona to provide exceptional produce.

About your host, Table @ Vallebona
We warmly welcome you to Vallebona. We are Stefano and Naoko and we have been delighting our clients for over twenty years, from humble beginnings in Borough Market, to our wonderful Vallebona HQ in Wimbledon and our pop-up store in Coal Drops Yard.
At the centre of our flourishing business, is our passion for sourcing exceptional ingredients and sharing them with our clients in a variety of ways:
From The River Café to Le Gavroche; Vallebona has been supplying top chefs across the UK for many years.
Vallebona chefs provide bespoke catering services to our business clients, from staff lunches to in-house client entertaining.
Private parties are a speciality, we can offer a unique entertaining space at Vallebona HQ in SW19 and Coal Drops Yard.
Our secret, is the time we invest in working alongside a small and select number of exceptional producers, from the hills of Piemonte to the pastures of Sardinia.
We support craftsmen who are passionate about what they produce. For generations we have found independent farmers and family run businesses throughout Italy and Japan and will never source from large corporations. Relationships are at the heart of our business, and we have been working with most of our producers for decades. They are now our best friends!
We are always on the lookout for food heroes who take pride in their artwork and produce the best in their region. Franco (one of my cheese producers) has worked by my side seeking micro producers and cheese makers in the Alps between Italy and France since the very beginning of Vallebona. I call him my cheese mentor. Another great example is Giacomo, our steak and sausage supplier is the 4th generation of a family butchers creating the best Finocchiona and fennel sausages throughout Tuscany.
Buying from Vallebona not only helps our small family business grow but helps many small independent farmers throughout Italy, and now Japan. It leads to a more sustainable and longer life.
