If you've ever been to Venice, you'll know all about bàcari. If you haven't, you should, but that's besides the point. Anyway, bàcari are small, bistro-style restaurants serving beautifully presented snack plates of fresh, colourful meat, fish and bread dishes called cicchetti, accompanied by (you guessed it) wine.
Turns out this concept works pretty well in London, too (who'd've thought it?), and one such place is Augustus Harris in Covent Garden. To get a taste of a bàcaro at home, follow its recipe for porchetta, taleggio and herb sauce crostini below.
