Your Bristol Life

Food brings diverse communities together. 

This piece is a brief “listen in” on the sounds of a unique Bristol restaurant group that values family and community. The Bianchi’s Group are an integral part of Bristol’s local food ecology and have a number of restaurants in the city. They respect authenticity and are diverse and innovative, offering Italian-inspired fusion tastes and experiences; they are part of what makes Bristol one of the most exciting places to eat.

This experimental audio piece acknowledges the multicultural migrant families that came to these shores and kindly introduced us to new and sensational foods, and includes interviews with CEO Dominic Bianchi Borel and head chef Joseph Harvey.
