Ladro StreetSmart SmartMeals

Ladro x SmartMeals DONATE

It’s hard not to feel overwhelmed during the Covid crisis. Looking out for each other, sharing what you have and focusing on what you can do in your local community has kept us grounded at Ladro, thanks to StreetSmart their SmartMeals program.

We’ve been cooking 400 meals a week for vulnerable people impacted by the pandemic, as part of a new pilot program, SmartMeals, brainchild of Adam Robinson – CEO of StreetSmart Australia in response to the Covid crisis.

SmartMeals puts empty hospitality venues to good use with a win-win concept feeding many in need at the same time. It supports venues like Ladro who have supported NFP’s like StreetSmart, for many years.

To say the pilot has been life changing is an understatement. It’s been life saving – business saving. Ladro has been able to keep two full-time chefs employed during the crisis and literally stay afloat – it works like this:

Ladro has been paired with local Fitzroy charity St Mary’s House of Welcome. We cook hundreds of meals for people in need, delivering them daily to the charity. Ladro is paid a small fee to cover food costs and labour with 100% of the fee going towards providing meals to combat homelessness and keep staff employed. It’s simple and brilliant, like all good ideas.

Now is a great time to share what you have. We’re urging anyone who can afford it to donate directly to StreetSmart. It allows us to provide as many meals as possible to feed an ever increasing number of people in need. If you’re in a position to do so, please…

DONATE HERE

We are all in this together and together we can grow this idea beyond the 400 meals Ladro provides. Our dream is to keep this initiative going well beyond the Covid crisis and we need your help to to it.

If you are a food manufacturer, farmer with excess stock, or in a position to sponsor the program, Ladro & StreetSmart would love to hear from you and have a chat. We’re not too proud to ask for help, especially when it helps hundreds more.

THANK YOU to everyone who has supported the program so far. We honestly could not have come this far without you.

MOTHER’S DAY – FOOD BOX

Mother's Day with Ladro 2020

We miss our mums. We’re sure you do too.
Nothing is more comforting than a warm, reassuring mum hug when life challenges us most, and Covid lockdown sure is testing that theory. This weekend most of us have to settle for a warm hug of mama style cooking instead. Thanks for you votes too – the two most popular options are in the boxes.

Ladro has two food box options with 3 x courses for you to reheat at home – brunch, lunch or dinner, for two, four or more. Add to the boxes with Prosecco, Wine, Negroni or fresh items from our LADRO SUPERMARKET.
Every Italian knows: Chi mangia sulo s’affoga – ‘He who eats alone suffocates’… But Covid lockdown wasn’t a consideration until seven weeks ago, so this Mother’s Day we encourage you to share a meal with your mum together, apart. Buon apettito XO

#worldstoughestjob MOTHERS DAY

Ladro Sophia Loren Mothers Day

We challenge you to watch #worldstoughestjob and not feel compelled to give their mama a giant hug! Treat her this Mothers Day… and everyday after!

Ask your mama what she wants to do this Mothers Day…Here’s what our mama’s want more than anything in the world:

– “SLEEP”
– “lunch with the family”

We asked our mama’s what their favourite dishes are. Not surprisingly they said: pizza, roast, bubbles and chocolate came up A LOT!
So these are the extra special mama loving dishes we are serving alongside our usual menu this Mothers Day. Be sure to make a booking and your mama can enjoy feasting on our mum’s favourite dishes too.

VEGAN MOZZARELLA? YES!

Vegan mozzarella at Ladro.

Who doesn’t love pizza? Stupid question, of course everyone does. But for some of us, a delicious cheesy pizza is a disaster waiting to happen, for others omitting dairy is simply a lifestyle choice. Now those who can’t eat dairy and those who choose not to, can enjoy feasting on a Ladro pizza without missing out….on the chesse!
Ladro has introduced an amazing handmade vegan mozzarella to the menu, available in both Fitzroy and Prahran for your pizza feasting pleasure.

What’s the cheese?

Traditional mozzarella is made from buffalo milk and cows milk, hand formed into milky balls of curd – when fresh it’s hard not to eat them like apples! Okay, so vegan mozzarella it’s not made from buffalo or cows milks and doesn’t have that same stringy, stretchy, cheesiness we all love, but we reckon it’s the next best thing to the real deal. Our vegan mozzarella is soy based and melts like real cheese with the consistency of real mozzarella. Queen Margherita would be quietly chuffed and happily serve our vegan mozzarella on her namesake pizza.
If you want to experiment making your own vegan cheese, take a look at Julie Piatt’s book “This Cheese is Nuts”.

Feed Me Vegan Menus?

Ladro can also offer vegan Feed Me Menus based on our extremely popular Feed Me $45, $55 and $65 per head options. Simply inform us when you book your next function or event at Ladro and we will devise a seasonal menu for your entire group. Our pizza dough is vegan, as long as you are ok with yeast. We don’t use any animal products in preparation of the Ladro pizza dough and embrace traditional slow proving methods develop our award winning Roman style pizzas. Roman pizzas, unlike their Napoli cousins, are thinner and crispier with an ‘al dente cornicione’, or firm to the bite pizza edge/ crust.

Gluten Free Pizza

We also offer gluten free pizza at Ladro in Fitzroy and Prahran. Our gluten free pizza dough is made in the same traditional method as our conventional pizzas, with yeast and a small amount of extra virgin olive oil, from soya, tapioca, corn and rice flours. We introduced gluten free pizzas 6 years ago at Ladro due to the high incidence of gluten intolerance amongst the Italian population. So if you happen to be a gluten free vegan, we’ve got all the bases covered!
