This Friday, June 15, I will be hosting a special “annotated” dinner at Omero restaurant. The event is organized through Context Travel, and we still six places open.
The menu will feature classic Tuscan dishes, paired with top local wines: an appetizer of crostini with chicken liver and fine affettati misti (cured meats), a primo piatto tasting of pappa al pomodoro, penne al sugo, and fresh ravioli with spinach and ricotta, and for the secondo, classic bistecca alla fiorentina and a grilled chicken, paired with a Nobile di Montepulciano, with a side of fried zucchini flowers and braised white beans, and ending with various dolci fatti in casa, such as a torta di mela, cheesecake, etc., paired with vin santo, naturally.
While we eat, I will be giving some history and context to the food and wine, and answering any questions that come up. In short, it’s going to be extremely fun and festive – and Toscanissimo. The event costs 85 euros per person; if you are interested in joining the dinner, contact Angela Vannucci at email@example.com.
