WEEK NINETY-SEVEN MENU: January 25-30, 2022
Trentino-Alto Adige: Where the Mediterranean Meets the Alps
Some call it the sunny side of the Alps, others call it Trentin-Südtirol, and others Trentino-Alto Adige. It is extremely mountainous, covering a large part of the Dolomites and Southern Alps. The interesting historical past makes the region unique, neither completely Austrian nor Italian. It is a place where Austrian charm mingles with the stylish Italian flair.
This week’s menu will be a departure from the well-known dishes of the South – and interesting combination of the cuisines of two cultures.
WEEK NINETY-SEVEN WINE
Alois Lageder, Terra Alpina, Pinot Bianco 2020
Trentino – Alto Adige is one of Italy’s smallest wine growing regions, yet due to its geographical position, it is most multifaceted. Alois Lageder is one of its premier wineries. It’s Pinot Bianco, Terra Alpina is approachable and pleasantly plush on the palate. It is a white grape variety most associated with the Alsace region of France. It was born out of the mutation of the pink skinned Pinot Gris and tastes similar to Chardonnay.
EVERY SUNDAY: Prime Rib Sunday Supper
Our Sunday night Prime Rib Supper is designed to deliver good, solid comfort food to nurture both the flesh and the spirit. We slow-roast our herb-crusted prime rib for hours, and serve it sliced thick with a rich beef jus reduction and crispy steak fries, fresh salad, rosemary focaccia and our Tuscan tiramisu. We are also offering three tiers of wine that go beautifully with supper. Enjoy!
EVERY SUNDAY: Fried Chicken Meal
At our little Trattoria in Tuscany we were famous for our "Pollo Fritto," fried chicken. The Florentines would drive out to visit us in the country on the weekends and we would always sell out. I am proud to say that my American friends and customers (even those from the South!) seem to have also fallen in love with my recipe so I am starting a new tradition. On Sundays I will be frying up my recipe -- this time for the Washingtonians.
And now we have perfected a Gluten-Free version that is equally delicious and have created an entire menu that is gluten-free to accompany.
