WEEK FIFTY-SEVEN MENU: 4/20 - 4/25
Renaissance Masters and Food
Italy boasts some of the longest living citizens in the world. A crucial reason is the Italian diet with its roots in the past. Much like today, food was the cultural center of life in Renaissance Italy. It played an important role in religious holidays and family celebrations and relied heavily on the use of seasonal ingredients. The Italians had some of the best chefs and cooks in Europe at the time.
This week’s menu is an interpretation using ingredients that Italians most certainly enjoyed in the early 16th century, including many fresh aromatics.
WEEK FIFTY-SEVEN WINE
Frascati D.O.C., San Marco 2019
The Estate of San Marco is one of the largest and well-known producers of the Frascati style. Nestled in the foothills surrounding Rome, San Marco rests upon well-drained, mineral-rich volcanic soils. These ideal conditions create the perfect environment for this Trebbiano Malvasia blend. With a nose of fresh Granny Smith apples and a nice grapey undertone followed by distinct floral tones. Light on the pallet with a nice textured feel and a balance between soft fruit and crisp acidity.
FESTA DELLA MAMMA - May 9th
Celebrate "mamma" on her special day!
Whether you are together or apart, share your love by sharing a meal across your tables. Chef Christianne is channeling her female sophisticated touch in this beautiful menu that captures healthy fresh flavors and is designed for the discerning tastes of Mom. We have paired this menu with optional special refreshments and flowers to complete the ultimate Mother's Day package.
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.
