WEEK TWENTY-SEVEN MENU: SEPTEMBER 22-26
On the hunt...mushroom madness!
Foraging for mushrooms is an essential part of autumn in Tuscany. This time of year it’s all about mushrooms, hunting them, eating them and talking about them. The exhilaration of the hunt – the thrill of discovering and picking wild mushrooms in an Italian forest is something I will never forget. This week’s menu highlights homemade pasta with assorted mushrooms and other Tuscan seasonal ingredients.
WEEK TWENTY-SEVEN WINE: A 91 point stunner
Mediterra, Poggio al Tesoro, Allegrini 2017
(Syrah, Cabernet, Merlot blend) Wine Spectator: 91 points
Poggio al Tesoro is Marilisa Allegrini’s property in Bolgheri, on the Tuscan coast. It is here that she works with international varietals in the Super Tuscan tradition. Ruby red in color, with purple tints, this is a fragrant and intensely fruity wine, in which blackberry, plum and cherry are underpinned by spicy notes of white pepper and elegant herbaceous aromas
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.
Each $29 serving comes with:
* 3 big pieces of juicy and crispy fried chicken (dark and white meat mix only)
* Polenta Corn Pudding
* Summer Garden Salad with my EVOO vinaigrette
* Freshly baked chocolate chip cookie
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. Orders must be placed by 5pm Saturday. Enjoy!
