Our weekly weekend dinner package. Join us as we travel to an OSTERIA in MILAN. One of the richest, most overlooked culinary scenes in Italy. We visit the fashion capital of Italy - MILAN, known for it's chic wine bars, casual osterias and very fine food shops.
Despite being one of the major cities of Italy, Milan has culinary traditions that are distinct from Rome, Florence, Bologna and other cities and regions to the south. Milan's geographic location, in northwestern Italy near the border with Switzerland, and closer to France and Austria than it is to Tuscany, has tremendous influence over its cuisine. While olive oil and tomato sauce form the base of much of the food of the rest of Italy, Milan's cuisine is dominated by rice, cornmeal polenta, butter, and other forms of dairy.
WINE PAIRINGS: NEBBIOLO "Botonero", Mamete Prevostini, Lombardia - $30 (red wine)
NEBBIOLO from one of the original growing areas and now some of the rarest. From the mountainous region of Valtellina, this wine starts with red cherries, berries and currants, leading into Nebbiolo’s tell-tale floral flavours of violets and roses. Valtellina Nebbiolo is so in tune with what many of us want: fresh, pure, expressive, ready to drink nebbiolo.
FRANCIACORTA BRUT, Contadi Castaldi, Lombardia - $50 ADD ON
Italy's answer to CHAMPAGNE. The finest traditional method sparkling of Italy and produced an hour outisde of Milan along beautiful Lake Iseo. A bottle of liquid sunshine. The nose is fresh with floral notes and lime, while on the palate the wine is full bodied yet crisp with a lingering finish. A very classy sipper that pairs with your antipasto to dinner.
Conveniently packaged to re-heat and serve with a few additions if you wish to add those on. Please order by 4pm on Thursday.
