Please join me for a supper pairing the authentic foods and wines of Tuscany.
I will be preparing a five-course meal of traditional Tuscan dishes to be served in my Italian-inspired garden.
Each dish will be accompanied by a specially selected wine imported from the Tuscan region of northern Italy. We will eat, drink, socialize, and learn more about the culture of Tuscany as we discuss and enjoy the food and wine pairings alfresco, where they taste the best.
We will eat, drink, socialize, and learn more about the culture of Sicily as we discuss and enjoy the food and wine pairings alfresco, where they taste the best.
PLEASE RSVP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE
*Unfortunately, the supper can seat no more or fewer than sixteen guests and the large response to past events has made it necessary to turn a number of people away.
