Wine dinner August 25: Siena Goes to the Beach!
Above: The seafood in Tuscany is abundant. I took this photo at the local fish monger where I used to shop when I lived, studied, and worked as a chef in Italy.
Siena Goes to the Beach
Wednesday, August 25, 7 p.m.
$59 per person
Come join us as we present the lighter side of Tuscan cuisine. Five courses prepared especially by Chef Harvey and paired with five white wines.
TO RSVP, PLEASE CALL (512) 349-7667.
When we think of Tuscan cuisine, images of bistecca alla fiorentina (Tuscan porterhouse steak), wild boar, Tuscan Prosciutto, sheep’s milk Pecorino cheese, and red wine come to mind. But Tuscany is also a seafood lover’s dream: from Livorno to Orbetello along the Tuscan Mediterranean coastline (known as the Maremma), the seafood is abundant and DELICIOUS!
In August, the Tuscans head to the beach for their summer vacation. Just like in Toscana, the heat of our Texas summer calls for lighter foods, including seafood paired with crisp, fresh white wines. We are pleased to announce the next event in our series of wine dinners, “Siena Goes to the Beach.”
