Mini Burrata topped with Heirloom Tomato Relish
Paired with Alla Spina Via Weiss
Burrata are a specialty of Apuglia, Italy. They are a very special handmade mozzarella with the addition of a stracchiatella (creamy curd). They are very delicate and eaten very fresh. Makes a great compliment tossed over hot maccheroni.
White Gigante Bean Puree topped with Roasted Tomatoes Divina
Olive Oil Marinated White Tuna with Marinated Artichokes
White Flott Anchovie over Watercress
Paired with Golden Monkey
Bruschetta is typically an appetizer that is usually made with the leftovers from the last couple of evenings stretched out by placing on top of toasted day old bread. This Bruschetta is topped with traditional antipasti items.
DiBruno Brothers Hot Soppressatta, Cerignola Olives and Black Label Sharp Provolone
Paired with Headwaters Pale Ale
Soppressatta is a cured salame that was created before there was refrigeration. Curing meats and vegetables was a way to preserve the foods through the winter months. This course is a compilation of cured (or aged) items.
Trofie Pasta Napoleon
Dressed with Kennett Square button mushrooms and IGP Toscano Olive Oil topped
with Grated Fulvi Pecorino Cheese and fresh basil and oregano
Paired with Festbier
Trofie pasta is very tradition in southern Italy where it is made by hand curling the dough on a fine wire. Tuscan olive oil has a big flavor, which compliments this dish by adding a peppery finish, while the very traditional Fulvi Pecorino takes the place of the salt.
River Glenn Duck Breast Prosciutto with Umbria Chick Peas and Lentils
Paired with Baltic Thunder
The locally cured duck prosciutto is the perfect addition to these lentils & chick peas which come from the mountain sides of Umbria.
Birchrun Blue Cheese Cake topped with Amarena Cherries and Shaved Dark Chocolate
Paired with Storm King
Sue Miller’s Birchrun Blue is as rustic a cheese as any blue coming out of Italy. The rind is the key to the developing flavors in this cheese. The hidden flavors within the cheese will be drawn out by adding the amarena cherries and shaved chocolate.
