CA'BIANCA REGIONAL DINNER
REGION OF VENETO
Wednesday, July 10, 2013
Join us for a four-course tasting menu featuring authentic specialties from Veneto.
Veneto is one of Italy’s northernmost regions, lying along the coast of the Adriatic sea. Its cooking has exotic and exciting influences from around the world. From seafood and livestock to produce, the Veneto cuisine is widely varied. Radicchio rosso, for example, is prized for its use in rice dishes, grilled as a vegetable, cooked into soups or eaten raw in salads.
Each course is paired with exclusive, handcrafted, native varietal wines from premier producers in the region including Paolo Zucchetto Prosecco from Valdobbiandene, and Fabio Corsi's Valpolicella of Le Marognole.
All wines are imported by Chigazola Merchants of Santa Rosa, and are presented by Ca'Bianca sommelier, Alessandra Diana.
