Join us for our Annual Classic Italian Dinner celebrating the tastes of Italy. This annual event is part of our Culinary Club Series at Bistro Etc. Enjoy an authentic Four-Course Italian Menu prepared by Chef Karen who will also present an Optional Wine Pairing featuring wines thoughtfully selected to pair with each course.
Antipasti: Mozzarella en Carozza ~ “mozzarella in a carriage”
Preparation: We sandwich soft white bread around sliced fresh mozzarella, which is then slightly egg dipped and sautéed until golden brown on the outside and beautifully melted on the inside. We drizzle all of this with a velvety sauce of capers, lemon, olive oil and just a touch of anchovy to round it out.
Primo: Spaghetti Carbonara
Preparation:Fresh pasta is tossed with a mixture of browned guanciale, egg and Pecorino Romano cheese to make a smooth and silky sauce, then we add a few grounds of fresh black pepper for a light spicy touch.
Secondo: Braciole ~ Braised Beef Rolls
Preparation: Thin slices of beef sirloin are bundled together with a savory mixture of fresh parsley, toasted garlic, Parmesan cheese, raisins, and toasted pignolis, then seared until crispy brown. They are braised in a rich tomato sauce until fork tender, garnished with roasted wild mushrooms & broccoli rabe.
Dolce: Zeppole ~ Etc Style
A crisp fried dough coated in powdered sugar served alongside a scoop of dark chocolate zabaglione gelato and a crisp Pizzelle Cookie.
