Venetian Five-Course Tasting Menu Workshop

Date(s) - 06/22/2019
12:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Event Details

The Venetian Tasting Menu workshop celebrates the way of cooking, eating and enjoying life in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region located at the north east of Italy. My family originally comes from this region and I spent considerable time there during my wine life.

This workshop includes both hands-on and demonstration instruction of the recipes, as well as education about the wines and foods of Friuli Venezia Giulia. While the recipes are authentic Venetian, in keeping with my ONTALIA philosophy “Italian Roots in Local Soil” the majority of ingredients will be sourced in PrinceEdwardCounty. Complimentary tasting wines will be exclusively from MASI, a leading wine producer located in Valpolicella.

As customary, a little musical folklore on the acoustic guitar is included!
