Wine Dinner: Vini e Brasati at Toscana Kitchen + Bar

This Wednesday, March 7, 2007, I'll be hosting a dinner at Wilmington, Delaware's Toscana Kitchen + Bar. The event, Vini e Brasati, will focus on one of my favorite seasonal cooking techniques -- braising -- and a selection of wines from northern Italy, with a focus on Piedmont. Proprietor Dan Butler and his team of chefs at Toscana always kick the creativity up a notch for these events. And they keep the pricing very reasonable: $75 per person, all inclusive. For five courses, matched wines and tip, that's a sweet deal. The reception starts at 6:00 PM, followed by seating for dinner at 6:30. For a full description of the menu or to make a reservation, check out

As always, I've chosen the wines with an eye to regional affinity, a progression of style and intensity, and an instinct for flavor, texture and structure in the context of each wine's marriage with each dish. The focus of the event is not didactic. Presentations will be succinct and lively with discussions tailored to the spirit of the audience. Please do join me, and enjoy.
