North is providing some escape as we leer into summer with a dinner series that hopes to provide a taste tour of Italy. This Wednesday, Aprill 22, chef Carlos Calderon will head the event with a four course meal inspired by Piedmont.
Since the region is known for its wine first and foremost, but also among food lovers as a hub of avant garde technique melded with hearty traditions, chef Calderon will have plenty to work with as he explores Piedmont. Each of the four courses in the meal will be paired with a beverage.
Here's the menu:
Olive Oil Poached Tuna, Roasted Peppers, Anchovie Gremolata, Sea Salt
Gorganzola Dolce & Potato, Crispy Radicchio, Barbera Wine Reduction
Vitello Brasato al Barolo
Barolo Braised Veal, Roasted Mushrooms, Polenta, Barolo Jus
Chocolate and Nutella Budino, Caramel, Amaretti Cookie
The dinner is $55 and will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday at 2995 E. Skyline Dr. You can make your reservation in person or by calling 299-1600.
