The Best of Italy --------------------$28

The Italian region of Emiglia-Romagna includes Parma, Modena, Bologna and has given the world lasagne, tortellini, bolognese sauce, Parmigiano-Reggiano, balsamic vinegar, mortadella and Giuseppe Verdi. The Po Valley is the agricultural center of northern Italy, with wheat, tomatoes, and vegetables in abundance. Sit down to this dinner featuring the region's superstar ingredients and four classic dishes.

 

Radicchio w gorgonzola and walnuts -- deep crimson bittersweet chicory leaves with a wedge of tangy craft cheese and                                                                      crunchy walnuts, dusted with cracked black pepper and drizzled with our best EVOO.

 

Ravioli al balsamico--  egg pasta handmade with 00 flour from Ferraro,  

                                    filled with a mixture of swiss chard and ricotta, dressed with

          butter, shallots, a kiss of aged balsamico andimported Parmigiano-Reggiano. 

 

Roasted Filled Mushroom -- white mushroom cap with parsley, mortadella,

                     Parmigiano-Reggiano, homemade breadcrumbs, garlic and olive oil.

 

Apple Torta -- a classic not-too-sweet, super moist and apple-y golden cake.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You're in Parma, birthplace of Giuseppe Verdi!

Make it a Night at the Opera.

Wines: Prosecco for opening and closing the meal,  a nice Sangiovese like a Chianti Classico with the ravioli.  Non alcohol option: Bubbly water with a shot of pomegranate juice with nice tannins to play with the butter sauce.

Stream the Opera Gold album on Pandora while you eat.

Movies: Ronnie rocks Loretta's world when he takes her to see her first live opera, La Boheme, in Moonstruck.

If you're feeling adventurous, try a real Verdi opera. For beginners, Rigoletto is full of recognizable music. There's a 1982 film version with Luciano Pavarotti available on Amazon Prime. Or you can watch the actual opera at the Met in New York City filmed for Great Performances, season 38 from RMPBS.

North by Northwest -------------------$25

 A few years ago, I was visiting an old friend in Seattle.  Tim brought me to a brewery and restaurant in the Ballard District.  We threw darts, drank fresh beer and caught up with each other.  As the late afternoon turned to evening, we ventured into the restaurant, were seated at a window offering a view of Lake Union.  Picking up the menu I found wonderful looking pub style meals.  The one that grabbed my attention was Honey Porter Cod,  roasted wild-caught cod basted with a honey and porter beer mix.  It was incredible!  Not knowing their recipe, I went on a search for one and was surprised to find several different recipes.  Mine is a bit of a mix of them all.

 

Honey Porter Cod -- Baked wild-caught Alaskan cod, marinated and sauced with a creative

                                    combination of herbs, honey and craft porter. 

 

Potato Cakes -- crunchy shredded potatoes cooked golden brown.

 

Columbia Salad -- variety lettuces and veggies in a tangy vinaigrette to refresh your palate.

 

Caramelized Apples -- buttery caramelized chunks of Washington state apples with a

                                       dollop of creme fraiche.

 

A Colorado Craft Beer is always a good choice for a dinner like this, but a good Oregon Pinot Noir would be a fun choice.  I know it’s fish, but it is heavy enough to handle a Pinot.

 

As Seattle is the Grunge capital of the world you can always find some Nirvana, Pearl Jam or Alice in Chains to take you back to the 90’s.  Although did you know that Jimi Hendrix and Robert Cray were both from Seattle?  And for the folkie in you, Woody Guthrie’s Roll on Columbia is the official Washington State Folk Song!  For some Jazz, Quincy Jones, Buddy Catlett, Kenny G and Esperanza Spalding are all Seattle-ites. 

 

How about a movie?  North by Northwest with Cary Grant, or perhaps Spencer Tracy in Northwest Passage.  How about a romantic comedy with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan?  Sleepless in Seattle!

 

Enjoy…

Reference for your convenience

Weekend in the Hamptons         --------------------------------------------------$26

Imagine the sound of the water, the grasses tinged with the colors of fall.

Take a walk out to the point to look at the lighthouse and then come back,

appetite aroused, and enjoy a relaxing dinner made with organic local

ingredients.

 

Hampton Chicken  --  healthy and light. Boneless chicken, pan seared in a

little butter and olive oil, flavored with rosemary, garlic and pepper,  finished

in a splash of white wine.

 

Garlic & Oregano Roasted Potatoes -- crispy outside and soft inside, with a touch of sea salt and lemon.

 

Castles Salad -- hearts of Romaine with bits of crispy bacon, shaved parmigiano, eggs mimosa, baguette croutons and creamy black pepper vinaigrette

 

Chocolate Mousse -- a smooth, rich and airy chocolate dream.

Make a Night of It....

Pair with Dry sparkling Lavender with a squeeze of lemon and

a sprig of thyme.

A chilled Viognier would be perfect or a good California Pinot Noir.

Let Billy Joel play and sing for you during dinner.

 

After dinner extend your getaway to Long Island with the 1954 film

Sabrina starring Audrey Hepburn. It is an absolute winner! 

If you like Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton, Something’s Gotta Give

is a romantic comedy worth a watch.

Havana Hideaway --------------------------------------------------------$24

Cuba lies just 90 miles from Key West where we were introduced to the food and the music as kids. Tropical ingredients, African influences and cooking on island time make a tasty, colorful change of pace.

 

Mojo Pork  -- slow cooked pork loin in a rich citrus-y mojo sauce layered with garlic

and oregano.
 

Black Beans and Rice --  extra virgin olive oil, garlic, onions and mild green chilis

kick up this traditional duo.

 

Cuban Flan  -- silky vanilla custard with caramel makes a sweet finish.

Make a Night of It...

White Bordeaux or a Sauvignon Blanc will pair nicely. Or choose a Colorado craft beer.

For the no-alcohol option,  choose San Pellegrino's Essenza Limone or Aranciata.

Cuban music is the best! Stream the Rumba Cubana Radio on Pandora.

After dinner, get up and move and your dinner will be calorie-negative!

 

Buena Vista Social Club is a documentary about Cuban musicians shot in Havana

and the music  is absolutely terrific!

The Birdcage is set in Miami’s Little Havana and is a gem of a movie, with Robin Williams, Nathan Lane and a hilarious Hank Azaria.

Just for fun even though Havana is just a mention, watch Guys and Dolls.
