Winter Warm Up (V8 Edition) 1/24/21

Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food. — Hippocrates, father of medicine, 431 B.C.

January is always one of the most difficult months; too little sun, cold weather and post-holiday-let-down.  But we know that food, wine and interaction with friends can provide some of the most sought-after feelings of well-being…  SO LET’S HAVE DINNER!!!

This month friends from Italy will join us for the Zoom call to talk about their beautiful Sicilian wine, AND we are super fortunate to have Jen Saffron and her Sprezzatura team offer a warm and hearty winter menu to match the equally warm and hearty Italian wines.   When these food-and-friends-and-wine elements combine, we believe our need for well-being will be fulfilled! 

Each purchase includes dinner for TWO PEOPLE, and TWO BOTTLES of wine. If you would like to join us – please purchase, and we will send confirmation and pick up directions.

We will have a Zoom gathering at 6:30pm.

Dinner for Two 
Citrus fennel salad over arugula with oil and black pepper

BOTTLES – yep – TWO BOTTLES – of wine 
For this round Jack has curated two wines from Italy (one white – one red).

  • Red Wine – Firriato ‘Chiaramonte’ Nero d’Avola Sicilia IGT 2017
