Growing up in a large, eclectic family in an Italian neighborhood in Chicago, Chef Liz Valenti has great stories to tell and authentic family recipes to share. You’ll love hearing about Liz’s Auntie Ag and mom, Phyllis, while you dine (and wine) on these time-honored comforting dishes: Auntie Ag’s Caprese Salad with Roasted Cherry Tomatoes, Marinated Mushrooms, and Roasted Red Peppers, Phyllis’ Gravy with Braciole, Italian Sausage, and Meatballs, and Rapini with Garlic. And just wait until you see Grandma Valenti’s Polenta Board! We’ll be serving family-style so we can enjoy the camaraderie and special family feel of gathering around the Italian table. This menu will be paired with wine.
