Chef Carrie and Teresa Kearney, CSW, have an extraordinary evening planned with food and wine pairings focused on the Piedmont region of Italy. Bordering France in the west and Switzerland to the north, this region produces some of the most famous wines in Italy, including Barolo, Barbaresco, and Barbera. The first pairing will feature a classic Piedmont dish, Bagna Cauda, rich olive oil loaded with garlic and anchovy—it’s a salty and pungent bite. Risotto Milanese is a luxurious dish perfumed with saffron. Beef braised and infused with lush red wine is a rich main course. And for dessert, classic Tiramisu speaks for itself with a sponge cake-like texture and indulgent, creamy layers.
