Cooking with Rico: Northern Italian Cuisine
Avellino, Thursday, September 19, 2019 at 6:30pm
Compared to the USA, Italy is a small country, but stretches across an immense region, with the northern region sharing borders with France, Switzerland, Austria, and Slovenia. Italy’s regional cuisines express influences from both the geography and the country’s neighbors, while maintaining a distinct regional flavor. As a result, there is no singular “Italian cuisine.” Like other cuisines of the Alps, Northern Italian cuisine showcases richer fats from dairy, such as cream and butter, as opposed to the South where olive oil is more commonly used than butter. Herbs such as rosemary and sage are commonly used, perhaps an influence from northern neighbors. In addition to the ubiquitous pasta, Northern Italian cuisine uses staples such as rice and corn, featured in risotto and polenta. Situated across mountainous, woodsy terrain and fresh water, Northern Italian cuisine features a wide range of protein such as beef, veal, pork, rabbit, quail, and fish.
Join us and experience how Chef Rico has been influenced by the cuisine of the northern Italian region and enjoy some of his favorite recipes and hopefully, bring an idea or two home. This event is $55 per person with wine pairings, or $42 without. Tax, and gratuity are not included. Make your reservations now by calling Avellino at 508-347-2321.
