Wines of Piedmont -- Wednesday, March 29, 6 p.m.
Join us for a very special evening, as our sommelier, Steffen Rasch,
shares a few of his favorite wines from the Piedmont region of Italy. Together we'll explore one of the top food and wine regions in the world. While Piedmont is best known for its headline-grabbling wines such as Barolo, Barbaresco, and Moscato d'Asti, the area is also home to some amazing lesser-known wines from small-scale, family-owned producers. It's these off-the-beaten-path wines that we're excited to be working with on Wednesday. Guests will get to sample 5 wines
, and Champe will pair Steffen's selections with a special 4-course menu inspired by the region
Communal and very limited seating. $90/person, exclusive of tax and gratuity. Please call 401.432.7422 to reserve.
Please visit our sister venture, Persimmon Provisions butchery and artisan foods, in nearby Barrington, Rhode Island.
Our model is the quintessential neighborhood butcher shop updated with a modern aesthetic and culinary sensibility -- high quality meats, hard-to-find cuts, and plenty of friendly tips on how to prepare what you've bought.
Provisions was borne out of Champe's passion for the art and craft of butchery (he was, in fact, a butcher for ten years before culinary school beckoned) and the desire to bring responsibly raised, carefully sourced animals to the local marketplace. The shop features fresh meats, charcuterie, house-made sausages, sauces, stocks, cheese, olive oils and vinegars, dry goods, and a handful of prepared foods (from the Persimmon kitchen). Special orders, of course, are welcome, too. Want your bird brined? Or your roast trussed? In search of a no-fail way to prep foie gras? We've got you covered.
Persimmon Provisions is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The shop is located at 338 County Road (Prince's Hill Place), Barrington, RI, 401.337.5885, www.persimmonprovisions.com.
