There was a time when nearly all things like bread, cheese, sausage, pickles and preserves were homemade. But with the ubiquity of industrial food and the supermarket, there are now so many foods that we rarely ever get to taste the way they were originally made: by hand, at home, from scratch.
Tonight’s dinner takes you back to the basics — simple dishes, carefully made with fresh, local ingredients — but with the skills of master Italian Chef like Luciano Schipano.
Like the well-known Spanish gazpacho, Italian summer minestrone can also be served chilled, for a refreshing starter. This cold soup showcases fresh local vegetables like zucchini, celery, carrot, onion, and mushroom, with beans and orzo pasta in a light tomato broth.
2 grilled homemade Italian sausages, made with organic Ontario pork, fennel and scamorza (smoked mozzarella)
Grigliata di Verdure
A colourful selection of grilled fresh summer vegetables — zucchini, eggplant, peppers, onions & mushrooms
Both served with roasted rosemary potatoes, grilled corn salad with green beans & carrots, and a dollop of Luciano’s mom’s secret BBQ sauce!
Fragole all’Aceto Balsamico
The absolutely perfect summer dessert: a light salad of fresh Ontario strawberries drizzled with a balsamic reduction.
Pork, Vegetarian, or ½ + ½
Italian Sausage Dinner $48 for 2 • $90 for 4
