This week I dined out with Paris Urban Adventures at Nebbiolo.
I was the first to arrive, typically Canadian, and had a nice chat with Frederico, who just opened the restaurant a month ago along with his wife Sonia. The business is the perfect marriage of Italy and wine (him) and France and cuisine (her).
|We started with this lovely sparkiling wine Alta Langa, a champagne|
style but not from Champagne which was surprisingly delicious
with parmesan dipped in the best ever balsamic.
|The Gavi di Gavi was paired with the Burrata, |
a super creamy mozerella and puree of beets.
|A Valpolicella Ripasso|
that puts most others to shame
to go with the black rice salad.
|And the Amarone.|
Served with veal and fingerling potatoes.
I can't sign off without mentioning the organizer, Camilla, who is warm, gracious and welcoming to all, including a local who joined us part way through the meal and the owners who by mid evening gave up on any supposed formailty they meant to keep and sampled the rest of the courses along with us. Great spot. I almost want to keep it a secret, but that wouldn't be fair to this couple who deserve every success in life. Thank you to everyone for a memorable evening.
