Michelle Lawton of “The Joyful Plate,” and Lina Pernigo, chef at La Foresteria Serègo Alighieri at Masi, will prepare and serve three risotto courses while instructing guests as she cooks. What also makes this event special is that Raffaele Boscaini, of Masi Agricola, will be hosting the event and pairing a number of Masi wines with the food. I can’t think of a more interesting evening for someone who enjoys the wines of the Veneto and the joys of risotto.
For anyone who follows this blog, you may recall that the 2005 Masi Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva Costasera, was one of my top ten wines from the Gambero Rosso, Tre Bicchieri tasting in NYC earlier this year. This event makes for an excellent way to learn about risotto and Masi. I’m hoping to be there myself, if my schedule permits.
