Description
 
Amaro, which means 'bitter' in Italian, is a broad category of bitter-sweet herbal liqueurs. Other nations including Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands and France produce their own local versions, but while Western Europe has enjoyed amaro for centuries, only recently has American interest in amaro bloomed. Amaro is traditionally served as an after-dinner digestif, but we believe that rules are meant to be broken. We present: an amaro pairing dinner! Brian Ricci of Philabundance will prepare a four-course dinner with each course paired with amari: cheese, charcuterie and pan-seared chicken livers served with toast points, mustard, relish and chutney, paired with Cappelletti Pasubio; gnocchi with fall pesto, wild mushrooms and shaved pecorino, paired with Vigo Amaro; lamb with fennel and autumn squash, paired with Santa Maria; and almond cakes with cherry chocolate semifreddo, paired with Nonino; and a final digestif of Fernet Mellette. Ricci’s diverse cooking career began at NYC restaurateur Danny Meyer’s Indian-inspired Tabla. After moving to Philadelphia, Ricci held positions at Django, Supper, Pub & Kitchen, Kennett and Brick & Mortar, earning nods from Esquire and Travel & Leisure.
