Come February, a vacation under the Tuscan sun sounds like heaven. And while we fully encourage an ACTUAL trip, a Tuscan night at COOK will hit the spot nonetheless. Tuscan food focuses on fresh, high-quality ingredients that are prepared in a rustic manner that preserves and highlights the cultivation of the ingredients. Your Tuscan tour guides: Paul Cullen, former Bad Company bassist turned personal chef and sommelier, and Claudia Baudo, Founder of Smackaroons, artisanal coconut delights made here in Philadelphia. While touring Europe with Bad Company, Paul fell in love with fine wine, exquisitely prepared food and the culture that surrounds both. Years passed and Paul became a certified level sommelier, and he revisited the classic Italian recipes he learned from his grandmother and mother. He deepened his love — and knowledge — of Italian cuisine during visits to Italy, where he cooked with the local chefs, sipped with winemakers while strolling the vineyards and performed with Italian musicians. Paul brought all of these passions together in 2013 when he started an in-home dining service in the Rehoboth Beach area. Take in Tuscany with a rustic menu of antipasti, charcuterie and cheese; crostini di fegatini (Tuscan chicken liver crostini); Grandma Tagliaferro’s pasta fagioli soup with braised escarole; spezzatino di cinghiale e polenta (wild boar stew over polenta cakes; and ginger lemon heaven icebox cake. Mangia! Mangia!
