Description
 
Separating the Italian peninsula from the Baltic peninsula is the Adriatic Sea, renowned for its clear but vibrant blue waters and sun-soaked, rocky beaches. The rustic but fresh cuisine of the Adriatic coast is a seafood lover’s paradise, but there’s much more to this region, which is influenced by the heartier cooking cultures of Eastern Europe. This March, your travel guide is Lucio Palazzo, who was born and raised in Friuli, a northeast Italian region bordering Austria, Slovenia and, yes, the Adriatic Sea. Lucio is Culinary Director for Sojourn Restaurants, including Rex 1516, Jet Wine Bar, Cafe Ynez and the upcoming Sor Ynez. Joining Lucio is Nick Baitzel, General Manager of Jet Wine Bar, who will provide wine pairings for Lucio’s traditional Adriatic dishes, including capesante gratinate (Venetian broiled scallops); brodetto alla Triestina (seafood stew from Trieste, served with firm white polenta on the side); potato gnocchi with brown butter, sage, Shepherd’s Delight; lamb peka (lamb roasted under coals in a traditional bell grill with potatoes, peppers, onions and herbs); and apple strudel with vanilla ice cream.
