While touring Europe with the classic rock band Bad Company, Paul Cullen 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. This April, Paul returns to COOK for an evening of music, wine and, yes, cooking with wine. Joining Paul Claudia Baudo, Founder of Smackaroons, artisanal coconut delights made here in Philadelphia. The duo’s molto vino menu incorporates wine not just as an accompaniment but as an essential ingredient: crostini il parmigiano reggiano, prosciutto di Parma with Lambrusco reduction; wine poached pear insalata with mountain gorgonzola and crispy speck; drunken Kennett Square mushroom risotto with Cantine Povero Barbera; handmade Luganega sausage braised in Paul’s own Rosso di Toscana; and Tiramisu Vin Santo (toasted coconut cream filling with vanilla orange twist Klaus & Co SMACKAROONS soaked in Vin Santo wine, dusted with espresso/cocoa powder).
