Lajollacooks4u Incorporates Italian Wine Pairings Into Its Cooking Events
Last week, Chef Jodi attended an Italian wine tasting at San Diego’s Solare restaurant hosted by her friend, Winemaker Lorenzo Scarpone. There, she tasted a variety of delicious wines being showcased by the dozens of wine representatives, and learned how to pair each one with different menu items.
An extra bonus was local fishmonger, Tommy Gomes, of Catalina Offshore, who carved a 105-pound opah fish, which was served later that evening after the winetasting.
All in all, it was a fun and informative event, and Chef Jodi left with new wine knowledge, as well as an entire case of Italian wine – all to be used in our upcoming team-building and cooking challenges!
