“Pop-Up” Gastronomy: Sicilian Food and Wine

Wednesday, July 23, 2014
Start: 6:00 pm

Food and wine are the first markers of culture - belief and geography made manifest on a plate and in a glass. Join us as we celebrate food, wine, eating and drinking in our hyper-regional series: Pop-Up Gastronomy on the Waterfront. Our chefs and sommeliers will present you with multi-course food, wine and beer dinners and brief discussions of the influence of each region on their work.

The seatings at each of these events will be limited to 100 people. Tickets are $65 for ECHO Members, $75 for Non-members (ticket price includes dinner and a glass of each of the featured wines). If last year’s very popular series is any indication, they’ll sell out fast.  Each evening will have a different theme and on the last evening, August 20th, Bluebird will be pairing 7 Trappist beers with a delicious 7-course meal!

July 23: The Great Furnace - Sicilian Food and Wine

Mongibello, Etna, the Great Furnace - if you want to truly know the food and wine of Sicily, you have to come to terms with the awesome presence of the great volcano. We’ll drink rare wines made from grapes plucked from the lava flows, and eat food inspired by the bounty of those fertile volcanic soils and great blue Mediterranean sea.
