Join Frank in this superb tour of Italy's wines and regional cooking.

Thu 21 Apr 7pm | Grainstore Restaurant | £34.50

In this grand tour of Italy, Frank Stainton, Kendal’s wine merchant ‘straordinario’, will explore some classic and some less well known Italian regional wines. Superb Italian wines matched with classic Italian regional cuisine will make for a fun, and entertaining dinner.


Reception Drink: Prosecco Castello 4357 Fabiano Veneto – The real thing! For nearly a hundred years the Fabiano family have been making this beautiful traditional wine in Veneto

Starter: Bianchetti Fritti – paprika, breaded whitebait served with fennel salad or Rigatoni Alla Siciliana – tomato, aubergine, mozzarella with a hint of fresh mint (V)
Matched With: Soave Leonildo Pieropan – Pieropan is widely regarded as Soave's finest producer, a reputation which is borne out by the depth and body of his brilliant wines.

Main Course: Pollo Saltimbocca – wrapped in parma ham, sage & cooked in white wine with spinach or Risotto Ai Funghi Selvaggi – Arborio rice, wild mushrooms, parmesan & truffle oil (V)
Matched With: Negroamaro, Casato di Melzi Mabis, Puglia, Italy – We're moving deep south to the Biscardi family vineyards in Puglia, where they produce some tremendous wines from the local grape varieties

Dessert: Affogato – A classic combination of rich vanilla ice cream and espresso coffee (V)
Matched With: Recioto della Valpolicella Classico 2010 – We're heading up north again for this surprising, unexpected, rich and indulgent red dessert wine.

Digestivo: Grappa di Prosecco – A round trip and back to where we started. This rather upmarket version of the classic Italian spirit is made from prosecco grapes
