Eight dishes made with whiskey
Emil will guide a tasting of exquisite bourbons he sampled last year along the Bourbon Trail in Kentucky, while Loretta will be busy in the kitchen preparing the food. If you thought that only barbecue is enhanced by the addition of whiskey, you'll likely be surprised at the evening's menu.
Start off with crab cakes napped in roasted corn and red pepper coulis and a smoked tomato chowder served alongside a salad of grilled vegetables. Move on to handmade fettucine with duck ragu and caramelized onions, drunken flat iron steak and garlic smashed potatoes. Then finish off with chocolate whiskey cake and pecan tassie cookies.
Cost for the July 10 dinner and bourbon tasting, which begins at 6 p.m., is $75.
It's at Sapore, one of the area's fine dining secrets. It's tucked away next to the Loretta Paganini School of Cooking at 8623 Mayfield Road, just east of Route 306 in Chester Township. It's an intimate space and is sure to sell out quickly, so make reservations at 440-729-1110 or online at www.lpscinc.com
