Hello from the Big Apple! This week's blog dialogue is short and sweet because I'm in New York for (Shhh) meetings and, of course, cooking. So…TULSA! May I have your attention please!? While I'm away, check your calendars and snag a seat at my upcoming pop-up dinner on Friday, November 4 at 6:30 p.m. Inspired by my time in Italy, I've planned and will prepare six courses for 20 guests. Here's a sneak peek at the menu…

Primo – Abruzzo
Stuffed calamari in spicy tomato sauce
Force of Nature Chardonnay
Pasta - Lombardy
Butternut squash risotto
Force of Nature Zinfandel
Intermezzo - Sicily
Pink peppercorn granita
Secondo – Lombardy
gremolata, wilted spinach
Tooth and Nail The Stand
Dolce – Multi-regional
Tooth and Nail The Fragrant Snare
Digestivo – Tuscany
Yes, I LOVE the hands-on approach to teaching in my classes, but pop-up dinners are completely different, experiential events. They’re an opportunity for ME to cook FOR you! I’ll walk through each course, share stories, and cook from an open kitchen. Sommelier Joe Breaux returns for autumn’s finest dining experience and will be presenting pairings by Rabble Wines. October (Isn’t it always?) has been a busy month and November tends to be the same way. Get ahead by taking a night off! WHAT!? You read that right. Escape to dinner in the Rose District and surround yourself with good food and wine created through a passionate process during my FAVORITE time of year. It’s going to be a memorable event, that’s the beauty of a pop-up!
Unisciti a noi!
For now, the girl needs to get back to “New York’ing,” so I’m going to turn this over for a Tuesday toss back to the words of Angela Evans for The Tulsa Voice following our Spring pop-up dinner.
