Two of my favorite food and wine people in the area have teamed up to entertain and inform you with the video you see above. The Savory Grape owner Jessica Granatiero and Easy Entertaining Inc. owner Chef Kaitlyn Roberts have put together this short video to discuss six summer wines along with foods that can be paired with them. Chef Roberts has even offered recipes for three of her dishes on the Easy Entertaining Inc. site (click the “Savory Grape Demo Recipes” box on the front page). Both Granatiero and Roberts will be appearing at the Providence Food & Wine Festival at the end of the month, to share even more knowledge and experience.
Before that though, on Friday, August 5 from 5 – 8 p.m. The Savory Grape welcomes Raffaele Boscaini of Italy’s Masi Vineyards for a tasting and bottle signing. If you know Italian wines and have had the pleasure of tasting Masi wines, then you know it is known for its Valpolicella wines, Amarone and Campofiorin, both of which we will taste that evening among others. The Boscaini family has been the owners of the Masi vineyards for six generations. They will be featuring Masi’s 2009 Masi Masianco, 2009 Passo Doble, 2007 Masi Campofiorin Valpolicella and 2006 Masi Costasera Amarone Classico. For more information please see the event page on The Savory Grape’s site.
