Party like an Italian with a taste of Tuscan Wines

Don't give up on those gift cards! Chef Titina continues to make excellent progress as she recovers from hip-replacement surgery. As soon her "Let's Cook with Titina," classes are rescheduled, we'll let you know--Keep checking the blog for updates.

In the meantime, Titina's son Raffaele Vuotto will step into the Capri Flavors kitchen along with wine distributor, Isabella Sofras Edwards for a series of Italian wine tastings with food parings.

"Let's party Italian" is designed to help cooks and non-cooks alike pull together memorable gatherings without a lot of kitchen time. The series begins on Thursday March 4th with a sampling of Tuscany.

A total of four menus are planned, each revolving around wines from Italy's top regions along with cheeses, cold cuts and other easy foods that go best with them in a party setting.

An average of 6 wines and foods will be sampled each class, and the price is just $40. The first menu is listed below.

Class size is limited to just 14 so book on-line now or call 919 462-9255 for more information.
