Crispy, fried rosemary polenta served with assorted Italian honeys


Radicchio, Artichoke and Fig Salad with a Lemon Balsamic Reduction in a Parmigiano Crisp


Shaved radicchio, artichoke and figs with a drizzle of balsamic reduction served in a parmigiano crisp cup



Cornmeal Crusted Shrimp Lollipops


A little whimsy... fried cornmeal crusted shrimp lollipos


 


Frittelle are a traditional Carnevale treat, everyone has their own twist...mine are made with celery root and served with a creamy basil aioli


Individual “Le Grande Lasagna di Carnevale” Ramekins



Lasagna di Carnevale is traditionally enjoyed around Carnevale as a last meat splurge before Lent...my version is completely homemade, the pasta, ricotta and my prize winning Bolognese with sausage, beef and pancetta
