A Night In Sicily — Class + Dinner @ Oscar’s

November 29 @ 6:00 pm

Immerse yourself in the rich tapestry of Sicilian culture through this meticulously crafted six-course wine and food experience.

Ask any Italian if Sicily is Italy, and they’ll say technically yes, but actually no – Sicily is its own wildly unique wine and food world. Sicily’s blend of flavors comes from history and geography and eons of uncountable cultural influences. When you eat Sicilian food and drink Sicilian wine, you’re going back in time and tasting the oldest flavors on the Italian peninsula.

In this class, you’ll pair six courses of wine and food that really explain what makes Sicily special in the canon of Italian cuisine. We guarantee you’ll be speaking fluent Nero d’Avola in no time!

SIX WINES + SIX COURSES (menu & timeline tentative)

6pm Arrival – Pretty In Pink As everyone arrives, you’ll be greeted with a glass of Cerasuolo di Vittoria made from a blend of uniquely local grapes, paired up with a delicious amuse bouche of eggplant, caper & tomato caponata.

6:30pm Stay The Course The very best way to understand wine is with food. Each course of Sicilian cuisine is matched up with the ideal regional wine.

  • Antipasto siciliano with Grillo
  • Arancini di porcini with Frappato
  • Spiedini (skewers) of beef, lamb, pork & chicken with Nero d’Avola
  • Cheese course with Syrah

7:30pm Just Desserts
