Cicchetti & Win evening with Norfolk Wine School

Castle and Marketplace

“Cicchetti” (pronounced ‘Chee-ket-ee’) is Italy’s answer to Tapas. They’re small plates of tasty food traditionally served in ‘Trattoria’. the bars and restaurants of Venice, washed down with an ombra, a glass of local wine. This Venetian tradition has now extended into other areas of northern Italy and as with all Italian cuisine the emphasis is upon the use of fresh ingredients, simply prepared, that sing with flavour.

Northern Italy has a rich and varied wine heritage and this themed evening pairs freshly prepared Cicchetti with a range of local northern Italian wines. During the evening we’ll share the principles of food and wine pairing and explain what makes an amazing combination.

You will enjoy a selection of specially prepared hot and cold Cicchetti all served with a recommended wine pairing. A typical menu for the evening will include many of the following dishes:

Orange & rosemary marinated olives with an Aperol Spritz

Melon, prosciutto and fresh mint salad paired with a fruity Prosecco

Traditional Venetian crostini paired with a premium Pinot Grigio from Trentino

Arancini filled with spinach and parmesan paired with a white wine from Lugana

Baccala’ Campognolo – white fish in a spicy olive & tomato sauce paired with a bright and fruity Dolcetto d’Alba

Wild boar ragu served on a fresh fennel salad paired with a rich Ripasso-style red wine

Fresh Panzanella salad paired with a Rose from Bardolino on the shores of Lake Garda

A dessert duo of creamy Tiramisu or Cannoli and a piquante Gorgonzola paired with a Recioto della Valpolicella

Perfect for foodies!
