Wiseguy's Italian Supper Club: Pop-Up Wine Dinner with Chef Sandy DiGiovanni
YO, you… yeah, I’m talking at YOU! The Boss, a/k/a Chef Sandy Digiovanni, would like me to invite you to join her tonight for an authentic Italian dinner with some of her wiseguy friends, at their favorite Supper Club. She told me to tell you that she’s gonna the break da code of silence, and show all of yous how to make some real Italian Mafia food. You know, da kind of foods that Pauli from Goodfellas and his minions woulda ate in the back room of da' Ba Da Boom.
You may recognize Chef Sandy’s name as a finalist from NBC’s “America’s Next Great Restaurant”. (No, that’s not a cover. And, no, she’s not in the witness protection program (that we know of) – it’s a real thing.) She’s an engaging instructor, and expert Italian cook. You’ll see. Tonight, she’s gonna prove it as she teaches you a menu that is so good, you’re gonna think you got whacked by some wiseguy and went to “Little Italy” in heaven. I kid you not.
There will be plenty of wine to sip on as Chef Sandy shows you how to create tonight’s Italian classics. Our fabulous menu starts off with Beef Carpaccio, followed by a classic Grilled Caesar Salad with Focaccia de Recco. Then, on to our fantastic entrée of Pasta alla Gricia (pasta with bacon, pepper, and Romano cheese), Tenderloin Saltimbocca with Charred Cherry Tomatoes and a side of creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes....all served ever so elegantly with a glass of Barolo, Genovese or Champagne. Fuggedaboutit.
You will don an apron (unless you think you look good in concrete boots) and work alongside Chef to help her prepare some of the recipes tonight, too. Aww, don’t be scared, you’re gonna have a good time. Cause I said so.
Of course, the night wouldn’t be complete without a drop-dead authentic Italian dessert, so you’ll learn to make Chef Sandy’s world-famous (well, almost) Spumoni Affogato (drowned ice cream) with Chocolate Clementine Cake, which you’ll happily enjoy with a glass of homemade Espresso Liqueur. You heard me.
We promise an authentic Goodfella’s experience - right down to the long group tables, the Louis Prima music, Italian wine, and your new circle of “business associates” (er, I mean best friends). And, if you don't make any wrong moves, Chef Sandy will let you take home her recipes for this amazing Italian feast. You're welcome.
So, don’t be a sap… sign up early. This is gonna be good... real good… Capiche?
