For the week of August 4th, 2023
Pork Belly Appetizer
Pork from the finest unsmoked and uncured pork belly sourced from the revered family farms of Montana’s Salmon Creek. Tender pork is slow-roasted, delicately sliced, and pan-seared to perfection in a tantalizing balsamic glaze. This complex fusion of textures and tastes is designed to delight the most discerning palate.
Wine: We recommend pairing this dish with our exceptional Nebbiolo wine, known for its robust structure, nuanced flavors, and rich aromas. The Nebbiolo’s bold, dark fruit flavors, subtle tannins, and hints of anise and rose to elevate the rich pork belly to new heights, making this an unmissable culinary experience.
Wild Pacific Striped Seabass
Pulled from the depths of the Pacific, line-caught for unparalleled freshness and purity. Boasting a mild, sweet flavor and a flaky texture that expertly balances density and delicacy, our seabass is pan-seared with skin-on in the finest Italian olive oil, imparting a deliciously crispy finish. The fish is served atop a bed of cold, crisp Italian farro salad, a vibrant medley of Feta cheese, sun-dried cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, peas, and a fragrant blend of parsley, basil, and mint. This irresistible blend is tossed in red wine, olive oil, and Dijon mustard vinaigrette, delivering a zesty contrast to the succulent seabass.
Wine: We recommend enhancing your dining experience with our selected Chardonnay wine. Known for its rich, buttery flavor profile notes of apple, pear, and tropical fruits, the Chardonnay mirrors the sweet essence of the seabass and the acidic vinaigrette, making this a harmonious pairing for an unforgettable Italian feast.
New Zealand Pasture-Raised Venison Tenderloin
This exquisite 8 oz filet of venison, raised in the lush pastures of New Zealand, is pan-seared to perfection with a crust of freshly crushed peppercorns and coarse sea salt, showcasing its naturally robust, slightly sweet flavor and tender texture. It is then julienne cut and served alongside a rustic Parmigiana. This timeless Italian dish features crispy eggplant slices layered with rich buffalo mozzarella, the renowned San Marzano tomatoes, aged Parmigiano Reggiano, sweetly aromatic roasted garlic, and fresh basil leaves.
Wine: We recommend pairing this with our Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine to elevate it further. Known for its full-bodied richness, this wine’s warm, earthy tones of ripe red fruit, black cherry, and aromatic spices beautifully complement the venison’s robustness and the Parmigiana’s layered flavors, resulting in an unforgettable dining experience.
