Italian Regional Dinners at Cibo Trattoria

Cibo Visits Tuscany At The Next Regional Dinner On September 26

The world famous, sublime region of Tuscany is the inspiration for Cibo Trattoria’s next Italian regional dinner on Wednesday, September 26.

 Known as the true birthplace of the Italian renaissance, Tuscans are naturally proud of their art, architecture, music and literature. With so much beauty amongst the rolling hills, Tuscans revel in the intense flavours of their cuisine which features simple food well presented. Think fresh breads, vegetables, cheeses, olive oils and meats – all perfect accompaniments to the region’s Chianti wines.

Cibo Trattoria’s $48.00 course menu will include:
  • Duck liver Toscana with house made pickles and bruschetta
  • Pici”- Tuscan style spaghetti with pork ragu, san marzano tomatoes, chili, basil and pecorino
  • Roast chicken with “panzanelle salad”- heirloom tomatoes, roast peppers, walla walla onions, celery, anchovy, bread and chianti vinegar
  • Roast local peaches, almonds, vin santo and crème fraiche
Chef Faizal Kassam’s delicious menu reflects all that is native to this region.
The duck liver is prepared in a typical Tuscan way using anchovies and capers which do not usually appear in liver pates in other parts of Italy. Ask any Tuscan what signifies a true primi Tuscan dish and they would most definitely tell you the Pici style spaghetti. Our roast chicken panzanelle includes bread and the chianti vinegar which feature prominently in Tuscan cuisine. I’m also excited to use our local bounty with heirloom tomatoes and sweet Walla Walla onions. The peaches this season are the best I have ever tasted and they are a perfect match for Vin Santo” stated Chef Kassam. 

Wine pairings for the dinner will also be available.
