Email to go out later this week but I wanted to announce here the upcoming event at Caffe Torino of Seattle on August 14th in the afternoon.Unlike the previous events, this is not a dinner instead an experimental afternoon that comes with a small but filling variety of bites (15 or so) where Andrea (owner of Caffè Torino) and I brainstormed to reinvent aperitivos in Turko-Italian style.
I really love food blogger Emiko Davies of what an aperitivo is: “The word “aperitivo” is the name for both the ritual of going out for a pre-dinner drink, as well as the sort of drink that you would probably have at such a ritual. “Aperitivo” comes from the Latin word meaning “to open” and in Italian you still describe the effect of something appetising – that sensation you get when you smell garlic sizzling in butter or your favourite cake baking in the oven – as something that literally “opens your stomach.”
Also coupling these afternoon bites will be Italian style summer cocktails such as Aperol Spritz.
The spaces will be limited but in the upcoming week I will share the link to buy tickets.
