MENU FOR AUGUST 19TH COOKING DEMO
“Think about the perfect summer evening. How many beautiful, temperate, moon-drenched
evenings do we actually have the time to stop and just enjoy ourselves and our friends and families?”
— Executive Chef Pino Luongo
As mid-summer fades into late summer, I personally like to take advantage of every opportunity to be outdoors. For this reason, our August 19 cooking class will begin outside on Morso’s beautiful Garden Terrace for hors d’oeuvres before moving inside for the demonstration and dinner. Featured on the menu is summer cuisine that I feel is a reflection of the weather. Simple, succulent foods with ingredients that thrive on the heat and complement its qualities.
Hors d’oeuvres – Calamari al Forno – baked crisp calamari
First Demo Dish – Spaghetti al Pomodoro Crudo – a great summer pasta showcasing heirloom tomatoes from the North Fork of Long Island
Second Demo Dish – Tourno Scottato – pan seared tuna served rare with string beans and tomatoes in a citrus marinade
Dessert – Summer Sorbet, cookies
Each course will be paired with the perfect wine selected by Chef Pino.
Our cooking demos have become very special events for those guests who join us for food, wine and lively conversation, and this promises to be one you won’t want to miss. Join us on Monday, August 19 for our final summer cooking demo and our celebration of the flavors of the season.
