sharing (Italian) food to enjoy life

“Ladies Day Out” Event

Posted by Jim Carfrae on November 17, 2010

We had the grand prize event to our “Ladies Day Out” Contest this week. As hard as one prepares there are no guarantees the event will live up to expectation. This time it could not have been more enjoyable to be part of.

Each of 10 winners brought two friends to watch the filming of a Cityline show. They were then driven to Romagna Mia in a huge limousine, and wandered into the restaurant just before noon.

These women were so engaged and shared their personal experiences around the table and with the entire group, I could not have asked for a better group. And the food…

Chef Gabriele started us with a thin slice of pancetta wrapped around a shrimp and grilled. It was served with a balsamic vinegar reduction.

 Caesar salad added our feature ingredient, San Daniele Cube-etti prosciutto quickly sautéed and sprinkled over the top.

The grilled whole calamari was amazing.

The restaurants featured dish, risotto stirred into a wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano, with truffles and the feature ingredient mixed in. The prosciutto was not cooked, just warmed by the risotto.

Pasta with a Bolognese sauce and finally tiramisu in a small shot glass, which was all the room left.
