Someone could argue that prime season for Italian ingredients is early Summer… I do not completely disagree with that; since I was I kid I have always enjoyed the bountiful of vegetables and fruit that our family farm would produce that time of the year. Not many things can compete with a fresh summer dinner in Tuscany: if you have been there you know what I am talking about, if you have friends that traveled there I am sure they have not shut up about it since.
Something magical though happens when winter comes around, and farm life comes to a stand still: everybody gathers in front of the fireplace, which in Tuscan farms is also the stove, meals and stories are shared and bonds are strengthen.
Farmers become hunters for the season, they roam their fields in camouflage every day almost as if they were on a recon mission. They study the landscape, keep track of trees and wildlife… At times trees are old and die, they become wood for the fireplace. At times a boar or a hare gets into the wrong trail, and they become dinner.
To celebrate this holiday season (and before I travel with my family to the farm for Xmas), allow me to cook for you a couple of dinners I have been thinking about for a few months now.
This December we will offer a menu filled with pork deliciousness and as comforting as your best ever family meal. Each course will be paired with a selected shot of Glennfiddich Whisky. Don’t you love being a grown up?
A gluten free pasta option will be offered.
As always, given the nature of our events, tickets are transferrable but not refundable. Please double check your calendar before pulling the trigger!
Our shop is not a restaurant but rather a communal dining room. We do not fire our orders based on your arrival time, we do not use heating lamps and we get sad when our food gets cold because a guest is late. Pretend you are coming to dinner at grandma… mine used to smack me if I was late for Sunday supper. We won’t get physical, we will just start without you around 7.15
Lastly, we recommend you use public transportation or a car service for this one. We want to make sure you get back home safe!
ABOUT GLENFIDDICH SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY
Glenfiddich – the world’s most awarded and best-selling single malt Scotch whisky – is run by the fifth generation of the Grant-Gordon family and today is one of the few remaining family-owned and operated distillers. From dream to dram, the Glenfiddich journey began in 1886 when founder, William Grant, realized his dream of creating the ‘best dram in the valley’ in Dufftown, Scotland. Equipped with distilling expertise, gained after working 20 years at the Mortlach distillery, Grant purchased the necessary tools for the job and he found his premises in the beautiful nearby field of Glenfiddich, Gaelic for ‘valley of the deer’ that also included a pure water source provided by the Robbie Dhu Spring, a vital ingredient in the production of quality whisky. The Glenfiddich distillery was born on Christmas Day 1887, when spirit first flowed from the Glenfiddich stills. The combination of crystal clear water from the spring, home-grown barley, pure Highland air and the unusually small size of the stills, produced an unrivalled single malt Scotch whisky.
Today Glenfiddich continues to be a progressive spirit in challenging malt whisky conventions while also staying true to legacy, by keeping traditional production techniques established by founder, William Grant. For further information visit www.glenfiddich.com.
