Sample A  Fabulous Multi Course Menu During The Battle Of Cuisines
Spanish or Italian - both have such fabulous food. Coming up the weekend a battle between these two Mediterranean cuisines at the award-winning Carnevino Italian Steakhouse at The Palazzo. Carnevino’s very own Arnold Corpuz, representing Italy, for a seven-course menu and wine pairing will battle Anthony Sasso from New York City’s Michelin-starred Casa Mono and La Sirena Ristorante, who represents Spain.
The menu includes twists on traditional Spanish and Italian dishes such as crudo, escabeche and canellones. The dessert course will be prepared by Pastry Chef Ashley Pietrafeso. Corpuz and Sasso created a menu highlighting classic dishes from each country, pitting them together in a single course for guests to enjoy.
Sasso’s inspiration comes from his deeply rooted Spanish heritage that shaped his upbringing and career. After returning from multiple trips to his family’s small village in Catalunya, Spain, Sasso became an ambassador of classic Spanish cuisine and local Catalan specialties, incorporating them into his work as executive chef at two Michelin-starred New York City restaurants. In 2008, Sasso became one of the youngest chefs to be recognized by the Michelin Guide, obtaining his first of eight consecutive Michelin stars for Casa Mono.
Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich created Carnevino Italian Steakhouse at The Palazzo to share the highest quality steaks with extraordinary wines in their signature Italian style. Carnevino also offers organic veal, Colorado lamb, Heritage Foods pork, handmade pastas, classic antipasti and side dishes inspired by the street food of Naples.
This dinner represents the newest installment of the guest chef dinner series at Carnevino Italian Steakhouse at The Palazzo. Upcoming guest chefs will include Nancy Silverton and Shirley Chung. Silverton serves, along with Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich, as co-owner of Osteria Mozza and Pizzeria Mozza in Los Angeles, Newport Beach, California and Singapore; Mozza2Go and Chi Spacca in Los Angeles; and founder of the La Brea Bakery and Campanile Restaurant. Chung is a former "Top Chef" contestant. So, there are plenty of opportunities to sample a delicious menu selection in the future!
