Rome-Inspired Vegan Feast

April 5, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


There is a style of cuisine that is specific to Rome, and uniquely different to the rest of Italy. Strongly influenced by early Greek culture, and encompassing more and more different provincial culinary habits as the Roman empire expanded, Rome also has a considerable Jewish population that immigrated from Libya, and favors a vegetable driven North African cooking style.
We’ll be featuring a lot of rustic dishes, and using a lot of our homemade vegan cheeses with this meal. Come join us!

We’ll be featuring one of our newest creations as well, a cashew burrata. If you’d like to try it, just click here.

Here’s a quick glance at the menu:

Cashew Burrata & Housemade Country Bread 
Enough said

‘Suppli Classici’ Risotto Croquettes
We’ll make a risotto, fill it with rich braised tempeh, and our meltable cashew mozzarella, form it into croquettes, roll them in bread crumbs, and fry them until hot and crisp.
This we’ll serve over a rich tomato sauce, and grate our housemade almond parmesan over the top.
Otherwise popularly known as ‘arancini di riso.’

‘Insalata di Finocchio, Radicchio, e Pera’ Fennel, Radicchio, and Pear Salad
 A crisp, lively salad tossed with a lemon vinaigrette, fresh herbs, and topped with shavings of another housemade firm almond cheese.

‘Pizza Rossa’ Roman Sheetpan-Style Pizza with Tomato, Meltable Cashew Mozzarella, and Fresh Basil
This is a staple of the Roman diet, and are often snacks people will take with them wrapped in paper.
We’ll make a slow-rising yeasted dough, top it with a rich tomato sauce, our cashew mozzarella, a bit of basil, and a nice drizzle of olive oil.

‘Crostata di Prugne’ Plum Crostata with Almond Crust

This 5 course meal is an all inclusive (no tax, no tip!) $32, and reservations can be made here.

Hope to see you then!
