Rome Inspired Vegan Feast

March 10, 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!

If you are interested in making reservations, the 5 course dinner is an all inclusive (no tax, no tip!) $32, and you can get your spot here.

That said, here is the menu for the evening:

‘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.

‘Frittata di Zucca’ Pumpkin Frittata
This is a very popular dish in Rome during Rosh Hashanah, and pumpkin is considered good luck for the year ahead.
We’ll make an egg-free frittata filled with pumpkin, potatoes, sage, and pepper, and top it with parsley and a drizzle of bright green olive oil.

‘Pizza Rossa’ Roman Sheetpan-Style Pizza with Tomato
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
A delicious plum preserve tart with almond crust.

Once again, if you’re interested, reservations can be made here.

Hope to see you soon!
