A Star in Cantina - Chef Rosanna Marziale at Quartum Store, Quarto (Na)

Chef Rosanna Marziale
A Friday night wine tasting event turned from the usual to world class when Michelin star Chef Rosanna Marziale of  Ristorante Le Colonne visited Azienda Vinicola Di Criscio's Quartum Store.  Well, she didn't just visit.  She brought several of he famous dishes from Caserta and paired them with the wines of the winery based in Quarto.  

The evening began as every evening should...with a light fresh spumante.  We had a glass or two of Asprinio Spumante brut metedo chamat to go with our first two courses.

Then it was time for our appetizer:
'Minestra Maritata' with mozzarella and anchovies
Followed by our pasta course:
Mozzapepe and lemon
Our main course called for a new wine.  Campania Aglianico IGT 2010 aged in barrique which the chef used to prepare her stew.  

Buffalo meat stewed with Aglianico and creamed mashed potatoes with saffron
Our dessert...

Mozzarella cake with a raspberry sauce
Paired with Grappa di monovitigno di falanghina Campi Flegrei.

Friday night in cantina will never be the same.
