Blending the elegance of a Tuscan villa and the warmth of a countryside kitchen, Brio, the traditional Italian restaurant at Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort, will be hosting “A Taste of Sicily,” a wine and dine soirée that will take place May 23, 2018, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Inspired by the celebration of distinctive gastronomy and the convivial spirit of Italy’s southernmost region, this journey will take place through a moveable feast of live chef stations offering authentic Sicilian dishes, paired with Sicilian wines.

Dishes include:

  • Arancino di Riso alla Sicilian antipasti, rice balls with ragu (meat and tomato sauce), mozzarella, and peas, coated with breadcrumbs and deep fried
  • Polipo Patate, Pomodorini, Fagiolini e Olive, slow-steamed octopus with cherry tomatoes, green beans, and olives
  • Rigatoni alla Sicilian, rigatoni pasta, eggplant, fire-roasted tomatoes, and smoky mozzarella cheese
  • Braciola di Maiale alla Griglia con Caponata di Verdure, a salad of Sicilian eggplant, celery, and capers in sweet and sour sauce
  • Cannoli alla Siciliana, a tube-shaped fried pastry dough filled with a sweet and creamy filling of ricotta fruit candies, chocolate, and Bronte pistachio

The pairing of these dishes will be done by Feudo Maccari, a 100-hectare winery which is home to old vines of Nero d’Avola, located at the hills near Noto, in southeast Sicily, among fertile volcanic soil and a sun-drenched climate.

The selection of wines include:

  • Grillo Feudo Maccari 2015
  • Rosé Nero D’Avola 2016
  • Saia 2014
  • Maharis 2014

When: May 23, 2018, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Where: Brio, Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort, 257/1-3 Charoen Nakhon Road, Bangkok
