Amore Italian Restaurant and Wine Bar is once again welcoming Chef Cesare Casella as he takes over the kitchen for one night. This time, Chef Casella, chef-owner of Salumeria Rosi in NYC and author of The Fundamental Techniques of Classic Italian Cuisine, will team with Alessio Fasano, M.D., director of the Center for Celiac Research at Massachusetts General Hospital. Together, they will explore the world of gluten-free eating and the joys of the Mediterranean Diet.
Dr. Fasano, author of Gluten Freedom, will provide an insightful talk about his work in the treatment of celiac disease and other gluten-related disorders. Casella will prepare a gluten-free meal following his secret to brilliant flavors - making the most of just a few, best-quality ingredients.
Guests will enjoy a reception including Leek Frittata and Roasted Beets. The four course dinner will highlight organic farm lettuces and vegetables, risotto with roasted vegetables, wild-caught striped bass, and a seasonal fruit crisp. All courses will include wine pairings.
The Chef & The Doctor dinner series was created in 2015. Science continues to reveal how food choices can influence our ability to live healthier, better lives. Pairing medical knowledge with chef talent creates an evening of new decision making and food experimentation. Delicious and nutritious can co-exist!
