Famed chef and restauranteur Anthony Caturano brought his old-world style of cooking to Gloucester and debuted Tonno coastal Italian seafood restaurant in June 2016. Now Anthony has invited his chef friends from the Boston area up to the North Shore to launch a wine dinner series.
Tonno is excited to announce the Guest Chef Wine Dinner Series. Each month, a different guest chef will visit Tonno and cook a special four-course menu paired with wine from Savour Wine in Gloucester.
The Guest Chef Wine Dinner Series kicks off on January 25 at 6 p.m. with chef Dante de Magistris of Dante in Cambridge, il Casale Cucina Italiana in Belmont, and il Casale Cucina Campana in Lexington. Chef Dante has earned the attention and praise of national and local culinary critics alike and has received numerous awards for his rustic techniques and deft touch with simplicity. The menu for chef Dante’s dinner brings guests home to the family table that Dante grew up at, with dishes such as:
Affogato: Spanish octopus, “drowned” in red wine tomato sauce, celery salad, crostini
Strozzapreti “latro pesto”: The “other pesto,” creamy walnut & garlic pesto, charred radicchio
Neapolitan braised beef: “Pizzaiola,” san Marzano tomatoes, roasted potatoes, pine nuts, raisins
Panna cotta: Vanilla cream, strawberries, basil balsamic
Additionally, chef Marc Orfaly will be the guest chef on February 22 and chef Matt O’Neil will be the guest chef on March 22.
Each four-course menu with wine pairings is $80, not including gratuity. To reserve a space, contact 978-879-4795.
