Rustic Tuscan Dinner

Listen up, cocoababies! Our next Three Course Prix Fixe Dinner is only three weeks away! Silly old me decided to take a few days off for my bday and I forgot to post the announcement before I left. Those of you who are in the cafe often have already reserved space from seeing flyers around... but the rest of you might be a little behind. Allow me to catch you up.

Exclusively Saturday, September 19th, with seatings at 4.5, 6.5, & 8.5pm we will be hosting three enticing courses from the Italian North! Our Rustic Tuscan Dinner is as follows:

Goat Cheese-Stuffed Roasted Figs Wrapped in Prosciutto (optional starter)
Ribollita Soup with White Chocolate Olive Oil Crostini
Roasted Baby Lamb Chop or Fried Gorganzola Risotto Cake
both served with Cocoa Balsamic Sauce and Parmesan-Stuffed Tomato
Espresso Bean Tiramisu with Milk Chocolate-Toffee Crunch

Seatings are $25 per guest (plus gratiuty and tax, of course) and we plan on selling out. As always, we are holding RSVPs with a valid credit card and have a 48hr cancelation policy. Don't wait to call us or you might lose out! 619.578.2984

Until then, here's the yum-yums from last dinner:

Starter: Spinach-Articoke Dip with Cocoa-Glazed Bacon and Garlic Flatbread

First: Caprese Brulee Salad with Cheroke Heirloom Tomatos and White Chocolate Balsamic Glaze

Entree: Ricotta-Mascarpon Ravioli with Chile-Burnt Caramel Hazelnut, Sage Brown Butter Sauce, and Lemon-Vanilla Bean Fennel Salad

Dessert: White Chocolate Summer Berry Bread Pudding with Cocoa-Nib Creme Anglaise

This comment is unrelated to this post, but I wanted to give you guys a big virtual thumbs-up for creating your darkest drinking chocolate yet! It's exactly the sort of thing my husband (who is picky french guy) would LOVE! Too bad for him, I drank the whole thing up before he even had a chance to taste it. Delicious!
