This year’s festival features a broad example of the exciting fermentation projects happening in our region.There will be local cheeses, fermented teas, and a variety of educational opportunities related to cheese-making, fermentation, and community involvement. Community participation is encouraged in the Fermentation Contest which will award the “Best In Pittsburgh” in several categories, and is open to the public. People are also encouraged to bring extra cultures for our Culture Swap and a favorite recipe for our Recipe Share board. Last year’s favorite “Let’s Get Comfortable with Mold” table will be returning, complete with poking sticks.

DiAnoia’s Eatery Features the Veneto and Valpolicella Region of Italy

DiAnoia’s Eatery
DiAnoia’s Eatery, a new Italian Eatery serving breakfast, lunch and dinner in Pittsburgh’s Strip District is hosting a Valpolicella wine dinner. On March 5th, 2017, Pittsburgh Chefs Jolina Giaramita and Anthony Giaramita join Chef Dave Anoia and Wine Director Heather Perkins at DiAnoia’s Eatery for a special dinner featuring the food and wine from the Veneto and Valpolicella region of Italy. Before opening DiAnoia’s Eatery, owners, Dave Anoia and Aimee DiAndrea, travelled to Italy’s Valpolicella region on their honeymoon in 2015 and the region has stuck with them ever since. Being one of the couple's favorite spots in Italy, they comission local artist, Diego Byrnes, to paint a mural in DiAnoia’s Eatery of a photo they took in of Valpolicella one day on their trip. The Valpolicella region sits within the larger Veneto region and is just a short car ride north from Verona, the famed city and setting of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Valpolicella is best known for its wines, especially Amarone. Amarone, considered one of Italy’s greatest red wines, is typically made from three grapes, Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, which are then left to dry for several weeks leaving raisins which are then pressed to make the wine. Other notable wines from Valpolicella are Ripasso, Valpolicella Classico and Superiore, Appassimento and Recioto (the sweeter version of Amarone). Also part of the Veneto region and just to the east of Valpolicella is Soave, which is known for its white wines and prosecco. The cuisine of the Veneto region is widely varied. Some of the more frequently used ingredients in dishes of the region are polenta, radicchio and Amarone wine. The menu for March 5th hopes to cover a wide range of what the region has to offer. The evening will start with an hour Antipasti Reception at 5PM and the sit down dinner will begin at 6PM. The Dinner features five courses, all of which are paired with wines from the Valpolicella region. For the menu, click here. To reserve tickets for the dinner, please visit www.dianoiaseatery.com or call (412) 918-1875.
