Last month, the ever popular southern Italian restaurant Sotto in Los Angeles hosted Paolo Cantele for a dinner entitled “The Magic of Salento.”
For the occasion, the restaurant brought in Pugliese pasta maker Francesco Allegro to cook side-by-side with the restaurant’s resident chef Craig Towe: Together, they created a classic Pugliese menu to pair with the Cantele family’s wines.
Paolo spoke about the native grapes of Puglia and chefs Francesco and Craig talked about the richness and depth of classic Pugliese gastronomy.
It was an extraordinary evening of wine and food. And it was yet another example of the excellence in Italian cooking that you can achieve when you have such a brilliant and thoughtful team.
Paolo and the Cantele winery were thrilled to be part of it.
For more than six years, Sotto has stood apart as one of the best Italian restaurants in Los Angeles, in California, and in the country. We couldn’t be more proud to be part of the wine program there.
Thank you, Sotto!
