Bellina Alimentari is Sweet on Balsamic Vinegar at Culinary Club Dinner and Tasting Events November 5-6
Discover how fine balsamic vinegars heighten flavors and complement foods at the first two Culinary Club events on the calendar at Bellina Alimentari, now open in Ponce City Market. Andrea Bezzechis, who produces traditional balsamic vinegar for Acetaia San Giacomo in Reggio Emilia, Italy, will share his expertise with guests at two distinctly different events this Thursday and Friday. On November 5 at 7 p.m., Bezzechis and Bellina chef David Berry escort guests through a five-course journey of delicious food and balsamic vinegar combinations accompanied by unique wine selections. $160 per person includes meal, wine pairings and traditional balsamic vinegar tasting; excludes gratuity. Make a 5:30 p.m. Friday night date for November 6 to learn how to use balsamic vinegars in the kitchen and appreciate high-quality varieties. $20 per person includes guided traditional tasting plus a selection of specialty cured meats and cheeses, seasonal veggies and house-made schiacciata.
