This was my first visit to Artusi thanks to Sourish Bhattacharyya who organized the evening on behalf of Carmen Heinrich, who is here with a sample of wines from Rosoretto (Barolo, Barbera D'Alba and Roero Arneis). The wine was perfectly paired with the delectable spread that Oscar Balcon laid out for us.
Passatelli in Brodo - which is a poor man's dish/soup in Emilia-Romagna Reigon - dumplings made from bread, eggs and cheese in an wholesome meat broth set the tone for the evening - pure delectable flavors .
The next course was Tortellini filled with meat in a traditional Ragu Bolognese . The Bolognese was superb in flavor , the tortellini a bit undercooked for me - yup I know all about Al Dente ! The vegetarian Tortellini filled with potatoes and pumpkin in a Gorgonzola sauce was stunning .I would order that again happily.
Grilled Pork Chops were perfectly done and flavored , I loved them to bits and didn't need the sauce they came with.I would rate these as one of the best I have eaten.
Do head to Artusi - they have a huge menu , a well stocked bar and the wine list looked very impressive - Subhash Arora looked impressed which tells it all !
This was Sourish's first event as an independent promoter of food and wine - brilliantly put together and I do hope to be a part of many more such superb evenings Congratulations Sourish for a very successful beginning.
