Heritage Calabria: Calabrese Family Style

Heritage Calabria this year celebrates our “Calabresita”. What exactly is Calabresita? It is all the innate qualities that make us proud to hail from this beautiful southern Italian region and all that it has to offer.

Join us at Culinarium to celebrate our Calabrese Heritage every Saturday night in November. 

Join us on Saturday, November 20th for  Calabrese FamilyStyle.
Join Calabrian-born home chef Frank Mazzuca from FamilyStyle as he shares some of his favourite dishes inspired from the Southern Italian countrysides of Calabria.  
Enjoy a few Calabrese stories and music as Frank engages diners in the rustic charm of peasant eating -terroni style.  
Your FamilyStyle dinner includes:
– Sottaceto e Olio (assorted giardiniera, medley of olives, and lupini beans with Calabrese oregano served with “nonna-style” focaccia) 
– Calla a Pasta (pasta and broccoli with a warm aglio e olio drizzle and hot Calabrse chili oil for the daring) 
-Salsciccia e Pepperoni (oven roasted fennel sausage and peppers served with warm boiled potatoes prepared Calabrese style) 
-Digestivo (crisp fresh fennel) 
-Scirubetta Calabrese (traditional shaved ice with a selection of house crafted syrups)
