Sushi, Whites and Bubbles Tasting Event featuring the Trifecta Cooks

What wine lover doesn’t like sushi?

We know how sublime premium Sake can be, but can the grape dance with the fish? We know it can and we’ve witnessed it! We’re welcoming the Trifecta Cooks to our San Jose location. Having executed three intimate and excellent sushi and wine pairing events with them at our Los Gatos location, we decided to add them to our summer tasting series in San Jose.

Lai, Jason and Ryan, the “Trifecta” all started with humble beginnings. Ryan scooping Ice cream, Lai washing dishes at a small Japanese restaurant and Jason at Michi sushi in Campbell. All three ended up in culinary school - Lai at the Le Cordon Bleu in Sacramento, and Ryan and Jason to the California culinary academy in San Francisco. These guys are extremely talented and have plated some of the best sushi I’ve {Joey C} had outside of Iwaki City, a coastal town located on the Pacific Coast, three hours North of Tokyo.

The event will feature unique, thought provoking and delectable pairings such as Unagi and Lambrusco, Hamachi and Gavi...the rest will be a surprise!!!

This is a pre-fixe menu at $85 per guest.  Reservations and a credit card hold are required.  Please call into the restaurant at (408) 618-5455 or reserve online via Yelp Reservations. Please indicate that you are reserving for the event and provide a credit card.  A reservation without a credit card will not be honored.

Fried Chicken and Champagne with Chef Sefton and Blue Ribbon

Fried Chicken and Champagne with Chef Sefton and Blue Ribbon

Back in the early 80’s, while growing up in North Jersey, one of our owners, Joe Cannistraci, met Sefton Stallard.  They became lifelong friends. After graduating from college, Sefton attended culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, along with high school friends Bruce and Suzanne. After graduating, Sefton traveled and worked for various restaurants such as the respected “Patina” in Los Angeles, while Bruce went on to co-own, with his brother Eric, what is now the legendary Blue Ribbon Brasserie on Sullivan St. in Greenwich Village.  Sefton eventually ended up back in New York and was placed at the helm of the kitchen of the Blue Ribbon Bakery. The Blue Ribbon Empire has since grown to over 16 locations.  Click here to read more about the restaurants. 

So where does fried chicken fit into the story?  Twenty years ago, the Blue Ribbon brothers developed a unique spice blend and method of breading chicken that became so good, an American classic in a French inspired brasserie was born! The dish became a huge underground New York City cult classic, loved by the likes of every day people to Hollywood celebs.  

This fried chicken is SO GOOD we are bringing this epic recipe to the Silicon Valley to be
featured in our Fried Chicken and Champagne tasting event!  

Stay tuned - more information including ticketing and pricing to follow.

Tomatoes and Jazz with Heirloom Tomatoes from our Farm and the Don Olivet Quartet

We’ve developed a bit of a cult following for the heirloom tomatoes from our little farm in Los Gatos.  Each year we harvest up to 4,000 pounds of meticulously, organically grown, exotic heirloom tomatoes.  We turn them into simple, but exquisite dishes that showcase the quality of the ingredients and farming.  Our special tomato menu usually runs from mid-July through the end of October.  During the best part of the season - early August - each year, we host “The Don Olivet Quartet” and Girasole Imports for “Tomatoes and Jazz”.  It’s an event where you can experience ten unique heirloom tomato dishes, with 25 of the most tomato appropriate paired Italian wines, while enjoying some amazing live Jazz from a legendary local.  Click here to learn more about the Don Olivet quartet.

We've hosted this event at our Los Gatos location for years now - please join us for the inaugural event at our San Jose location!

A Tale of Two Pizzas - featuring ELS San Jose and Oak and Rye
Apr

1:00 PM13:00

A Tale of Two Pizzas - featuring ELS San Jose and Oak and Rye

In 1905, Genaro Lombardi, a Neapolitan immigrant and trained pizzaiolo, received the first
license in America to operate a pizzeria. Upon coming to America, he changed a couple of things.  In Napoli, pizza was fired with wood, in America, Genarro fired his with coal. In America, the mozzarella di buffalo, made from the milk of an indigenous Italian Buffalo was unavailable, so Genarro made his pizzas with “fiore di latte”, cow’s milk mozzarella.

Over the years, as coal was replaced by natural gas and oil burning boilers were used to heat buildings in the city, New York pizza started being made in gas deck ovens, just as most are today. There have been some advancements in Napoli as well.  For instance, the development and use of #00 flour, a super fine strain of durum wheat flour.  But for the most part, pizza in Napoli is made in the same way it has been since the 1800’s.

Currently 70% of the pizza dished out globally is New York Style or a close variation of it. Obviously, part of the reason is convenience, but it begs the question - is New York Pizza better than the traditional Napolitano style? Many claim it is! Is that a case of nostalgic east coasters being sentimental about the flavors of their youth? Is it a case of the pizza is good if the person eating it thinks it is? Well we’ll give you a great opportunity to decide for yourselves! 

We’re welcoming Oak and Rye pizza, our neighbor in Los Gatos, and provider of what we think is the best wood fired pizza for miles, to Enoteca la Storia San Jose for a side by side tasting event with their mobile wood burning pizza oven! 

The event will feature a tasting of 30 Italian wines, under $25, specifically chosen to pair with pizza.  The tasting will be $20 for WC and $25 for General.  This will be a casual, walk-up tasting event.  Pizzas will be made to order from your table.  Regular food menu available as well.  No advanced ticket purchase is required, but a reservation and a credit card hold is.  Please make your reservation by calling into the restaurant at (408) 618-5455 or reserving online via Yelp Reservations.  Please indicate that you are participating in the tasting event and provide a credit card.  A reservation without a credit card will not be honored.

**Reservations cancelled within 24 hours of the event will incur a $25 cancellation fee per guest**

The special pizza menu items for the tasting are listed below.  All items, including the tasting, are ordered separately the day of the event.  The regular menu is available as well.
