We started off the official Desert GTG by gathering for dinner Friday night at Amici Italian Trattoria. We had the perfect size private room for our group of 15 early arrivals.
Here was the great menu selected for us:
Starter (Choice of One)
Asparagus and Artichoke Salad
Fresh asparagus and artichoke in a citrus dressing
Tuscan Bean & Italian Sausage Soup
Cannellini bean with mild Italian sausage
Entrée (Choice of One)
Roasted veal medallions with baby artichokes, wild mushrooms and herbs in a light brandy sauce served with roasted red potatoes and vegetables
Served with figs, gorgonzola and served with risotto and spinach
Pacific Salmon in a lemon, caper, butter sauce served with risotto and vegetables
Pollo Eva Basilico
Prosciutto wrapped chicken breast stuffed with ricotta, sun dried tomatoes, black olives, basil and served on risotto and finished with a sun dried tomato sauce
Rigatoni con Prosciutto e Piselli
Rigatoni sautéed in a parmesan cream sauce with prosciutto, wild mushrooms, peapods, and fresh tomatoes
As you can see, we were happy campers! They also discounted our wine to "Happy Hour" prices, and we were quite happy!
Our friends, Fiona and Steve (new Slow Travel members), also joined in the fun.
After dinner, we stopped at Mango Tree Gelato bar for a scoop of our favorite flavor. We were too busy eating to remember to take a photo!
