Ferraro’s Celebrates Truffle Season and 34th Anniversary in November

 

L to R: Gino and Rosalba Ferraro, Ferraro’s Owners

CELEBRATE FERRARO’S 34TH ANNIVERSARY AND
WHITE TRUFFLE SEASON THIS NOVEMBER

 

In November, Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar  celebrates two highly anticipated fall occasions with two special menu events—its anniversary and white truffle season. 

This year marks the 34th anniversary of Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar and the family invites the public to celebrate with them over two weekends featuring special menus. On Nov. 8 – 10 and Nov. 15 – 17, guests will enjoy a prix-fixe three-course menu highlighting many of Ferraro’s favorite dishes for an outstanding $34.34 per person. Guests may choose their appetizer (perhaps Calamari Fritti or Carpaccio di Manzo) and main course (selections include Spaghetti Aglio Olio and Pici Toscano—wild boar ragù). Plus, all diners receive a tempting “dolci” platter—a sampling of Ferraro’s famously indulgent desserts.

White truffle season comes to Ferraro’s on Tuesday, Nov. 19, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., when guests will savor one of the season’s most indulgent ingredients – Italian white truffles – at this special-occasion dinner. Italian white truffles are widely regarded as the most exquisite of all truffles. Their season runs typically from late October to late December. Truffles grow in the wild, where they enjoy a symbiotic relationship with mature oak, beech and hazelnut trees, from which they draw carbohydrates while growing underground. For this reason, truffles cannot be cultivated. That fact, together with their unmistakably rich and umami-filled flavor, makes truffles a universally rare and sought-after ingredient.

This extraordinary dinner stars the three revered Nebbiolo wines: Barbera, Barbaresco and Barolo—each one paired with dishes incorporating shaved white truffle:

  • Braida, Barbera Montebruna, 2016
    Uovo
    Slow poached egg, potato mousseline, raschera cheese
  • Braida, Barbera “Ai Suma”, 2016
    Battuta al Coltello
    Piedmont style beef tartare, hazelnut, porcini mushrooms
  • Pio Cesare Barbaresco, 2013
    Tajarin e Quaglia
    32 yolk Taglierini, quail consommé reduction
  • Pio Cesare Barolo, 2015
    Vitellina
    Veal sirloin, chestnut, pumpkin, fontina cheese

Note this event replaces Ferraro’s monthly Taste & Learn evening, although dishes served will be full portions, not tapas-style small plates. The cost for this one-night-only dinner is $250 per person, all inclusive.

Reservations are always recommended; to reserve, call (702) 364-5300.

Ferraro’s to Showcase Mt. Etna’s Acclaimed Benanti Winery, Sept. 18


FERRARO’S TO SHOWCASE MT. ETNA’S ACCLAIMED BENANTI WINERY AT ONE-NIGHT-ONLY DINNER, SEPT. 18

Mt. Etna Region Ranks as Italy’s No. 1 Emerging Wine-Producing Region

 

Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar invites guests to travel to the Mt. Etna region of Italy without leaving Las Vegas. On Sept. 18 at 6 p.m., guests will “tour” Mt. Etna’s Benanti Winery with owner Antonio Benanti at an exclusive, four-course dinner showcasing top-rated wines from this emerging winemaking destination.

The menu and wine pairing are offered for $150 per person.

This family-run winery is located on the slopes of the Etna Volcano in Sicily and ranks among the most prominent producers of fine wines in Italy. Antonio Benanti and his twin brother, Salvino, took over the business in 2012 from their father Giuseppe and have worked diligently to refine its processes, focusing on the best varietal characteristics of the Etnean varieties. Describing their wines as “slow wines,” the brothers ensure nothing is rushed in the Benanti winemaking process. Antonio Benanti’s reputation as an authority on Mt. Etna winemaking earned him the role as president of Consorzio Vini dell’Etna—that region’s wine producers’ union.

The full menu follows:

Benanti Etna Superiore Bianco, Pietramarina, 2015
Gambero Rosso
Mediterranean red prawn, citrus baked sheep milk ricotta, prickly pear
