This winter, escape Boston’s frigid temperatures for a lively evening by Terra’s warm wood-fired grill.

This winter, escape Boston’s frigid temperatures for a lively evening by Terra’s warm wood-fired grill as you indulge in rustic food and Tuscan wine pairings! On January 30, award-winning Chef Dan Bazzinotti invites restaurateur and salumi producer Chef Cesare Casella to take over the Terra grill.

The five-course menu will revolve around seasonal ingredients and pork used from a whole pig raised at Chickering Farm – a demonstration of the versatility of this rich meat and the beauty of utilizing an entire animal. Guests will enjoy smoke-kissed plates (like house-made sausage and tableside prosciutti carvings by both chefs to start the meal) designed by Chef Bazzinotti and Chef Casella – a partnership made all the more special due to the duo’s personal connection and love for salumi.

Stay tuned for the full menu!

At this dinner, you will:

  • Indulge in five courses of Tuscan-inspired, pork-centric dishes brought to you by award-winning chefs
  • Learn about the importance of using whole parts of food
  • Enjoy Tuscan wine paring with each course
  • Experience the magical ambiance of our rooftop restaurant, Terra

La Chandeleur at the French Cultural Center
Feb 1 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Meet and mingle with other Francophiles while celebrating La Chandeleur!

Also called Crêpe Day, la Chandeleur is a French holiday during which people traditionally eat crêpes and drink cidre. Though la Chandeleur is often associated with the Catholic holiday of Candlemas, it actually stems from pagan traditions. And, of course, there is the traditional coin ritual: if you can flip a crêpe while holding a coin in your other hand, you and your family will not have to worry about financial problems. There is even a fun legend that ties Napoleon’s misfortune with his time in Russia with the flipping of the crêpes!

The French Cultural Center will observe this popular holiday with crêpes and a variety of delicious toppings. All ages are invited and welcome to attend!

Please note: When you register for a family, you are registering per family. You will be required to answer a question on the number of family members that will attend.

Early RSVP recommended.
