An Interactive Bourbon Experience at OAK
Join us on Tuesday, March 20, from 5:30 – 8:00pm, for an interactive bourbon experience hosted by Kentucky-based Angel’s Envy. You’ll hear about the history behind the classic Old Fashioned cocktail while enjoying small bites like oysters, charcuterie plates and more, and then learn how to make the drink yourself straight from the experts (supplies included). A team of judges from Angel’s Envy and OAK Long Bar + Kitchen’s award-winning bar staff will taste everyone’s cocktail and select three winners to receive a variety of prizes. All attendees will leave with a gift set that includes all the fixings to make an Old Fashioned at home.
Food and Film
In both Italian and Italian-American films, scenes that feature a specific food or traditional dish stand the test of time in the hearts of movie lovers. Who can forget Clemenza teaching Michael Corleone how to prepare tomato sauce with sausage and meatballs in The Godfather? Back in Italy, Alberto Sordi famously devours a plate of maccheroni wearing a baseball cap in the iconic and hilarious film, Un Americano a Roma. These films all reaffirm the importance of food in Italian culture as a means of bringing family and friends together. To have a good meal is one of life’s pure enjoyments that is so thoroughly and infinitely understood by Italians, and at Eataly, we like to share this sentiment with our guests.
Join us at La Scuola for our first class about food in films. The class menu will be based on the Italian American mafia classics, The Godfather and Goodfellas, where mobsters expertly prepare a “Sunday sauce” and Sicilian cannolis are never left behind in a heist. In this class, guests will:
- Help prepare a meal based on the famous food scenes from The Godfather and Goodfellas
- Participate in a hands-on cooking experience with La Scuola’s chef
- Enjoy three courses with paired wines
- Learn more about wine and wine pairing from and Eataly sommelier
- Take home menu, adapted recipes, and wine tasting notes
