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
