It all started with a simple press release from Anthony announcing Gravy Sunday’s. Around here you’d assume he was prepping for Thanksgiving because you only put gravy on Turkey, right?
But digging a little deeper we find our buddy Anthony from the incredible Tonno Restaurant in the Blackburn Tavern Building is referring to gravy on pasta.
Aaaaaand that’s where all hell breaks loose on the interwebs.
Growing up in a family when Sundays were reserved for Pasta Sugu like most of the Italian/Sicilian Families in Gloucester it’s now come down to a standoff/cook-off between Anthony and Sefatia to defend the honor of their respective Sugo/Gravy traditions.
Danielle served a fabulous array of snacks and treats at Friday evening’s Jintara Nutprasas gallery event. They were so super delicious, I stopped back today and picked up a bag of provisions to bring to a friend on the mend. In addition to her beautiful selection of pastas, You Must Try Danielle’s homemade cheeses, made fresh every Friday, and handmade salami. What did we do on Cape Ann before Danielle opened her friendly doors? Pastaio Via Corta is located at 11 Center Street in Gloucester. Visit Danielle’s website here.

From the owners of the Blue Marlin Grill in Essex now comes The Boat House Grille. Located at the old Lewis’ Restaurant….and later Castle Creek. I haven’t had a chance to get there yet, but I’ve heard great things about the menu, the food, the staff, and the ambience. Looking forward to seeing what Corey Matthews and his group has created in the very near future!
Danielle was recently featured in this month’s food issue of Northshore Magazine, available on newsstands now. She is also providing the snacks and Prosecco for the photo opening of Jintara Nutprasas on Friday, October 21st from 5-9pm.

My husband and I like to make it to every wine dinner event at Passports because it is a wonderful opportunity to taste outstanding and delicious entrees, appetizers, and wines that we wouldn’t ordinarily try. For example, I LOVE Passport’s lobster roll and think it is the absolute best around. So that’s what I usually have when there and it is always fabulous. At their upcoming wine dinner, which is this coming Thursday, September 22nd, the first course is Captain Joe’s lobster in sherry cream sauce with Pastaio’s handmade campenelle pasta. Doesn’t that sound simply splendid? Each course at Passport’s wine dinners are paired with a thoughtful selection of excellent wines, and with the lobster, we will be enjoying Stags Leap Chardonnay from Chef Eric’s special reserve. Come, I guarantee you will not be disappointed!!

1st Course: Captain Joe’s lobster in sherry cream sauce over Pastaio’s handmade campenelle pasta, served with Stags leap Chardonnay.
