Ask Marc Vetri what his favorite grape is and he will say Barbera. The winemakers at Braida feel the same way, as they have focused on the varietal since the 1960s. On March 6, Braida's winemaker, Norbert Reinisch, will join us upstairs at Vetri. We will taste Braida's various Barbera styles, from soft and silky to bold and lush, as well as other native varietals they make, each paired with a dish. Norbert's passion for his family's heritage is captivating. Share an evening with us with wine, dinner, and Norbert's stories, and fall in love with Barbera's powerful elegance.

Barbara Lynch Book Dinner

Monday, April 24, 2017  |  6:30PM
$200  |  Limited to 18 guests

Celebrated chef Barbara Lynch credits the defiant spirit of her upbringing in tough, poor “Southie,” a neighborhood ruled by the notorious Whitey Bulger gang, with helping her bluff her way into her first professional cooking jobs; develop a distinct culinary style through instinct and sheer moxie; then dare to found an empire of restaurants ranging from a casual but elegant “clam shack” to Boston’s epitome of modern haute cuisine. She has won multiple James Beard awards, including Outstanding Restaurateur (only the second woman to win), an Amelia Earhart award winner for her success as a woman in a male-dominated field, and the Relais & Chateau designation of Grand Chef (one of only six in North America). She is the owner of Barbara Lynch Gruppo, which encompasses seven celebrated restaurants, including No. 9 Park, B&G Oysters, Drink, Sportello, and Menton. Three of her restaurants are anchored in and have spurred the revitalization of South Boston, her lifelong home. We are thrilled to have Barbara at Vetri Cucina and hope you can join us for this memorable event!

Summer is the season for fresh produce from your garden, local farmer's markets, or nearby farms. It can be so tempting to buy in bulk after all, you have waited all year for the perfect strawberry or tomato, and when you grow your own, you end up with a surplus of fruits and vegetables. Luckily, there are several helpful ways to preserve your food so that you can savor the goodness of these fruits and veggies long after the harvest is over.
