Prima Strada Long Table Series - this month Emilia Romagna

We love Prima Strada but with four kids it is not some place we can go with the whole clan and not break the bank.   What really has interested me is the Long Table series.

I really have wanted to go to these, but my life is busy and somehow we never manage to get it together to get out to this event.  I want to book a space for Sheila and myself, but the dates are not ideal ones for us.   Still, for her birthday I will book us in on May 30th, though how to do that and not have her notice will be interesting.


Long Table Dining Series: Emilia Romagna
With Spring flowers in bloom, it is time to dust off the mobile oven and get ready. Our first outing of the season is in our own backyard. Join us at the Selkirk Waterfront Festival on Saturday, May 26 from 10a – 3p. Haven’t made it to the festival yet? Expect live entertainment, rides, games and a vendors market, amazing local artists, community displays and dragon boat races. For more information visit their website. Check the Events page on our website for upcoming mobile dates.

Join us at the Long Table on Wednesday and Thursday May 30 & 31 as we revisit the region of Emilia Romagna.

Located in Northern Italy, Emilia-Romagna includes two distinct areas with Bologna, the region's capital, more or less the dividing line. Emilia lies to the west of Bologna, while Romagna lies to the east stretching to the Adriatic Sea. In Emilia is the ancient Roman-built Via Emilia and in Romagna the historic town of Ravenna. The region is home to many famous household names from opera (Verdi & Luciano Pavarotti), cars (Ferrari & Lamborghini), fashion (Giorgio Armani), film (Fellini) and of course food (Parma, Modena, Bologna).

We’ll test your pallet with a sampling of the region’s celebrated balsamic vinegar. Can you identify the true Italian balsamic made in the Emilian cities of Modena and Reggio Emilia?

The Food 

Insalata di Rucola e Parmigiano - salad of local arugula & shaved Parmigiano with balsamic vinaigrette, Asparagi con Prosciutto di Parma - local asparagus with prosciutto & hard-boiled egg, Zuppa di Pesce - fish & shellfish soup and Crostada di Mandorle - Almond Meringue tart

The Wine

Lambrusco di Sorbara Frizzante, Casolari, Trebbiano di Romagna & Sangiovese di Romagna

Dinner begins at 7pm, seating is limited to 16 each evening. The cost is $50 per person plus hst & gratuity ($65). To book your seat, visit our events page.
