A four season delight
A three course meal at Quattro restaurant consisted of: antipasti, primi, and pesce. Tutto era molto delicioso!
Groupon gave me the opportunity to visit a restaurant that I have wanted to go to. Over the past two years I have attended the Italian Expo and Italian Festival. In the two places I was able to meet the executive chef to Quattro, Chef Maurizio Ferrarese. Quattro is an upscale restaurant in the Four Seasons Hotel in Houston.
An elagant restaurant with fine dining. I took my opportunity and had a three course meal. It all started with the antipasti - Prosciutto di Parma e Mozzarella. One of my favorite things to eat is prosciutto. This prosciutto was paired with sweet Texas melons. I couldn’t help but to slowly savor each bite. The second course was the primi - Parppadelle con Guace di Vitello. It’s parppadelle pasta with veal and porcini mushrooms. Yummy! The third course was the pesce - Dentice. This consisted of Texas red snapper, cannellini bean ragout, butternut squash, and fig marmalade. To top it all I had a glass of wine – Montepulciano.
What made my night was not just the food, but to see the chef come out and make sure every was enjoying their meals. I did stop him and told him I finally made it to his restaurant. At the Italian Expo 2011 I took part in a cooking competition in which the chef made a delicious Black Truffle Risotto. At the Italian Festival I sat in his cooking class where he made another Risotto with Sausage. An amazing chef and one I would like to take a cooking class from someday.
