On the first Wednesday of each month Sagra looks to a different region for inspiration and offers a 4 course set menu for $65pp and matching wines for $110pp. On Wednesday the 1st of August we travel to Emilia-Romagna.

Emilia-Romagna is considered one of the richest regions of Italy with regards to its gastronomic and wine-making tradition.

The region is known for its egg and filled pasta made with soft wheat flour. Bologna is notable for pasta dishes like tortellini, lasagne and tagliatelle

Parmigiano Reggiano is produced in Reggio Emilia, Parma, Modena and Bologna and is much used in cooking, while Grana Padano variety is produced in the rest of the region.

Although the Adriatic coast is a major fishing area (well known for its eels and clams), the region is more famous for its meat products, especially pork-based, that include: Parma’s prosciutto, culatello and Felino salami, Piacenza’s pancetta, coppa and salami, Bologna’s mortadella and salame rosa, Modena’s zampone, cotechino and cappello del prete and Ferrara’s salama da sugo.

It is going to be the meal that keeps you warm for the remainder of the winter!

To compliment the menu we have had wines hand picked by Piero Tantini of Godot wines. We are all looking forward to this pairing as Piero himself is from Emilia Romagna. A real chance for him to show of the wines of his own regiPlease join us with your friends and family in celebrating this wonderful region’s cuisine.
