Chicago Gourmet and Chef John Coletta make the Two Meatballs shine!

chic-i.jpgDon Newcomb and Jim Price hosted The Two Meatballs at Quartino
Restaurant last night for a meatball and wine tasting feast. Both of
the Two Meatballs agreed (for once) that chef John “hit the meatball on
the head” by replicating each dish to perfection. The one telltale
sign for Pino was that John reproduced the Jewish style artichokes that tasted as if
we were sitting in Rome. The evening was made special when two former
co-workers (both now chefs in their own kitchens) attended the event.
The event was also attended by sixty of Chicago’s top foodies, who enjoyed a
tasting of both meatballs, Chicken Scarpriello, Braised Lamb Shoulder.
Spicy Shrimp Scampi and Tuscan Seafood Saute’. The evening ended on a
sweet note with Chef John’s Zeppole, dark chocolate and carmel fonduta,
and Pino’s “Ugly But Good” cookies. The fonduta was supposed to be dipped with
fresh seasonal fruit, but all the guests could not stop themselves
from dipping the cookies into the chocolate! The evening ended with
Mark and Pino signing 40 books while sipping a glasses of Banfi Rosa
Regale and watching the Red Sox and Indians battle. Chicago has
been a amazing stop on the tour for Mark, and a chance to renew my love
for this great food and baseball town. The meatballs truck on!
