La Cucina Italiana Dinner

la Cucina ItalianaThe Bay Club is pleased to welcome Michael Wilson, editor in chief of Italy’s oldest and preeminent food magazine La Cucina Italiana, to the Golf House restaurant in late September.  Michael will work with Bay Club Head Chef Jim Mercer to present a menu culled from the magazine’s recipes that will reflect Italy’s regional culinary diversity.  Restaurant Manager Sue Papi will carefully select Italian wines to best complement each dish.

In 2007, La Cucina Italiana re-launched the American edition  in the United States. Under the leadership of Michael Wilson,  it has become America’s leading resource for the Italian gastronomy. Each issue features recipes that span the traditional to the modern, representing the rich and diverse regions that make up the country, as well as stories on chefs and travel – serving an audience of more than 350,000 nationwide.

I sat down with  Chef Mercer to get his thoughts on La Cucina Italiana and this upcoming event.  “It is a beautiful magazine; always inspiring, it makes you want to pare back to really simple food with simple ingredients that achieve amazing results.”  Chef Mercer simply laughed and responded that “guests can look forward to a great homemade pasta dish,” when I asked him to break with tradition and share the menu with me ahead of time.    Then with a twinkle in his eye he admitted that the event has inspired him to procure a few authentic items that are ordinarily difficult to find.

The Bay Club is a golf and country club community with 625 acres of wooded and gently rolling terrain, that includes 200 acres of open space and 175 home-sites in Mattapoisett along the SouthCoast of Massachusetts.
