You will feel as though you have escaped to Tuscany itself as we enjoy a full dinner outdoors by the Tuscan-style fireplace. Included will be also a wine tasting, and as the sun sets, you can clip a bundle of fresh herbs from the garden to take home. We invite you to bring a bottle of wine from the region to share if you wish, or any other wine of your choice. Brush up on your knowledge because there will be a prize awarded to the winner of our “Trivia of Tuscany” game!
PLEASE NOTE BEFORE YOU MAKE YOUR TICKET PURCHASE: This event has a rain date of the following Sunday, May 22nd. Please be sure your schedule can permit you to be here for the rain date should we need to utilize it.

Here is some more about Love and Dishes…
Every menu is custom and current to today’s standards; clean, fresh food, well prepared, and beautifully presented. There is no food sitting on a shelf or in the freezer “waiting” for your event. We are culinary bounty hunters, sourcing top purveyors, local food finds, farm markets, and small food companies hands-on shopping just for your event. We look at a catering job whether it is 8 or 150 as a blank canvas, an exciting challenge, and an opportunity to create something for all of the senses to enjoy. We also look at what we do as a collaboration with our client, a creative partnership that will reflect care and love.
I believe this will be one of the most amazing events The Cozy Castle has featured! Truly it will be, Una Bella Notte!
