Slow Food Chicago features the Pizza and Wines of Campania
Join Slow Food Chicago on Tuesday evening, February 6, for a unique food and wine event that celebrates the message of Slow Food through great pizza and great wine.  

From the basic marinara through dozens of variations, pizza is one of Italy's most recognized foodstuffs.   And of all the great pizzas to come from Italy, no style is more famous than that of Napoli, the pizza capital of the world, and birthplace of the classic Pizza Margherita.

Accompanying a series of other classic Neapolitan pizzas made by Jonathan Goldsmith, owner of Spacca Napoli, will be a sampling of several unique wines from the southern Italian regions of Campania and Puglia.   Discussing these wines will be Tom Hyland, a native Chicagoan and wine writer/educator/photographer specializing in the wines of Italy.

Jonathan Goldsmith opened Spacca Napoli, an authentic Neapolitan pizzeria, just a year ago. Also a native Chicagoan, Goldsmith lived for several years in various regions of Italy, and learned how to make classic pizza during his frequent visits to Napoli. He is a certified pizzaiolo (pizza maker) and his style is as true to the original as possible.  He even had the materials for his wood-burning oven imported from Napoli, and arranged for a family of 3rd and 4th generation Neapolitan oven builders to assemble it on site.

Goldsmith will demonstrate the artisanal quality of several pizza preparations, from dough to finished product, including the classics Marinara and Margherita, and one of his own creations, the unforgettable Bianco Nero.  The evening's line-up of pizzas will include:

-  Marinara - Pomodoro, Aglio, Origano, Basilico
-  Margherita - Pomodoro, Mozzarella, Basilico
-  Sorrentina - Olio Olive, Bufala, Pomodorini
-  Salsiccia e Broccoletti - Mozzarella, Rapini, Salsiccia
-  Prosciutto Arucola - Provolone, Crudo, Arucola
-  La Scarola - Escarole, Mozzarella, Acciuga, Aglio, Olive Nere
-  Rodiano - Pomodorini, Pecorino, Aglio, Origano
-  Bianco Nero - Mozzarella, Porcini, Pecorino Tartufo, Olio Tartufo

We'll also learn about several wines of southern Italy from expert Tom Hyland.  Hyland will explain the flavors and traditions of these select whites and reds, all made from local, historical grape varieties rarely seen outside their regions.

-   Mastroberardino Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Bianco, 2004
-   Ferrara Greco di Tufo, 2004
-   De Angelis Lacryma Christi del Vesuvio Rosso, 2004
-   Feudi di San Marzano Salice Salentino, 2004
-   Cantina del Taburno Aglianico, 2004

Hyland has been in the wine industry for 26 years and has written articles on Italian wines for publications such as Decanter, Saveur and The Wine News. He has lectured on the subject for VinItaly USA and the Italian Trade Commission and publishes a quarterly newsletter, the Guide to Italian Wines, based on his frequent trips to Italy.

The cost of this event is $40, all-inclusive.
