Wine and Cheese of Sicily Tasting to Benefit West Hartford Art League

West Hartford-based CT Eats Out will host the CT Supper Club tasting event on Feb. 27.


On Thursday, Feb. 27, 2020, CT Eats Out is hosting a Wine and Cheese of Sicily Tasting at 6:30 p.m. at the West Hartford Art League as a part of their CT Supper Club series.

The Wise Old Dog will be pouring five Sicilian wines that will be paired with five cheeses from Dom’s Cheese Shop. The wine and cheese will be served alongside sourdough bread made with locally grown grains from Atticus Bookstore Cafe, as well as an assortment of Sicilian-inspired accoutrements including pistachios, almonds, and Castelvetrano olives. A sweet treat will end the night.

All proceeds from the dinner will benefit local nonprofit, the West Hartford Art League. For the past 86 years the West Hartford Art Leagues mission has been to bring art to the community through its two galleries, year round art classes for adults and children, and summer camp for kids.

Alycia Chrosniak, West Hartford native and founder of food and travel blog CT Eats Out chose Sicily as the theme due to her recent travels to the island.

I fell in love with the hospitality and the deeply historical food cultures of Sicily. What better way to celebrate Sicily than by bringing their famous hospitality to Connecticut and welcoming guests to a venue that has been welcoming community members for over 85 years,” Chrosniak said. A series of Sicily travel guides will be released on CT Eats Out following the event.

Tickets are $65 per person, include tax and gratuity, and can be purchased here.
