Angelo Gaja dinner at Cioppino’s Restaurant

I had the privilege to cook for Angelo Gaja last Thursday October 18th. Everyone enjoyed the acumen, charm and class of this icon who placed Italian wines, particularly Nebbiolo on the map of the best wines in the world. Here is the menu and wines paired, and of course some pictures.
