Coming up on Wednesday July 14th, Dr. Champagne (aka Jerry Horn) is hosting one of his infamous Champagne dinners at ~PIAZZA D’ANGELO~ in Mill Valley. He will be pairing four choice French Champagnes with four savory courses from chef Massimo Covello—and they’re big pours, so you’ll have practically a bottle’s worth when all is said and done (so take a cab, hic).

Here’s the menu:
Fiori di Zucca: Capay Farm zucchini blossom filled with smoked mozzarella, Bellwether ricotta, and diced zucchini served with La Tercera Farm agretti and Capay Farm heirloom tomato, with Champagne Deutz Brut Millesime, 2002, Ay.

Branzino in Carpaccio: California white sea bass carpaccio served with Arrowsmith Farm micro salad, capers, and dressing, with Champagne Laurent Perrier Brut Rosé, multi-vintage, Tours-sur-Marne.

Risottino di Funghi Porcini: Vialone Nano rice with Champagne wine, porcini mushroom, Star Route cresta di gallo herb, and aged Parmigiano Reggiano (24 months), with Champagne Jean Vesselle Oeil de Perdrix Brut, nonvintage, Bouzy.

Filetto con Finocchi: roasted Niman Ranch beef tenderloin, with braised Star Route fennel and summer Zuckerman Farms potato, with Champagne Louis Roederer Brut Rosé Millesime, 2004, Reims.

Fantasie di Frutti di Bosco: trios of Fairfield Farm blueberry, Ortiz raspberry, and Lucero Farm strawberry dessert.
