Wanted to give you first crack at this upcoming event with yours truly: on Friday June 15th, join Peter Temkin and me, your tablehopper, for a conversation and tasting all about salumi, uh huh. Yeah, ~THERE WILL BE MEAT~.

Peter (who is charcutier for Showdogs and Foreign Cinema) and I will be walking you through the ancient craft of charcuterie, discussing the history and different styles of cured meats in Italy, Spain, and France, and giving tips on how to buy, serve, and store it at home. Sample local artisanal salumi from Oenotri, Bovolo, Diavola, and from Peter’s own stash. We’ll also be featuring Mano Formate coppa, the award-winning house-cured salumi from chef John Toulze of the girl & the fig. Then compare them to some more large-production releases. Lambrusco (a classic accompaniment) and other wines will also be served.

Get ready for a whole lotta meaty goodness. 6:30pm-9:30pm. $75, reserve online. Ramekins, 450 W. Spain St. at 4th St. W., Sonoma, 707-933-0450.
