We're Throwing a Special Italian Feast at Stacked on December 7th, 2017
On December 7th at 7PM, Chef Gabe Pascuzzi is going back to his roots to throw an Italian meal inspired his Calabrian heritage, weaving in dishes he grew up eating and techniques he’s learned along the way.
Coming from a big Italian family, the holidays were always chaotic in the Gabe's household—in the best way possible. This dinner will channel the tradition of these big family gatherings while drawing from memories cooking alongside family and overseas.
Fun fact: Gabe's grandfather (also named Gabriel) immigrated to Oregon in 1914 and planted his family's roots in Portland, quite literally. He built their home from the ground up and planted an impressive garden that Pasquale Pascuzzi (Gabe’s father) still maintains today. In fact, many of Stacked’s summer fruits and vegetables are sourced from the property. The Pascuzzi patriarch, affectionately referred to as the “Old Tomato,” was a highly respected master gardener. He would take annual family trips back to Italy and return with seeds to test which varieties grew the best in Portland’s climate. Seed makers from all over would send him different tomato seed varieties to grow and then offer his feedback.
For this very special dinner, we will close early for the evening and the restaurant will transform for a family style supper with one long table down the center. The open kitchen will make for a lively evening with a possible guest winery pouring wines by the glass and cocktails available a la carte. We hope you can join us!!!
The 6-course menu costs $75 and beverages are available a la carte. Tip is not included.
