Hotel Monastero di Cherasco

"Dirt Road Dining"

Stay tuned for pictures and updates!

We would like to invite everybody to an evening of Italian food and wine.  On August 8th and 9th,  Maria and Kevin Downey will transform their home in Fall City, Washington, into a beautiful Italian country Ristorante.  Chef Francesco Volpe is flying in from Milan to design the menu and pair the wines.  He will prepare a Pesche dinner on August 8th , and Carne on August 9th. 

This is a very special dinner and only 25 diners will attend each evening.  This will be the 2nd and 3rd “Dirt Road Dining” events.  Kevin named it such after the many wandering evenings in Italy looking for “that little ristorante”…often down dirt roads.  Just when you are ready to turn around, a little house appears.  Walking in the door, you are greeted by a marvelous dining room, warm hosts, and delicious smells. 

$100 donation minimum per person is requested and 100% of the monies go to a selected charity.  Last summer we attended a dinner and had a glorious time.  The room was gorgeous, the chef, food, and wine were amazing and Maria and Kevin did an excellent job.  All donations went to The Delancey House in San Francisco. 

We would love to see everyone at the dinner, to reconnect, talk about the latest in Cherasco and to tell others about our beautiful and unique project. 
Please RSVP to me at immediately so that we can get everyone signed up.  I will email you the directions to the home in Fall City. Washington.

Ciao, and see you soon. 

YES! I would like to RSVP for this event:
