    I will have dinner at Ristorante Coria in Caltagirone tonight, run by 2 young chefs Domenico Collonnetta e Francesco Patti who already have 1 michelin star under their belts... I will blog about it next week. It's a wine dinner and the two wineries that will have flights of wines paired with the 7 entrèes are Az Agricola Arianna Occhipinti of Vittoria (RG) and Barraco of Marsala (TP). Both make natural wines. Have a good weekend everyone and stay tuned for the review. :) Dea. Photograph courtesy of
