Giorgio Rapicavoli Cooks at Casa Vincola Zonin Event, Leaks New Projects

At yesterday's Italian Culinary Experience at the Miami Culinary Institute, a few dozen public-relations professionals, chefs, and writers were treated to a wine-pairing lunch featuring Casa Vincola Zonin wines from Tuscany.

These Italian Culinary Experience (ICE) lunches are part of a series that teams wines from the company's several Italian vineyards and local chefs' cuisine. Usually, the meals feature Italian cuisine. This time, however, Giorgio Rapivacoli, chef/partner at Eating House, did the cooking, and although the chef acknowledged his Italian heritage, the meal was a reflection of the eclectic cuisine served at his Coral Gables restaurant. Asian influences, local produce, and a little pop culture were all represented in his meal.
