White Wine Dinner
at EVOO Ristorante in Yorkville
Tuesday May 3, 2016

Continuing on 20 years of personable service and gracious welcome, under the helm of Peter Catarino (formerly of Spuntini), EVOO Ristorante will be hosting us with the right mix of food to accompany our Aussie wines selected by John from the cellar.

Nestled along flower shops at 138 Avenue Road, EVOO is steps away from some of Toronto's finest hotels (Park Hyatt, Intercontinental, Hazelton and Four Seasons) and the groove of Yorkville. The inviting atmosphere of EVOO plays host to couples on a romantic dinner, gathering of friends and family or corporate dinners and on May 3, to members and guests of the Australian Wine Society.

Peter and the Chef have crafted a dinner to match our wines as follows:

First Course
Antipasto Misto – Fried Calamari and zucchini flowers,
grilled asparagus, Baby Arugala garnish

Served with 2014 Alkoomi Sauvignon Blanc

Second Course
Chicken Supreme with wild mushrooms, vanilla infused cream sauce

Served with Swings and Roundabouts 2013 Chardonnay and Chateau Tahbilk 2012 (Rousanne, Viognier and Marsanne Blend)

Third Course
Assorted Cheese Plate- Rouquefort, Gouda, figs, apricots, assorted toasts

Served with 2003 DeBortoli Noble One

EVOO is located at 138 Avenue Road, just south of Davenport Road, 416-962-3866. There is parking on side streets, on Davenport and Avenue Road, plus a lot across the road. By TTC on the Bay Street bus and Avenue Road bus. Dinner will commence at 7 p.m.

Price for this event, including tax and gratuity is $87 for Members and Guests. Seating is limited to 40, so book early if you would like to experience this new and special dining evening with your AWS friends.

Future Events

June 21st, we celebrate the Summer Solstice with our dinner on the patio at the Faculty Club. We truly hope for good weather this year, as you may recall last year’s downpour had us inside the Club for our dinner.

No event in July, however we are returning to the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club for our AGM and Aussie barbeque on the deck. This year all the tables will be in the shade, as last year a number were baked in the hot August sun. Mark the date, Sunday August 21st for the AGM and Aussie barbeque.
