Description

Michelangelo was born March 6th 1475 in the small village of Caprese, Italy. 

According to Michelangelo's shopping list genius thrives on a diet of fish, bread, and lots of wine. Owned by the Casa Buonarroti museum in Florence, Italy, this 500-year-old list was written and illustrated by the sculptor/painter/poet/personality on the back of a letter. Michelangelo’s servant was likely illiterate, so Michelangelo sketched out what he wanted to eat. Tonight, we will dine on a mustard green salad with burratta, roasted peppers, olives and anchovies, wild mushroom Tortelli with Caprese tomato sauce, baked bronzino with stewed fennel and finish with Italian cheeses. Wash it all down with carafes of red and white Italian wines.

CHEF JOSEPH CIZYNSKI
Born in New York, Joseph Cizynski almost immediately started gaining kitchen experience thanks to his mother and Aunt Dorothy who shared their passion and knowledge of food with him. Joseph attended Fairfield University where he played baseball and for two summers played in the Cape League, thus beginning his love for Cape Cod. Upon graduation from college, and a ball related injury, Joseph took to the Culinary Institute of America where at the age of 26, became Chef/Owner of Café du Bec Fin located in Old Greenwich, CT. Joseph immediately transformed it into a French Seafood restaurant and received three-3 Star reviews from the New York Times and was the first Connecticut restaurateur to receive the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for ten consecutive years. Café du Bec Fin was the venue for numerous wine tasting dinners including the members of the Mondavi, Krug and Dujac families. Several years ago, Joseph, opened a boutique wine shop located in Westchester County and has shared his knowledge of wine and food pairings hosting numerous wine tastings, dinners and various other events. Joseph and his wife, Betsy, bought a home in Chatham ten years ago and are now making plans to live there year-round. He looks forward to sharing his experiences, food and wines with you!
