Pairing Sicilian red prawns with Rosé.
Obsessed with all things Sicilian, I was treated to a dinner at Messina last week. The chef’s menu offered a 4-course dinner with wine pairing, and I must say that the food was great but the wine pairing not as great. There were snippets of brilliance during the dinner that I would like to share.

A Taste of Tuscany at the ifc mall.
Italy is closer than you think. In fact, those looking to sample wines from the Northern regions of the country need look no further than Isola bar+grill in the ifc mall in Central.
Owned and operated by Gaia Group, Isola occupies a bright and airy two-floor space with floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the harbor and flood the restaurant with natural light. It was the very first restaurant to open in the ifc mall, and after eight years –a virtual eternity in Hong Kong restaurant terms— Isola is still going strong.

Eugenia Yiu discovers the joys of a Sicilian white and a cake inspired by a saint at the Italian Pavilion.
For those who had the time to visit the 4th Annual Wine and Dine Festival, the place was jam-packed with people and a periphery of chaos. Luckily everybody was courteous, and I did not experience any pushing as I had feared. Since the lack of space was not an ideal atmosphere for wine tasting, I had set my mind up for a night of fun with my family, and hopefully get a slight buzz while I am at it.
