Father's Day Give-Away: Assaggi

Father's Day is almost here. Throughout the month of June, Capital Cooking will be giving away all kinds of fun gift cards for Dad. Today, sign up to win a $100 gift card to Assaggi. Chef Domenico was one of our favorite guests on Capital Cooking's Picnic Pleasers episode.

Assaggi Osteria and Assaggi Mozzarella Bar, noted for their authentic Italian cuisine, are offering guests four refreshing varieties of wine “granitas” during the summer months: Gew├╝rztraminer, M├╝ller-Thurgau, Lagrein and Pinot Noir. Granita or “ice water” is a semi-frozen dessert made from sugar, water, wine, and various flavorings. Originating in Europe in the 17th Century, Marco Polo introduced this “ice water “ to Venice after returning from a trip to China. Today granitas are most popular in Sicily, but now widely available throughout Italy, and all over the world. Each country has its own interpretation of this popular summer refreshment incorporating coffee, various liquors, fresh fruits, herbs, and other local ingredients. Bring your dad in to try one.
