Joyce Goldstein’s Recipes at A16 (VIDEO)
Mamma Mia it’s Ladies Night Out!
In Italy ladies have been having their very own night out for well over a century. Festa della Donna, or International Women’s Day, is an annual celebration dating back to the early 1900’s and celebrates the achievements of women’s past and present.
In this video, Wine Oh TV’s Monique Soltani heads to A16 in San Francisco where they are saluting women from all walks of life and raising their glass to two very worthy women.
A16 donated 15% of the evening’s proceeds to La Cocina, an organization which helps low income entrepreneurs formalize and grow their businesses.
A16 is named for the “autostrada” highway that runs from Naples to Canosa, Puglia in Southern Italy. Under the direction of Executive Chef David Taylor, A16 features fresh pasta, house-butchered and house-cured meats and authentic Neapolitan pizza. Complementing the Southern Italian menu, Wine Director/Owner Shelley Lindgren offers wines that highlight the indigenous grapes from regions such as Campania, Sardinia and Sicily.
