Lake Austin Spa Presents Special Guest Chef Luca Della Casa
Aug 18, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Special Guest Chef Luca Della Casa from Nonna Osteria Restaurant in San Antonio and Lake Austin Spa Resort Executive Chef Stephane Beaucamp for a gourmet Italian supper with wine pairing by William Chris Vineyards.
“The inspiration for Nonna Osteria has always been the same,” explains Chef Luca Della Casa. “I grew up in a big family where my Grandmother and Mom cooked huge Sunday suppers every week. When developing the menu, I pulled from those memories for inspiration, recalling family and friends at the table, the rich conversations, the kinship that came from those gatherings. It is our goal to mirror that spirit and share those traditional flavors of Northern Italy executed with a modern flair.”
