Try a Gourmet Ham and Wine Tasting at Vino e Cucina in Paris

An Italian restaurant called Vino e Cucina invites you to take part in a special tasting event revolving around Italian ham from April 1 until June 1, 2014. From truffle ham to black smoked ham to soppressata, a variety of hams will be shared with the Vino e Cucina patrons who order the special platter available until June 1.

Those who wish to try the special selection of hams should stop by between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m., the time of the aperitivo at Vino e Cucina. The aperitivo also comes with a glass of wine chosen to accompany the ham. The platter, with the glass of wine, is just 11 euros per person.

Vino e Cucina is a great place to experience a mix of different cultures. First, there is the Italian cuisine — authentic and made from fresh Italian ingredients. Then, there is the decor, which is inspired by the sleek style of a modern New York boudoir, complete with chesterfield armchairs, Louis XV benches and a sophisticated black bar. Moreover, the vaulted cellar dating from the 19th century lets visitors experience a bit of the old Paris.

In addition to special culinary events like the spring 2014 ham tasting, Vino e Cucina often offers wine tasting courses, showing off its expertise in oenology. As such, the restaurant also benefits from an impressive selection of wines. In fact, the team at the restaurant consider wine to be the star product of the establishment. There are more than 300 different wines available at the restaurant, and the knowledgeable waitstaff knows how to suggest the perfect pairings for a meal.

The cigar room provides a unique touch of sophistication to the Vino e Cucina restaurant. Cigar lovers can try a Gran Corona, Churchill or Especial as they sit back in club chairs admiring the exposed brick of the underground lair. For those who have other dinner plans, it is no problem to just stop by for a drink at the trendy bar-lounge section.

Vino e Cucina therefore entertains visitors with a variety of atmospheres and options for enjoying an Italian-style night in Paris. Guests staying at the Hôtel de la Tour Maubourg should not miss their chance to have an atypical gastronomical experience.
