Pulehu, An Italian Grill, Announces Wine Pairing Menu for "A Toast to Tuscany"

Pūlehu, an Italian Grill, the award-winning Italian restaurant at The Westin Kā‘anapali Ocean Resort Villas, today announced the menu for “A Toast to Tuscany”. This culinary and wine experience will be held on Sept. 23 at 6:00 p.m. with Frances Mayes, author of the New York Times bestseller, “Under the Tuscan Sun”. Event attendees will enjoy a four-course dinner prepared by Pūlehu, an Italian Grill’s recently appointed chef de cuisine, Alvin Savella, and the resort’s executive sous chef, Matt Skaletsky. Jim Hansen, restaurant and wine list manager, will thoughtfully pair this menu with Mayes’ wine label, Tuscan Sun Wines, which will be added to Pūlehu’s wine list post event.

“Frances’s wines are about appreciating a simple and good life well lived,” said Chef Savella. “We kept this theme in mind and used it as inspiration for the menu.”

The event menu opens with a fresh catch with fregola, fennel and poricini cream. This is paired with Pensiero, a pinot grigio. Next, attendees will enjoy venison Bolognese, fusilli pasta, fresh ricotta and micro basil. This is paired with Auguri, a Sangiovese blend. The third course is pork belly with kabocha squash risotto, sage and pomegranate. It is paired with Tondo Tondo, 100 percent Sangiovese. Lastly, the dinner will conclude with hazelnut chocolate torte with orange zabaione and mint gelee, which is paired with Toccare le Stelle, a prosecco.

In addition to this Tuscan Sun Wines-paired dinner, “A Toast to Tuscany” features a meet and greet with Mayes and a screening of the movie, “Under the Tuscan Sun”. Tickets are available for $125 per person. For more information, visit westinkaanapali.com, or to purchase tickets, visit honoluluboxoffice.com.
