What Mayor De Blasio ate & drank yesterday in Sant’Agata de’ Goti

blasio italy menuYou may remember my post from January of this year on the label that winemaker Paola Mustilli created especially for NYC Mayor De Blasio.

In Paola’s words, “my dreams came true” when Hizzoner visited Sant’Agata de’ Goti yesterday and enjoyed a meal in the home of the town’s mayor, Carmine Valentino. The menu was created by chef Federico Petti, a native of Sant’Agata de’ Goti who currently works in Pavia.

That’s the Bill de Blasio label, above.

The Times covered the mayor’s spectacular “homecoming” here.

Mayor De Blasio’s grandfather was born there and “Sant’Agata remains at the core of Mr. de Blasio’s self-identity,” the paper of record reports. “It was a visit to the town as a teenager that prompted him to embrace his mother’s Italian heritage, at a time when his father’s alcoholism was tearing the family apart.”

Luciano Pignataro posted notes and more photos from the meal on his blog today.

And I just had to share this image and the menu (which Paola sent to me this morning).
