Travel to Italy for an afternoon culinary with Paesano’s Restaurant and Wine Bar. Cook with Sous Chef Wade Grysban and discuss wine pairings with Michael Roddy, proprietor and wine enthusiast. Participants will be provided with a recipe and ingredients list and are invited to “cook along” with the chef. Alternatively, participants may order dinner and or the red or white wine pairing for easy pop in and pickup directly from the restaurant.

Paesano, founded in 1984 by Michael and Bridget Roddy, specializes in rustic, homey, heart healthy, Italian grandmother comfort food featuring locally grown seasonal products. Michael and Bridget have created a unique, family friendly and wine friendly space engaging the community with special food and wine dinners, tastings, Italian language classes, summer outdoor Italian movies and participating in many charity events.

Paesano is a great friend of OLLI, hosting many of our after-lecture lunches and treating our speakers to their luncheon meal.

Sous Chef Wade Grysban, who has 15 years of experience, has worked in the Paesano kitchen since 2016. He colleagues think of him “as a force to be reckoned with” – he has worked his way up to sous chef after working every station in the kitchen. Chef Wade takes great pride in working in a “scratch kitchen” and has been responsible for the addition of a number of vegan items to the menu.

Preregistration is required via the OLLI website or phone. A link to access the event will be e-mailed to you approximately one week prior to the event. Once you register, you will receive details about purchasing and pick up before the event.
