It's called comfort food for a reason. Sometimes, when you've had a tough day or week, you just want to tuck into a plate of something hearty and nourishing. And, while no one utters the term 'comfort booze', perhaps they should.
If a serving of gnocchi and a glass of wine (or several) brightens your mood — putting a smile on your face and keeping your stomach satisfied all at once — then make a date with Botero House's Gnocchi and Wine Night. From 5.30pm on Friday, August 30, the CBD restaurant is devoting the evening to quite the pairing.
There'll be multiple dishes to choose from, including a fried gnocchi number with pumpkin, butternut, sage and brown butter that both tastes great and looks rather vivid. Head chef Dan Brown will be heroing local produce, and there'll be local and international tipples on offer to match the food — plus a mulled wine, because it is still technically winter.
Gnocchi and Wine Night is an a la carte affair, but bookings are recommended by contacting the venue.
