Learn to Love Amaro
Frame Beverage Director Bryan Lamorena

Amaro –  Bitterness isn’t necessarily a trait that we conjure up when we think of drinking, but it’s a key component of tea, coffee, and red wine.  So why is it that we don’t give amaro more thought?  Why haven’t we learned to love amaro?  Perhaps it’s because the bitter and herbal liqueur hasn’t become popular enough yet?  Or maybe it’s too hard to understand, with all its Italian and what-not?  In this class, you’ll learn the ins and outs of amari, what the difference is between aperitivi and digestivi is, the different styles of amari; and how to use them in a couple classic cocktails.

Learning and imbibing: it’s a skill we think is important. Plan on tasting through 6 classic amari, bring some depth to your home bar and leave with a bucket-load of new-found boozy information you can use to wow friends and your next social gathering.

“Tried out frame as part of the ‘grandma’s basement series’ with Chef James (Mabel Gray) and Chef John (Grey Ghost). Our Italian Family Dinner was delicious! Enjoyed every course (which kept coming). Best meatballs I’ve ever had!! Love the idea of home Cookin with a little flare, shared Family style with strangers. A wonderful evening!”

“The vibe at the Frame dinners also reflected the personalities of the chefs, who were able to interact with guests and offer stories about their food memories while cooking rustic dishes without the same expectations that come with their respective restaurants. The food was predictably great and unpretentious, but the series also highlighted the growing importance of personality and storytelling to the modern dining experience.”
