I've received an offer via the magazine of La Cucina Italiana to attend an Italian food festival at Arcodoro in Houston. It's organized by the Italian Culinary Institute and is composed of six courses each matched with a wine. It costs 75 bucks plus tip per person.
Has anyone out there attended one of these things (they hold them around the country, so I've posted this to the general board)? Are they as good as they sound? "Filet of Snapper Pan-Seared with Mirto Liqueur and Myrtle Leaves." It's a three hour drive to Houston, but my wife and I think it might make an excellent birthday dinner for her. Your input would be greatly appreciated.
