Que Pasa Presents: Tuscany's Finest - A Food & Wine Pairing Dinner

Go on a taste journey straight to the heart of Tuscany with Que Pasa's exclusive five-course food and wine pairing dinner!

Join us on Saturday, May 4th, starting at 7 pm, for an unforgettable culinary night as we go through the rolling hills and sun-drenched vineyards of Tuscany. Our chefs have crafted a delectable menu featuring the region's freshest seasonal ingredients, perfectly paired with exquisite wines from the renowned Frescobaldi estates.

The Experience:


Crispy Chicharrón: A delightful opening act, our crispy chicharrón (fried pork belly) is balanced with a touch of citrusy lemon cream, nestled on a bed of rice paper and accented with vibrant cilantro cress.

Paired with: Frescobaldi Leonia Pomino Brut, Tuscany, Italy - This sparkling wine's elegant bubbles will cleanse your palate and prepare you for the culinary adventure ahead.

1st Appetizer:

Shrimp Cocktail: Dive into a classic with a twist! Fresh, succulent shrimp are presented alongside a refreshing salad of mandarin oranges and crisp Dutch asparagus. A crispy patacon (fried plantain chip) adds a delightful textural contrast, while dried cherry tomatoes offer a pop of sweetness.

Paired with: Ammariglia Alie Rose, Tuscany, Italy - This light and floral rosé beautifully complements the sweet and savory flavors of the shrimp and salad.

2nd Appetizer:

Grilled Red Snapper: Experience the delicate taste of the sea with our perfectly grilled red snapper. Accompanied by tender Dutch asparagus, a light white wine garlic sauce, a touch of fragrant curry oil, and a bed of baby arugula, this dish is a symphony of flavors.

Paired with: Frescobaldi Benefizio Pomino Bianco Riserva, Tuscany, Italy - This crisp white wine, aged to perfection, enhances the natural sweetness of the seafood and highlights the subtle notes of the curry oil.

Main Course:

Grilled and Smoked Picanha: Savor the succulent flavors of Picanha, a prized cut of South American beef, expertly grilled and smoked. Creamy sweet potato crème adds a touch of richness, while a tangy red port sauce provides a delightful counterpoint. Grilled carrots and asparagus complete this hearty yet elegant main course.

Paired with: Lucente "Super Tuscan," Tuscany, Italy - This bold and complex blend, a hallmark of the Super Tuscan tradition, is the perfect match for the savory smokiness of the Picanha and the richness of the accompaniments.


Cheesecake: End your culinary journey on a sweet note with our decadent cheesecake. A refreshing mint gel and vibrant lulo (South American citrus fruit) sauce add a touch of tropical flair, while a colorful yellow fruit salad provides a delightful textural contrast.

Paired with: Isolabella, Limoncello Spritz - This light and bubbly limoncello spritz offers a refreshing finish to the evening, its zesty citrus notes harmonizing perfectly with the creamy sweetness of the cheesecake.
