Al Tiramisu Salutes Piedmont
Italian Pied Piper Luigi Diotaiuti, the chef and owner of the Dupont Circle restaurant that celebrates the best of Italian cuisine, held another cooking class and luncheon on Nov. 19, celebrating Piedmont in the series honoring the 150th anniversary of Italy’s unification and his 15 years on P Street. The star attraction were the famous white truffles which Luigi abundantly shaved over stirred-to-perfection Acquerello Arborio rice. The lesson began with bagna cauda and concluded with beef stewed in Barolo wine. Given the generous pouring of the region’s signature wines, the participants were also pleasantly “stewed” as they ventured into the sunlight.
