BIRMINGHAM, AL (October 10, 2023) - October is Italian-American Heritage Month, and that calls for a celebration (whether or not you're Italian!). Enter the Celebrate Italy Occasions Plan - a free potluck-style dinner party plan from eMeals and Stella Rosa® Wines that pairs nine updated classic Italian recipes with award-winning Stella Rosa Rosso to create a memorable multi-course get-together for eight with a little help from your friends.
Available immediately on eMeals' Celebrate Italy landing page or in the Occasions Plan section of the eMeals app for subscribers, the plan lets you share the cooking while ensuring you'll be able to serve a true Italian-inspired feast (no worries about the hodgepodge dishes of most potlucks!).
- As host, you can assign yourself responsibility for preparing the entrée (Tuscan Sirloin with Basil-Lemon Butter Sauce), the salad course (Italian Antipasto Salad), and the sweet-tooth-satisfying dessert (No-Bake Tiramisu Cheesecake).
- Invite a few guests to bring their choice of the plan's appetizers (Tomato Bruschetta or Italian Meatballs and Ricotta) or accompaniments (Caramelized Onion and Garlic Focaccia, Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Roasted Broccolini with Lemon and Parmesan, or Caramelized Mushrooms, Shallots, and Thyme) to shorten your own time in the kitchen.
- Add the unclaimed dishes to your own cooking list, share the recipes with all participants, and get ready for a great evening of conversation and camaraderie.
As the perfect liquid complement to the perfect meal, the plan includes Stella Rosa Rosso. - the semi-sweet, semi-sparkling red wine that helped put Italy's Stella Rosa winery on the map in the U.S. as the #1 imported Italian wine brand. Served chilled, this wine from the Asti province in Piedmont, Italy, is made from a blend of several red grape varieties with notes of fresh strawberry and red berry that harmonize perfettamente with the recipes - and your guests.
