Pumped about pumpkins

La Frasca coming at ya with seasonal specials

Posted By on Thu, Oct 24, 2013 at 4:00 AM

Sad truth: most of us will never get the chance to experience the Italian fall-time tradition of Sagra Della Zucca e Vini (Pumpkin and Wine Festival) in Italy. (Wait, what?)

Sorry to burst that bubble, but thanks to the tastemakers at La Frasca Cibi & Vini (5650 Spring Garden Road)—who dish out Friulano tradition weekly— we can get as close as possible to the real thing.

The Bertossi Group resto has been its own Pumpkin and Wine Festival with a carefully crafted menu full of pumpkin-inspired eats (like acorn, buttercup and white pumpkin soups, butternut squash risotto, lamb chops crusted with pumpkin seeds, soft pumpkin polenta...I could go on) wine specials, Friulano grappas and a company wide pumpkin carving contest to feast your eyes on.

Get over your pumpkin spice lattes, there are much more creative flavours to be had here. This fest runs through until October 31.
