tiramisu, canoli and Peroni beer gelato

Drago Centro’s tiramisu, cannoli and Peroni beer gelato



The Italian American Museum of Los Angeles presents the Sixth Annual Taste of Italy  at the Pico House on Saturday, October 11. Taste of Italy will feature 50+ Italian restaurants in the region including Drago Centro, Valentino, Al Bacio Ristorante and more! The event also includes  100+ wines, entertainment and a market (mercato!).

I had a chance to preview food and drinks from Drago Centro for Taste of Italy recently. Be on the look out for Chef Celestino Drago’s special dishes! His veal cheeks braised in Peroni beer were amazing. I am looking forward to trying more wonderful pastas, desserts and more on October 11.
