“La Panarda is a culinary marathon, not a sprint – it’s a meal with peaks and valleys, what I think of as waves of flavor,” says Chef Joe Cicala. And what a marathon might be to a runner, La Panarda is exactly that to a foodie. It’s a goal, an exercise, and an accomplishment, all rolled up into one eight-hour, 40-dish feast. Cicala is hosting the lavish dinner on Sunday, December 16th at 2 p.m. The eight-hour feast is available to only 20 guests and costs $200 but includes eight wine pairings from Abruzzo’s Cantina Frentana vineyard.
