Winter Olympics Inspires “Alpine” Prix-Fixe Week

The opening ceremonies for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi tonight prompted Chef Alexander to think “Alpine” for Carpe Vino’s next prix-fixe theme week.  He conjured dishes featuring high-altitude cheeses and with exotic names like “Bünderfleisch”.  This is the first ever rendition of this theme in the more than three years since the series launched.

Plan now to join us for “Alpine Cuisine,” set for February 18 to 23, the last full week of the Winter Olympic games.  Click here to view the full menu and preparations for this four-course (with choices and vegetarian options) tour of the Alps, right from the Carpe Vino dining room.  In next week’s email, Chef Alexander will describe each course in detail.

Cost is still a very friendly $49++ per person.  To make reservations, call the restaurant at 530-823-0320 or online at

(Here’s a tasty preview:  for desert, choose either Warm Apple Strudel or Black Forest Cake Parfait.)
