There's a reason Valentino Cucina Italiana frequently sits at the top of our lists, and won our pick for "Best Restaurant Broward County - 2013" -- it really is one of the best restaurants in town. On the pricier side of the spectrum, it's a special occasion place (for most of us anyway). However, when chef/owner Giovanni Rocchio says he's preparing a special dinner, you know it's going to blow some minds. Next week, he's hosting a dinner of "Innovative Cuisine with a Modern Italian Twist."

Savor Tonight and Mark Spivak, Author of Moonshine Nation, Hosting Hooch Event at Barolo

Categories: Happening

Mark_Spivak_head_shot.jpg
Americans' preferences for alcohol have been all over the place. Nearly every spirit has had its moment to shine. In the Colonial era, it was rum. After the Revolutionary War, American-grown grains were turned into prolific amounts of whiskey. In the Jazz Age, gin saw its day. The Sex and the City generation guzzled (and still guzzles) vodka like an old-school Chevy pickup.

Right now, we're in the midst of a cocktail revival -- it seems like every spirit and every drink is in style. And moonshine, the onetime bootleg liquor that fueled many a Prohibition speakeasy, is back and better than ever. Author Mark Spivak's recent release, Moonshine Nation: The Art of Creating Cornbread in a Bottle, explores the often-mysterious drink. And he's teaming up with Savor Tonight, in the flesh, for a lunch celebrating white lightning.
