The Corner of Thinkable and Drinkable: 3 Views of Frasca and Scarpetta

frasca and scarpetta

Last year I attended a very memorable lunch at Seattle’s The Coterie Room featuring the food of Frasca and the wines of Scarpetta. (Check out the recap.) Restaurant and winery owners Bobby Stuckey (the sommelier) and Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson (the chef) held court, both equally entertaining and inspiring.

So it was with great pleasure that I recently read a writeup of the same event in San Francisco by Elaine of Hawk Wakawaka Wine Reviews. And her post led me to a recap of the LA event from Whitney of Brunellos Have More Fun. Both blogs are well-worth your wine-centric time and interest. Peruse:

The Punk Rock, Cross Country Running, Cool Kids Club of Friuli Lovers: aka. Scarpetta

The Frasca Boys

You’ll note that both Elaine and Whitney have a lot of style and personality when it comes to words and images, delivered with a  unique voice and perspective.

Oh, and “The Corner of Thinkable and Drinkable“? I wish I could lay claim to this phrase, which aptly describes where the wines of Scarpetta will meet you. (The credit goes to one of Bobby’s sommeliers at Frasca.) Incidentally, this quote is in both Elaine and Whitney’s post. I guess I was in the bathroom when Bobby uttered it.

Now excuse me while I see if I can move to the intersection of Thinkable Boulevard and Drinkable Way.
