Art, warfare, intrigue, and cuisine often melded during the Italian Renaissance. Places such as Milan and northern Italy were important centers for the manufacture of the exquisite armor worn by kings and nobles throughout Europe during battles. Artists including Leonardo da Vinci often designed fortifications and siege weaponry. And, mercenaries known as condottieri found fame and fortune as military leaders for Italian city-states, duchies, and kingdoms. Many of these condottieri, known for their luxurious lifestyles and elaborate banquets, are memorialized by monuments located in Venice, Florence, and other Italian cities, as well as in historical literary works and today's popular culture.
Inspired by the condottieri, Chef Danny Trace of Osso & Kristalla and sister restaurant Potente has created a menu that captures the flavors and ingredients of the Italian places associated with their careers. Culinary historian Merrianne Timko will highlight some of the more interesting condottieri and the cuisine of their time.
Hosted at Osso & Kristalla/Potente.
