On April 12, Jasper’s Plano is infusing its backyard sensibilities with some Italian flair and hosting a special dinner celebrating the delicious cuisine and wines of Italy. Executive Chef and Owner Kent Rathbun, Chef Jeff Moschetti and the Jasper’s team will prepare a selection of antipasti and four courses for the occasion, as they flex their culinary skills for this Italian-inspired feast. Plus, each course will have a culinary demonstration from either Chef Rathbun or Chef Moschetti. And all the while, guests will enjoy a range of food-friendly wines to be paired with each course.

It’s a dinner event that’s not to be missed, so diners are encouraged to make their reservations before seats are booked. Otherwise, they’ll be forced to enjoy veal scaloppini vicariously through their friends’ Facebook feeds, and nobody wants that.
