Mucca Osteria

Chef-owner Simone Savaiano carefully selects ingredients to create authentic, Italian cuisine in an intimate downtown Portland restaurant.

Modernist Cuisine

This past week I had the great privilege of attending a lunch hosted by the Modernist Cuisine lab in Bellevue, WA in conjunction of the release of Massimo Bottura's new cookbook, Never Trust a Skinny Italian Chef.  

It was a fantastic experiences sharing 16 courses with Nathan Myhrvold, Massimo Bottura and six other west coast chefs. A few highlights:

Zuppa di Zucca (Squash Soup)


Affetato di Manzo con Spezie (Pastrami)


Vangole agli 'Spaghetti' (Geoduck) 


This is a just a sampling of the creativity and inspiration that I took home with me. I'm very excited to push my own cuisine and Mucca Osteria forward as we continually strive to create a memorable experience for our guests.
