#LiveItalian with Giada

I recently attended a magical evening at one of my favorite Brooklyn restaurants, Frankie's 457. The dinner was hosted by none other than Giada De Laurentiis and Frangelico.

Frangelico Frizzante

The evening started off with two tasty cocktails mixed up by Micaela Piccolo of Distilled. The Friar Tuck was quite tasty and the Frangelico Frizzante was pretty good, too.

The tablescapes were lovely and each place setting had a tiny potted succulent as a take home favor.

Micaela Piccolo was a drink making machine! Also, she is so cute and friendly. It was a joy to watch her work.

Bufala Mozzarella & Arugula

All of the food was SO GOOD.

The Sunset Sour

The Sunset Sour (Frangelico, Wild Turkey Bourbon, Lemon Juice, Spiced Simple Syrup, Egg Whites) was my favorite drink of the night. Quite tasty!

Giada's Almond Cake

Everything was delicious but the desserts! Giada's almond cake was perfect and the Hazelnut Torte was amazing!
