Michael Anthony's has, since its inception,
been instrumental in developing and promoting
unique culinary events here in the South Carolina
Lowcountry. This has led us to the formation of
programs we have offered that highlight the many
foods and wines of our Italian ethnic heritage as
well as many other well noted  culinary
regions of the world.

Over the years we have hosted many wine
maker dinners with very well known and
respected winery owners and winemakers such
as Koerner Rombauer, Ferdinando Frescobaldi,
Heidi Barrett, David Ramey and
David Miner among others.

Our familiar wine tastings in our specialty Italian
market have introduced many wine enthusiasts to
more esoteric and enjoyable wines. Our annual
events such as our Christmas Eve Feast of the
Seven Fishes and Winter Truffle Dinner have
become renowned and anticipated each year.

Celebrating the White Truffle
Four-Course Wine Dinner
Thursday, December 11, 2014 at 6:30pm
(plus tax and gratuity)

The highly anticipated truffle season is here!  The white truffle, a gastronomical object of desire, from Italy's
Piedmont region, is famous for its aroma and taste and is considered the “Holy Grail” for gourmands worldwide.  
From September until December the white truffle is harvested from its earthy home in the hills of the Langhe south
of Alba.  The white truffle is a hypogeum fungus, living entirely underground, ensconced among the roots of trees;
those among the oaks being the most sought after by the truffle hunters and their dogs.  For this special evening,
Executive Chef Chris Johnson will be preparing a four-course menu featuring white truffle in each decadent dish,
each complemented by a fine Italian wine.  We hope you will join us for this truly gourmet evening!

On December 24th, Italian families all over the world gather together for La Viglia di Natale - the Christmas vigil,
also called The Feast of the Seven Fishes. The Feast of the Seven Fishes reflects on the rich and varied history of
Italians and Italian Americans. As with many customs, it has evolved with each generation, but the Christmas Eve
Seven Fishes dinner remains an important part of Italian culture. By keeping this tradition each Christmas Eve,
Italians, and especially Italian Americans, remain close to their Italian heritage. Favored dishes vary from family to
family, but tonight we have an array of seafood that includes fresh fish, mussels, calamari, shrimp, clams and
crab.  There will be vegetables and pasta to round out your meal, and a beautiful display of sweets for dessert.  To
add to this festive evening, you are invited to bring your own bottles of favorite wines to enjoy with the dinner!

Gary Brookman has led a long and storied life in the winemaking world of Napa Valley. With his background in
chemistry and interest in geology, Gary started with a cellar job at Joseph Phelps in 1980 and during his 13-year
tenure, he worked at every level of winemaking from enologist to winemaker.  He then moved on to Franciscan for
several years before finding a home at Miner Family Winery where he has been the winemaker since 1997.  In
addition to making Miner’s fabulous wines for the last 17 years, Gary has managed to find the time to craft his own
highly-regarded Cabernet Sauvignon under the Brookman label, a favorite of our staff!  We are pleased to host
