Appleton Restaurant Spices Up the Night with Latin Delight

Osorio's Latin Fusion in Appleton, WI announces the first Annual Chef Libo's Latin Delight Night on March 27th beginning at 7 PM, featuring the delectable flavors of Latin cuisine paired perfectly with delicious Latin Wines.

On the 27th of March, one Appleton, Wisconsin restaurant will transform the evening into a celebration of Latin cuisine and wines. Osorio's Latin Fusion has announced the first annual Chef Libo's Latin Delight Night. A full four course Latin meal, each course will be paired with the perfect wine to enhance the spices and flavors. The evening begins at 7 PM at the Appleton restaurant and is by reservation only.

Having found great success with past dinners of this type, pairing wines, beer and signature margaritas with the International and Latin cuisine that makes up the Osorio's Latin Fusion menu, owner Kim Finnell felt that an evening featuring specific Latin wines paired with creations based on Osorio's family recipes was the next natural step.

"We have so enjoyed our pairing dinners in the past," said Finnell. "This is a great chance for us to highlight some family dishes that the Osorios have created for generations, in addition to some very innovative cuisine created by our chefs in this very kitchen."

Executive Chef Libo Osorio has designed a menu for the Latin Delight Night that will tickle the taste buds and thrill the palette. The feast of Latin dishes created with the culinary skills of the chef and his staff, will feature cuisine exclusively of Latin influence. Pork Carnita stuffed Ancho Chili dough, topped with Verde sauce begins the night, followed by Ahi Tuna Creviche. The main course, Mixiotes, or chicken breast wrapped in a banana leaf then simmered in Latin herbs spices and served with Poblano rice leads to the final course of a Jalapeno Cheesecake Tamale. Each course will be paired with Latin wines specifically chosen to enhance the smooth spice of each dish.

"It's going to be a wonderful evening of food, friends and wine," commented a grinning Finnell. "We're very much looking forward to featuring some of our finest Latin wines with our own recipes. It's going to be delicious."

While this particular pairing dinner features strictly Latin wines and dishes, the complete menu is available throughout the night, as is access to the full bar and soft drinks. Including an extensive children's menu and gluten free selections, Osorio's Latin Fusion provides delicious dishes for all tastes.
