Chef Ricchi Honored with 2016 YWCA Woman of Achievement Award

The YWCA National Capital Area is a great local organization whose mission statement is to “empower women, eliminate racism and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.” This really resonates with Chef Ricchi’s heart to promote women and their causes through events at i Ricchi. She was very honored when she found out she was one of 5 ladies who was recognized for one of their awards at the 2016 YWCA Women of Achievement Awards Breakfast earlier this month at the Grand Hyatt Washington located at 1000 H Street NW. We appreciate your support and attendance at our events where we seek to inform about women’s issues in an effort to celebrate and help as many women as possible. Find out more here

Try Sake with Italian–It Works in Milan!

If you prefer the Asian appeal, we have a special night for you at our Italian Sake Dinner Tuesday, August 30 at 7 pm when you can experience the coming together of the cultures of Italy and Japan.  You may not be aware that sake was first introduced in Italy in 2001 at the Bra and Slow Food Cheese Festival by Makiko Tejima when her idea to pair sake and cheese was crowd pleasing.  In July 2015, a Milano Sake Week took place in relation to the Expo Milano.  The focus of Sake week was to show how Japanese sake can adapt to different cultures’ foods.  Italians are embracing sake, and you now can find it being offered in many restaurants there.  For more about sake in Italy, click here. Be sure to buy your tickets now to give us your opinion of how well sake pairs with Italian!
