Find out for yourself when downtown Mesa restaurant Il Vinaio holds its second annual Gourmet Donut & Beer Pairing next Saturday (March 20).
From 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., you can get a flight of four different doughnuts, each paired with its own 4-ounce beer sample, for $10, including:
• Ricotta fritter (with Four Peaks Hefeweizen);
• Beignet with vanilla sugar (with Firestone Double Barrel Ale);
• Strawberry filled (with Firestone Union Jack IPA)’
• Ibarra chocolate cake (with Firestone Velvet Merkin).
Chef Patrick Bol will be cooking all doughnuts to order. Reservations are requested so the restaurant can determine how many doughnuts Bol will need to make.
