In honor of National Meatball Day and Festa Della Donna (International Women's Day) a select few lucky individuals gathered at Aventine Tratorria in Hollywood, California recently to commemorate the occasion.

These were perfect pairings to go alongside the decadent feast that was upon us. Chef Adolfo Veronese prepared his signature Aventino Meatball, which was stuffed with mozzarella, basil pesto, golden raisins, and served on soft polenta; as well as the Meatball Pizza, topped with house made meatballs, sautéed red onion, fresh oregano, and mozzarella. In addition guests also had the chance to order signature and specialty creations off of Aventine's signature menu.

Everyone loves a good meatball! Regardless of its consistency, size, breaded or not a meatball is a simple food that if prepared correctly is very dense and delicious. Aventine Trattoria nailed it and not only prepared a feast that included an array to perfecting the meatball but continued to prepare a spread that, to me, emasculated other meatballs in existence.
Regardless of the occasion, Aventine Trattoria never fails. From one palette to yours- Cheers and Hope Everyone Had A Happy Meatball Day!
