Italian Cuisine, Wine and Music at Rockin’ The Cucina

A music and culinary event is coming to The Lighthouse Cove in Dewey Beach on June 4th. The event will kick off the start of Coastal Cuisine Restaurant Week.

Personal chef, Sommelier and guitarist Paul Cullen, and nationally recognized James Beard Award Winning Chef Jeff Michaud, are joining together for a night of Italian cuisine, wine and music at “Rockin’ the Cucina.”

A professional musician for over 36 years, Paul Cullen was most notably as the Bassist for Bad Company in the early 90’s. Paul has put down his bass to focus on his passions for Italian wine and cuisine along with Mediterranean style guitar.  Since 2006 he has released 5 solo CDs, including his latest “Live In Tuscany” with the Latin jazzy feel that pairs perfectly with any wine in your glass.

Attendees will enjoy a five-course traditional Italian meal with region-specific wine pairings selected by Cullen and Michaud. “Rockin’ The Cucina” will begin with a social hour, including an antipasti station in the Cove sitting right on the Rehoboth Bay in Dewey Beach.

The duo will host cooking demonstrations including an appetizer, salad dish, and a traditional Italian entrée crafted by Paul and Michaud. The courses will conclude with cookies from Frank & Louie’s Italian Specialties in Rehoboth Beach.

Guests will sit back and relax while former Bad Company bassist, Paul Cullen, performs intimate acoustic guitar sets in between courses.
