Venetian Oysters

By: Chef Carlo Cavallo,

Makes 12 oysters


  • 12 oysters shucked, shells reserved
  • 2 cups flour
  • 3 large eggs whipped
  • 2 tbsp. half and half
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 inch olive oil in the bottom of the pan
  • 6 slices Parma prosciutto (cut in half)
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 ½  cups of baby spinach
  • 4 oz. Sambuca


  • Set up a dredging station with 3 shallow bowls or dishes: 1st bowl is flour, 2nd bowl is egg and half and half, 3rd bowl is panko breadcrumbs.
  • Add enough oil to a heavy skillet (with 3″-4″ sides) to reach about 1″ in depth and heat to 325°. (Use a thermometer for correct reading)
  • Dredge the oysters in the flour, followed by the egg and half and half, and finally the panko mixture. Transfer the oysters to the pan, cooking no more than 3-4 at a time for about 1-1 ½  minutes on each side. Transfer oysters to a tray lined with paper towels and continue with the rest of the oysters.
  • In a sauté pan on medium heat, melt the butter, add the Sambuca and spinach, cook until the spinach is completely wilted. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Place the fried oyster in the shell, top with a tablespoon of spinach and a half slice of prosciutto.

Carne Asada Tacos

Serves 4



  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 jalapeño chile pepper, minced
  • 1 large handful fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
  • Juice of 2 limes 
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • 2 tbsp. white vinegar 

  • Kosher salt 
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 lbs. New York strip or flank steak, trimmed of excess fat
  • 3 tbsp. Sriracha
  • 1 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 16 (7-inch) corn tortillas
  • Guacamole
  • Pico de gallo
  • Goat cheese


  • In a medium nonreactive bowl mash the garlic, jalapeño, cilantro, and salt and pepper to taste. Add the lime juice, orange juice, vinegar, and ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil. Stir the marinade to combine. 
  • Place the steak in a large baking dish and pour the marinade evenly over top. Wrap the steak in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or for up to 8 hours.
  • In a small bowl combine the Sriracha and the mayonnaise to make an aioli. Set aside. 
  • Prepare the grill or ridged grilling pan for direct cooking over medium-high heat (about 400°F.)
  • Remove the steak from the marinade, and season evenly on both sides with salt and pepper. Grill the steak over medium-high heat until cooked to medium-rare doneness, 5 to 7 minutes per side, turning once. Place the steak on a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. Thinly slice the steak on the diagonal across the grain.
  • Warm the tortillas in a dry skillet or on the grill, until toasty and pliable, about 30 seconds, turning once. To assemble the tacos, stack 2 warm tortillas, and then top with guacamole, steak, pico de gallo, Sriracha aioli, and goat cheese.

Pair With: ONEHOPE Napa Valley Petite Sirah

Pro Tip: Be sure to make the marinade ahead of time—even the night before—to allow your steak enough time to absorb the flavor. 

Bay Scallop Ceviche with Plantain Chips

Serves 4


  • 1 lb. fresh bay scallops
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 ripe avocados, halved and cubed (reserve avocado half shells)
  • ¼ cup slivered red onion
  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 tbsp. chopped jalapeño chile pepper
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • Plantain chips


  • Fill a large skillet with water and bring to a boil. Add the scallops and poach for 1 minute.
  • In a large bowl combine the poached scallops, the lime juice, and the lemon zest and juice. Chill until the scallops turn opaque, about 20 minutes, stirring often.
  • Add the remaining ceviche ingredients and stir gently to combine. Serve in the reserved avocado half shells with plantain chips on the side.

Pair With: ONEHOPE Vintner Collection California Pinot Grigio

Pro Tip: Bay scallops are up to three times smaller than sea scallops, with a sweeter flavor and a tender, more buttery texture. Because of their petite size, bay scallops cook very quickly.

Rosemary Chicken Skewers with Citrus Couscous Salad

Serves 4–6


Couscous Salad

  • 1½ cups fresh orange juice
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 10-ounce package couscous
  • ½ cup orange segments
  • ½ cup grapefruit segments
  • ½ cup shaved fennel
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh mint leaves
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. champagne vinegar
  • Kosher salt
  • Extra-virgin olive oil


  • 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1 tbsp. finely minced fresh rosemary leaves
  • Zest of 1 lemon


  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into ¾-inch pieces
  • Microgreens


  • In a medium saucepan bring the orange juice, water, and 1 tsp. salt to a boil. Gradually stir in the couscous. Remove from the heat, cover, and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and scoop the cooked couscous into a large bowl.
  • In a small bowl combine the remaining couscous salad ingredients with 2 tbsp. olive oil. Add to the cooked couscous and toss well to combine.
  • In a medium bowl combine the marinade ingredients with ¼ cup olive oil, 1 tsp. salt, and ½ tsp. Pepper.
  • Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (about 350˚F).
  • Thread the chicken onto 6 to 8 skewers, leaving a little space between each piece to allow for even cooking. Discard the marinade. Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Grill the skewers over direct medium heat until the meat is firm, golden, and grill-marked, 15 to 20 minutes, turning and basting occasionally with olive oil. 
  • Serve the chicken over the couscous salad and garnish with microgreens.

Pair With: ONEHOPE Côtes de Provence Reserve Rosé

Pro Tip: If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes prior to grilling to help prevent them from burning.
