Matthew Accarrino

SPQR - San Francisco

Co-Owner/Wine Director Shelley Lindgren
SPQR, San Francisco

Inspired by Italy’s ancient network of roads, SPQR co-owner and wine director Shelley Lindgren and chef Matthew Accarrino set out on a culinary odyssey captured in their cookbook, SPQR: Modern Italian Food and Wine. This dinner will reflect the dishes featured in the book as well as the adventurous culinary sensibility of this dynamic duo.
