Bartolotta Tasting at Pier Wisconsin Makes Us Swoon

If you’re lucky enough to book Discovery World and Bartolotta at Pier Wisconsin for your wedding, you not only will have a stunning event, but you’ll be treated to a preview that is truly special.Every spring and fall, Bartolotta invites couples and their guests to a full-fledged tasting to sample their excellent menu. It’s a dazzling display of food, decor and atmosphere.For the past several years, we’ve been lucky enough to be invited to the tastings to support Bartolotta and chat with couples about the magic of wedding filmmaking.And the generous folks at Bartolotta invite us to sample the tasting offerings as well.Let me tell you: It’s amazing.

Our Bartolotta Favorites

Here are just a few of the dishes we sampled and loved, and believe me, we couldn’t get to them all:

  1. Caprese Salad with sliced roma tomatoes, fresh buffalo mozzarella with baby arugula, cracked black pepper olive oil and balsamic reduction;

  2. Braised Short Ribs of boneless short ribs with potato puree, blanched carrots and red wine;

  3. Diver Caught Sea Scallops with asparagus risotto cake and succotash, lacinato kale, sweet corn, red peppers, bacon, chives, citrus butter sauce, garnished with arugula and chili oil;

  4. Parmesan & Ricotta Ravioli stuffed with sauteed wild mushrooms, with a white truffle brown butter sauce, served over sauteed spinach.

I promised myself I would NOT be tempted by Cranky’s donuts or the outrageously delicious wedding cake by Delicately Delicious. But the cake won.

Next Year We Film It
