Cavatelli Alla Sepia from kitchens of north east coastal Italian shores. Semolina based pasta made in house, flavored with white wine and guanciale. The dish is finished with pine nuts for a satisfyingly toothsome texture. The featured dish landed on Domaine Hudson’s new winter menu this week. When looking for Wilmington dining, try Sous Chef Corey’s Cavatelli Alla Sepia at Domaine Hudson this weekend!
