WINE COCKTAILS with Joe Campanale

I’VE KNOWN OF JOE CAMPANALE FOR A WHILE. After all, there are few restaurant owners under the age of thirty, like Joe, in New York City and who happens to own not one, but three solid establishments in the West Village – dell’anima, L’Artusi, and the newest, a wine bar called Anfora. It wasn’t until recently, however, that I met Joe at a “meeting of minds” hosted by a food corporation that wanted to pick our brains about snacks. (I’m a snack expert, didn’t you know?) I recognized Joe and after shaking his hand, told him I was a fan of his mom, Karen Campanale, who so diligently keeps her twitter friends in the know with food recommendations and motherly updates on her son. I figured that if I name-dropped his mom, he’d warm up to collaborating on a Stupidly Simple Snacks video. I am a genius.

All kidding aside, I really love how this episode turned out. The only constant is change and it was only a matter of time before we added alcohol to the snack series. Without further ado, I present three light, stupidly simple wine cocktails – the spritz from Austria, Tinto de Verano (aka “poor man’s sangria”) from Spain, and the Italian bicicletta. Watch Joe go! I’m sure his mom would be proud. amy • september 7, 2010
