In our family and in our other New Haven restaurant, Basta Trattoria, we like to welcome our guests with a glass of Prosecco, the sparkling Italian wine from Veneto. It also makes a lovely base for poaching apples. I like to use Gala apples for their floral notes, but really, all fresh apples have a wonderful flavor—mix it up.
