2015 Culinary Tour - SOLD OUT
This is for sure one of my most popular supper clubs, a great way to welcome the Fall by celebrating one of the finest Italian regions. Piedmont is where the best white truffles in the world are found and November is when they are in season.
Here is another traditional event that I love to host: my fifth annual "Buon Natale" Christmas in Italy Supper Club. I always feature some of my family's favourite holiday dishes and dedicate the evening to my mom, because she's back in Italy and I rarely get to see her at Christmas. This gives me a good reason to think about her - grazie Mamma!
Without a doubt, Sardegna ("Sardinia" in English) is one of the most beautiful and unique regions of Italy. And since it's an island and also little far from the mainland, Sardegna's culture and food are a little different than the rest of Italy.
Northern Italian food has been one of the great discoveries of my culinary journey. I'm so pleased to have learned some of the finest recipes from the region and can't wait to share this with you!
Yesterday my friend Enzo dropped off some beautiful fresh Swiss chard from his amazing garden. I wanted to make something healthy but at the same time very flavourful, so I created a lovely Swiss chard parmigiana - light, easy to make, and most of all, super delicious.
Nothing reminds me of my childhood in southern Italy more than il giorno della salsa.
Growing up in Bitritto, a rural town in the region of Puglia, it was a one of my favourite days of the year. I would get so exited that I couldn’t even sleep the night before!
