2015 Culinary Tour - Now Available
It's a tradition by now. As soon I come back from visiting my hometown in Puglia, I serve family recipes at my first supper club.
This food has a special place in my heart and it's always fun and emotional cook home favourites like Involtini di Melanzane, Angello a Forno, and homemade Cavatelli with my friends in Toronto.
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!
This October, join me to learn and make some nice Cavatelli pasta and much more from my region, Puglia.

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!
