Learn, Eat and Discover: May 22 Culinary Workshop
May 22 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm$100 - $120
Celebrate the food and stories of Naples with journalist and Perugia resident Maria Lucia Luongo, originally from Naples and professor of the history of Italian cuisine at the Pieve International School in Umbria.
From 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., Luongo will lead a discussion about Italian food. We’ll enjoy a four-course dinner with recipes drawn from her book, “Cucinaria: Letters from the Kitchen,” a bilingual salute to the home cooking of three Neapolitan families who shared their recipes, stories and friendship with the author.
The event will be held in Caruccio’s Culinary Event Center on Mercer Island, owned by SPSCA members Lisa Caruccio and her husband, Rino, a native of Italy. The event center forms an elegant backdrop for Luongo as she talks about the background and preparation for each course. A few copies of her cookbook will be available for those who wish to purchase them.
The menu includes light appetizers; first course (two kinds of lasagne, tomato-based sauce/bechamel); second course (polpette di carne/polpette di pesce); vegetable side dish (zucchine trifolate) and custard with fresh berries for dessert. Two glasses of wine, taxes and tip also included.
This event is being co-sponsored with Seattle-Perugia Sister City Association. Register today! Space limited to 20 guests.
