Elizabeth Minchilli, author, The Italian Table: Creating Festive Meals For Family and Friends
Saturday, May 4, 2019, 10:30 am - 11:15 am
Stop by the CUESA Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, followed by a book signing at Book Passage in the Ferry Building Marketplace.
Elizabeth Minchilli is the author of eight books on the joys of Italian life. Minchilli’s passion for Italy led her from her native United States, where she studied architectural history, to Italy in 1987. She writes on food, travel and design. The Italian Table delivers both parts of the fantasy and reality of Italian meals as they would be eaten on location. Combining menus and recipes with visual experience and inspiration–as well as insight into the traditions of the food and celebrations–it serves as a practical resource that gives home cooks and hosts step-by-step guidance on how to re-create these fabulous meals at their own tables.
All demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the CUESA tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
