Dinner at the Chef’s Table: "Eating My Way Through Italy" with Elizabeth Minchilli

Date: Fri, June 1st 2018

We are very excited to announce this special dinner that features Elizabeth Minchilli as our guest of honor with a menu of her recipes from her new book "Eating My Way Through Italy". Elizabeth is a food writer, blogger and architecture lover who is based in Rome, Italy but also resides part time in the Umbrian countryside and this special weekend menu coincides with Elizabeth’s visit and book signing here at Via Umbria. Chef Liam chose his favorite recipes from the book that range from sformato di parmigiano with balsamic from the Emilia-Romagna region to fish baked with olives from Puglia and finishing with the Esse cookies from the Veneto region. Chef Liam will join you at the table at every course to describe what has been prepared and to answer any questions you may have. This will surely be an experience that you are not soon to forget, so buy your tickets today and don’t miss out!
