Description

RESCHEDULED FOR FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 10 AT 6;30 PM

Once the hub of the Mediterranean, Calabria now dangles, largely ignored, at the bottom of the Italian boot. Calabria allures with its simplicity and rewards with an underlying complexity, much like when one savor of an artisanal cheese, appreciates an ancient Greek masterwork or interprets a particularly expressive phrase in the local dialect. While each chapter of this Calabria book can also be considered individually, in its entirety, the narration gradually unfolds to reveal the heart of the region and its people. A culinary demonstration and tasting of traditional Calabrian products will conclude the evening. 

Must register and prepay. Limited seats. Members: $20; Non-Members $25.
