Slow Food Italian Style


Mama Mia!!! Slow Food: Italian Style on THURSDAY, AUGUST 23 is SOLD OUT! But don’t lose hope! We have added a second date with Rino and Giacomo on WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 22!

The Director of Promotion for Slow Food Napoli Chapter and Master of Cheese and Oils, "Rino" Silvestro will share Napolitano secrets and serve up local organic ingredients from Willow Wisp Farm “Italian style.” Participants will sample Itlaian cheese, oil, and wine. You will also learn how to cook a traditional starter and main course! Rino’s colleague Giacomo Palladino serves as kitchen assistant, translator and storyteller and may just belt out a few traditional songs! 

To tempt your taste buds further, Rino will be demonstrating how to prepare three traditional Napolitano dishes which we eat family style after olive oil, cheese, and wine tastings:   

Ziti with Neapolitan Ragu

Neapolitan Pasta called Ziti with Pork & Beef cooked with San Marzano Tomatoes

Candele with Genovese

Neapolitan Pasta called Candele with Onions, Carrots, Celery & Beef with Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese

Neapolitan Parmigiana

Deep Fried Eggplants, Neapolitan Ragu Sauce, Smoked Mozzarella Cheese & Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese

“Slow Food is a global, grassroots organization, founded in 1989 to prevent the disappearance of local food cultures and traditions and counteract the rise of fast food culture. Since its beginnings, Slow Food has grown into a global movement involving millions of people in over 160 countries, working to ensure everyone has access to good, clean and fair food. Slow Food believes that by understanding responsibility in daily choices we come to appreciate the cultural and social importance of food. Our education projects differ from most food education as they are based on the idea that food means pleasure, culture and conviviality.”
