Our highlights include two concerts starring The Swingle Kings – Live from Perugia, Italy in their first American appearance, Celebrity Chef Marco Sciortino from Marco’s in Buffalo, New York, headlining a great schedule of cooking demos on the Galbani “Great Italian Chefs” Cooking stage, “Opera for Kids” starring Spotlight Repertory NW, and a Grape Stomping competition which has to be seen to be believed! By popular demand, the Food Court & Vendor Market has been expanded as well.
Over the years we have had demos from chef’s representing such local restaurants as: Café Juanita, Tulio, il Fornaio, Il Terrazzo Carmine, Café Bengodi, Serefina, Assaggio, etc. Some of their recipes can be found in our online Recipe Collection. At the same time, we have featured such national culinary luminaries as Mario Batali, Giuliano Bugali, Anne Burrell, Biba Caggiano, Michael Chiarello, Rocco DiSpirito, Mary Ann Esposito, Maria Liberati, Michol Negrin, Christina Pirello, Rosella Rago and Nick Stellino.
As always, we will again offer a wide array of cultural and educational opportunities in which to participate and learn. Year after year, however, our main attractions continue to be food, entertainment and fun for the whole family!
