Sundays from JANUARY 7th to 28th, 2018
Italian Sunday Lunch
The language and taste of Southern Italy.
Eat your way through a month of Sundays while learning Italian through fun informal classes to help you chart your travels, menus and Italian food terms.
Italian is theatrical; it conveys in its enterity gestures, intonation and love for food. The second question you will hear when in Italy is “Cosa prepari per pranzo?” or “Cosa hai mangiato oggi?”. It is the Latin Romance language that revolves around food and debates. To know your neighbour or navigate an Italian food market, you need to know the language of food and the gesture that accompany it.
The 4-Sunday series is for 12 guests.
