You’re invited to explore the wonderful world of Italian cheese with the Nativity Italian Heritage and Cultural Society in May. Our own Diane Welland, dietitian, media spokesperson and food & nutrition writer, will take us on a tasting tour of the top cheese regions of Italy. We’ll learn about cheese traditions, as we travel from the northern Alpine mountains in Valle de Aosta where Fontina has been made since the 12th century to the rocky coast of Sicily and Southern Italy where Pecorino cheeses flourish. Discover what it is that makes these cheeses so special, which foods are often paired with them and what classic Italian dishes they are best known for. We’ll also get to sample some of these delicacies. The evening should be a tasty and informative one.
When: Thursday, May 23 from 7:00 – 9:00 pm
Where: Nativity Catholic School Cafeteria
Cost: No cost to members, non-members $5
As always, there will be a social hour following the presentation for everyone to get together. In order to continue to make this gathering a success we ask that you bring an Italian desert to share, if you can. We will provide soda, coffee, water and wine for refreshments.
