Ferragosto Feast with Katie Parla & Brad Spence

Registration closed

Limited to 12 guests

Katie Parla is a Rome-based food journalist, educator and author. A New Jersey native, Katie now spends her time documenting Roman food culture for international publications and hosting food and beverage events aimed at illuminating lesser known aspects of Italian dining and drinking.

Join Chef Brad Spence and journalist Katie Parla for a celebration of Rome's famous Ferragosto meal. Every year on August 15th, Roman friends and families gather for a celebration of Summer and to usher in the vacation season. Although the day has religious origins--August 15th celebrates the Assumption of the Virgin Mary--today, it is essentially a secular holiday.

Romans dine on prosciutto and fruit, chicken-based dishes, and fresh fruit desserts. We will recreate this very Roman fare and pair it with classic Italian Ferragosto-inspired drinks.

Summer is the season for fresh produce from your garden, local farmer's markets, or nearby farms. It can be so tempting to buy in bulk, since you have waited all year for the perfect strawberry or tomato.  When you grow your own, you end up with a surplus of fruits and vegetables. Luckily, there are several helpful ways to preserve your food so you can savor the goodness of these fruits and veggies long after the harvest is over.  Join Mama Buehler and son, our Chef de Cuisine Chef Matt Buehler in a class that will show you techniques such as canning, pickling, and jamming to preserve your summer harvest. Class includes a multi course meal and house wine.
