3:00 PM EDT - 5:00 PM EDT
Take a trip through Italian culinary history with the Heinz History Center’s Italian American program and Sprezzatura, a woman-owned cafe and catering kitchen specializing in Italian food.
Melissa E. Marinaro, director of the History Center’s Italian American program, will share insights into Western Pennsylvania’s Italian community and how their foodway traditions are preserved in the region today. Chefs from Sprezzatura will then host a live cooking demonstration to show attendees how to make delicious focaccia and grissini. While they cook (and you taste), the chefs will discuss how they celebrate and honor their Italian heritage in the Sprezzatura kitchen today.
Learn more about the connections between culture, food, and work at this live cooking demonstration on Saturday, August 6!
