$45 per member
Elizabeth Minchilli lives the dream: She splits her time between Rome and Umbria while tasting and writing about food all over Italy. Her new book, The Italian Table, was released this spring from Rizzoli. It delivers both the fantasy and reality of Italian meals as they are enjoyed on location. Combining menus and recipes with visual experience and inspiration—as well as insight into the traditions of the food and celebrations—it serves as a practical resource that gives home cooks and hosts step-by-step guidance on how to re-create fabulous Italian meals at their own tables.
In this intimate potluck dinner, Elizabeth will discuss how she got her start in food writing, along with her take on Italian ingredients, bits of culinary history, and her recipe shortcuts, serving and beverage suggestions, tips on to setting the table, and how to time the preparation and the party itself.
And all attendees will take home a copy of The Italian Table.
Attendees will receive TWO credits for the event: one for attending, plus an additional credit to either 1) prepare one recipe from Elizabeth’s cookbook; 2) contribute two bottles of wine; or 3) volunteer for the usual Alliance event position (provide general help, write a short report, or handle photography and social media). Event organizer Carrie Bachman will be in contact with attendees about recipes and wine suggestions to choose from.

Elizabeth Helman Minchilli is the author of eight books on the joys of Italian life. She has written for over 40 magazines, and today shares her passion for Italy through her blog, best-selling apps for iTunes and Android, and through her food tours in Italy.
Her passion for Italy led her from her native United States, where she studied architectural history, to Italy in 1987. She writes on food, travel and design. Her newest books are The Italian Table; Eating My Way Through Italy, which recounts her journey's up and down Italy, following her appetite; and Eating Rome: Living the Good Life in the Eternal City, based on her popular blog Elizabeth Minchilli in Rome, her homage to the city that feeds her, literally and figuratively.
Elizabeth lives with her husband, Domenico Minchilli, an architect who restores and builds homes in Italy and around the world. They live in a rooftop apartment in Rome and a farmhouse in Umbria.
