Mark Leslie: Beyond the Pasta
In 2005, author Mark Leslie left his job as a theatrical producer and moved to Italy for a year to completely immerse himself in the Italian way of life. Each day, the "Nonna" of the family he was living with showed him how to prepare age-old Italian recipes while her daughter taught him colloquial Italian. The result is the charming book Beyond the Pasta: Recipes, Language and Life with an Italian Family.
In this very special evening, Mark chats about the recipes and experiences he shared with a kind-hearted and often dramatic family, and their uniquely Italian way of looking at the world. We will sample some of Mark's Italian cookies and sweets, paired with a sparkling dessert wine. Signed books will be available for purchase.
