Happy Birthday, Pellegrino Artusi!
August 8 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm$25 – $75
Nonprofit Esperienza Italia is bringing people together August 8 for a special event jointly celebrated across the Twin Cities to mark the 201st birthday of Pellegrino Artusi, known as “the father of Italian cuisine.” Twin Cities restaurants, Woodfire at Eastside and Harriet Brasserie, will host special dinners that day, utilizing Artusi recipes. In addition, Sebastian Joes, Everett&Charlie, and other local businesses plan to join the party.
For the occasion, Esperienza is working with Casa Artusi, a renowned cooking school in Forlimpopolo, Italy, dedicated to Artusi’s philosophies and recipes. Coordinating with Casa Artusi, the participating restaurants will create a one-time menu highlighting a few favorite Italian dishes. Each chef will create his or her own version, but the recipes will all derive from the famous Artusi cookbook, “La scienza in cucina e l’arte di mangiar bene” (“The Science of Cooking and the Art of Eating Well”). Complete menus will be posted online at Woodfire at Eastside and Harriet Brasserie. Diners can purchase tickets through Esperienza’s event page: www.esperienza.org/artusi
