About 20 members of SPSCA and Il Punto welcomed journalist and Perugia resident Marialucia Luongo to a cooking demonstration and discussion on May 22, celebrating the food and stories of Italy. A professor of the history of Italian cuisine at the Pieve International School in Umbria, she is originally from Naples.
The event featured a delicious four-course dinner with recipes drawn from her recent book, “Cucinaria: Letters from the Kitchen,” a bilingual salute to the home cooking of three Neapolitan families who shared their recipes, stories and friendship with the author.
Thank you to all who attended. It was a wonderful event! Check back soon for details about our next member event!
