Next Event TBD

EVENT COORDINATOR: Don Cimorelli

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

TSDOI Members recommend restaurants for consideration, both Italian and Non-Italian that have luncheon hours. Members can register for lunch on the Signup Genius link below if they wish to attend. Each member pays for their own meal at the restaurant (Restaurant Automatically Adds Gratuity).

Attendees complete the restaurant evaluation form at the end of lunch and within a few days, the restaurant manager will receive a consolidated summary of the TSDOI dining experience.

No reviews are posted to social media by the individual attendees. The Lodge wishes to provide helpful feedback, both positive & constructive, to the restaurant manager to support their efforts to STAND OUT AMONG THE RESTAURANT COMPETITION and run a successful dining enterprise.

Here are more details:

Owner of Melina’s Fresh Pasta, Carmella, and her family are from Calabria – right on the toe of the Italian boot. In this class Carmella will teach you the hand rolled pasta making traditions of Southern Italy.

Made with flour and water and then shaped by hand, these chewy pastas pair well with any sauce. During the class we will make the dough and shapes from 3 Southern Italian regions. We will demonstrate how to make quick traditional regional sauces for each pasta shape.

Calabria – Fusilli with Aglio, Olio e Peperoncino

Campania – Cavatelli with pomodoro (tomato) sauce

Abruzzo – Anellini alla Pecorara (vegetable sauce)

We eat what we make! Note: This is typically enough pasta for a light to medium sized meal.

All participants receive a Melina’s Fresh Pasta Recipe Book via email after the class with the recipes from the class.

Maximum 24 participants
