From Italy with Love and Tiramisu'and live Mandolin

  • July 28, 2013 · 6:00 PM

Let's have an evening of food, wine and laughter cooking together and making new friends. I will provide the ingredients, pots, pans, plates, table linens, flatware, chairs, do the market........and everybody brings a bottle of an Italian wine and a glass. I am asking $ 20.00 per person to cover the expenses of the food ...etc. Please help me cleaning, I hate that. The Meetup is open to 30 people and the location is my home in Lafayette. I will email the attendees the address later.
