Italian Gluten Free Dinner-YES!, it is possible and yummy too!

ATTENTION ATTENDING SECRET DINERS: Thanks for helping in the proper planning of the Italian GF Secret Dining Event. We will email you secret location Friday Morning- Attendance log is now closed! See you Friday Night!! And if you are REALLY brave bring a swimming suite and towel.

I am from Italy and I would be happy to prepare a great typical Italian dinner, made up of dishes American only dream of... if they have been in Italy and know they exist. I live in the Peninsula and if there is interest I'll send a couple sample menus for discussion

P.S. Bread will not be GF

      Hi Colleen, I am sorry for miscommunication, we sent you invitation invoice several times but you did not respond. It is impossible to plan a dinner properly for uncommitted guests, so we simply thought you were not coming. We hope to meet you another time Colleen and we are sorry you missed a great evening. Don't give up! Ciao

    Hi everyone. We are seriously planning Italian GLUTEN FREE Secret Dinner on MARCH 15 in the Peninsula. As a courtesy we ask you to please take your name off the list if you cannot attend, so as to make room for ones who can make it. Also please keep in mind that scheduling, shopping and cooking arrangements have to be made so we must have confirmed guests in order to move ahead. If you pay for your spot and cancel at least 6 days before event your money will be refunded. Wine is complementary, offered by us, as well as other items that are not on the menu list. Secret Dinners must have elements of surprise, right? :-)
    Saluti a tutti e buon weekend!

    Ok everyone, this kind of response is exciting but I started this the wrong way as I did not have a date set up, did not disclose the menu, did not talk about price and did not put a guest # limitation. I think I might have to cancel this meetup and start a brand new one, UNLESS you guys have a better suggestion.
