Author, historian and photographer Anthony Riccio and award-winning Chef Silvio Suppa traveled to the farmlands of Campania, Italy, where they researched the origins of true Mediterranean cuisine. Join co-author Anthony Riccio and learn about life on Chef Silvio’s family farm in Sant'Agata de' Goti, and how Chef Silvio learned "l'arte della cucina," the art of cooking, from his grandmother. With its original recipes and first-hand research, the book presents the fascinating history of Campanian gastronomy, beginning with the ancient Samnites to the present-day dishes offered at Chef Silvio's Cafe Allegre in Madison, Connecticut. Join us for an author presentation and book signing.
