Father Matthew Mauriello , pastor at St. Roch’s Church in Chickahominy, is famous throughout the diocese for his generous, “made-from-scratch” meals. On Saturday, June 8, 2013, Father “Matt” will lead an informal cooking demonstration on the basics of Italian cooking. The afternoon’s menu will be taken from his book From a Rectory Kitchen, a compilation of recipes derived from a 20-year collaboration with his good friend and cooking companion Franca Bosia Bertoli, a native of northern Italy (father Matt’s family hails from the south. The result will be a delicious three-course luncheon beginning with mouthwatering bruschetta, followed by Lasagna Bolognese and luscious homemade Tiramisu for dessert. Beverages will also be provided. Besides learning how to prepare these authentic Italian recipes, Father Matt will talk about their origins and how they have evolved into today’s popular Italian-American versions. Buon appetito! 11:00 am to 1:00 pm Greenwich Historical Society, Vanderbilt Education Center Members: $10; nonmembers: $15
