Ciao bella! On Sunday, June 26, 2022, Sea Me Events is hosting “A Taste of Italy” at Il Fiore in Collingswood (693 Haddon Ave.) Guests will be greeted with sparkling Italian Prosecco, indulge in a Five-Course meal, and dance The Tarantella!
Taste of Italy ventures away from well-known Italian cuisine and into traditional dishes such as Veal Carciofi, veal medallions with artichokes and tomatoes in a creamy, garlic white wine sauce. Additionally, guests will dine while immersing in traditional Italian dances, fashion, and history. Through Sea Me Events, learning continues outside of school in this energetically educational occasion.
Taste of Italy kicks off at noon on June 26, with a five-course meal including regional pasta dishes. This event is open to the public. Tickets:INFO
