Vintage & Vine Italian Wine Dinner

Rich Italian flavors and full-bodied wines designed to arouse the senses and tantalize the palate await guests at the Vintage & Vine Italian Wine Dinner on September 8, 2012, hosted by Celebrity Chef Mary Ann Espositio of Ciao Italia with Mary Ann EspositoTM, the nationally-televised PBS series that is America’s longest-running cooking show. Esposito, of Durham, presents a three-course dinner catered by The White Apron and sponsored by Banfi Wines in the Goodwin Garden at Strawbery Banke as part of the Vintage & Vine festivities. The dinner, which requires a separate ticket, takes place from 7:30 - 9:30 p.m. and showcases the Italian flair of Chef Esposito’s new book, Ciao Italia Family Classics, which offers 200 time-honored recipes.

    Does Mary Ann ever get to the Pittsburgh, PA area? I would love to see her in person.

    Our local TV station doesnt air her programs much as of late.
