Food and Wine

Loved throughout the world, Italian cuisine offers a great variety of tastes and ingredients. Tracing its roots from the 4th century BC, the flavors and dishes of Italy have been influenced by rulers and conquerors, political upheaval and the discovery of the New World. Each region and even province has its own food traditions, specialties and wines.

From pasta making to seasonal dishes and wine tastings, the Italian Cultural Center offers many events to celebrate Italy’s rich culinary landscape.
