Pasta Alla Tavola
September 15-16 | 2 seatings each day at 12p & 2p | Sharon Springs, NY |$25 | GET TICKETS HERE
Step back in time to enjoy a modern version of an Old World classic, the Alla Tavola. Sicilian farmers would return from the fields to a family-style lunch served by village women cooking huge pots of pasta, sauce, meatballs and sausage over an open fire. The meal was served directly on the table and shared by all with red table wine and spring water.
Our Alla Tavola will be served in the same tradition but on a hardy vinyl tablecloth designed for family-style dining. We supply the utensils and an Alla Tavola bib. Beverages and desert included.
Rose Trapani, whose recipes are featured in our latest cookbook, A Seat at the Table, will welcome guests and share stories of growing up in Sicily, her mother’s beloved recipes, and what an Alla Tavola was like in her village. Fellow Sicilian and Steve Salerno, proprietor of Justine’s in Cobleskill, is our chef.

Belgium Comes to Cooperstown
August 3-4 | Brewery Ommegang, Cooperstown, NY | GET TICKETS HERE
Each year, Belgium Comes to Cooperstown with the area’s largest celebration of food and beer. This year’s VIP dinner will be inspired by the recipes from our latest cookbook, A Seat at the Table. Join us for a wonderful end-of-summer celebration (camping space is available!)
Belgium Comes to Cooperstown offers 3,000 lucky guests the opportunity to taste the very best Belgian beer in the world, including hard-to-find Belgian imports as well as Belgian-inspired beers from the top breweries in North America.
The Ommegang, for which the brewery is named, is a renowned festival in the city of Brussels, Belgium. The first Ommegang welcomed Emperor Charles the Fifth to the city, and the celebration is still held annually. While the emperor won’t be in attendance in Cooperstown this year, nearly 100 Belgian and Belgian-style breweries will be, each pouring their best offerings against the idyllic backdrop of the brewery, which was itself modeled after farmstead breweries found in Belgium. As always, the festival promises more than just great beer. Gourmet food vendors, live music, and a chance to camp under the stars alongside some of the world’s leading brewers and fellow craft beer enthusiasts make the weekend truly unique. The festivities begin Friday, August 3 at 6p.
