Cookbook author Marchetti on entertaining

Cookbook author Domenica Marchetti will be giving a cooking demonstration and signing copies of her new book, Big Night In: More than 100 Wonderful Recipes for Feeding Family and Friends Italian-Style, at the Seasonal Cook on Saturday, November 29 in the West Main Market. Marchetti, author of the 2006 cookbook The Glorious Soups and Stews of Italy, has collected 100 dishes she uses to entertain.

From her website:

You don’t have to dine out to enjoy a memorable meal. These days, more and more of us are finding that our favorite meals, the ones we cherish the most, are those we prepare in our own home and share with family and friends around the dining room table or on the backyard patio.

With appetizers and antipasti, soups and salads, pasta, rice and savory tortes, great main courses, side dishes and indulgent desserts, Big Night In gives you everything you need to casually entertain at home. There’s even a brunch menu for those wanting a ââ?¬Ë?big morning in.’ Let Big Night In help you create the treasured experience of sharing a meal with those you love.

Not sure about the time yet. For more information, contact the Seasonal Cook, 416 West Main Street, by calling 295-9355 or sending them an email at

To read about the Huja is inspiring, however, to know the man himself is a priveledge & honour. He's a man who sees the future like no other and i've had the great opportunity in meeting him and having a cup of tea with him in his inimitable home. He's done a fantastic job with the city and if elected City Council, I'm sure the people of Charlottesville will have no regrets with the illutrious ideas of a Humble yet profound Sikh man.
