Italian food has long been touted as among the best in the world. Judge for yourself Wednesday when the Wilton Library brings in chefs Matthew Scialabba and Melissa Pellegrino to share their insiders' view of the recipes from Italy's countryside.
Scialabba and Pellegrino visited more than 30 family farms in Northern Italy as they worked on their cookbook "The Italian Farmer's Table," which serves up 150 recipes they found during their travels.
The farms offer room and board to travelers from Europe and North America looking for food that can't be found anywhere else, according to a library press release. Picking their vegetables minutes before serving and providing meats from free-range animals, the farms give visitors the quality taste experience they are looking for.
The book is filled with photographs and anecdotes from the chefs' time abroad. The pair will share a few of these stories as well as some recipes during their slide-show presentation at the library. The book will be available for purchase and signing.
