Tribute to My Homeland

May 5, 2016 at 6:30 pm9:30 pm

Gennaro’s 5 North Square 5 North Square Boston, MA 02113 United States

Chef Marisa Iocco is one of the country’s most well known (and rare) native Italian female chefs…and she belongs to Boston. With a fine arts education, her mamma’s food instincts and a few American phrases, Iocco landed here in 1988 when the city began acquiring a palate; and ever since, she’s sated Boston diners with the treasured regional cooking that shaped her youth, and by elevating traditional Italian-American dishes. Come revel in Iocco’s story at this event honoring her newly published memoir/cookbook, “Every Menu Is A Love Story”, where she’ll read passages from signed books that trace her culinary story against a backdrop of the music, bites and sips that have earned Iocco accolades from “Esquire”,”Condo Nast Traveler” and countless local media.

Reservations are required – to reserve, please call the restaurant directly at 617-720-1050. Credit cards will be required and will be charged immediately (full refund if reservation is cancelled). Space is limited, so be sure to make a reservation!

The price of admission includes a signed copy of “Every Menu Is a Love Story,” wine and passed tastings of recipes from the book, plus live music jazz combo.
