Meet Kathy McCabe and Frances Mayes

Thursday, March 28 - Friday, March 29


Bringing Italy to Georgetown and Your Home!

Join two of our favorite Italophiles and celebrate all things Italian for two full evenings of multi-sensory eating, drinking and celebrating our favorite country. Kathy McCabe, dynamic host of the PBS travel series Dream of Italy and Frances Mayes, author of acclaimed novel Under the Tuscan Sun are fresh of their newest project- a collaborative PBS special entitled Dream of Italy: Under the Tuscan Sun. We're excited to invite fellow fans to join us for an evening learning about their travels through Cortona over an evening of exceptional food and drink.

Join us on Thursday, March 28th, as we host Kathy and Frances for a dinner inspired by the recipes in Frances' new travel book See You In The Piazza. What better way to hear all about her travels 'through the boot', than to taste your way through her favorite chapters as you follow along with your very own signed copy of her newest book. Over dessert and coffee, get a sneak peek inside Kathy's world as she screens her PBS special set to premier this Summer.

Next, on Friday, March 29th join us for a Frances Mayes takeover of Via Umbria. See how we transform our space into a series of mini piazza's, all inspired by France's book. Guests will have the opportunity to meet Frances, taste food from all over Italy, enjoy a Spritz as you travel from piazza to piazza and take home a signed copy of France's book at the end of the night.
