One of our first posts, Contessa Collections, and still favorite place for food, gifts and chocolates is sponsoring and inviting us to a special event. A shipment to Contessa is on its way from Italy, and Maria Luisa Fabbri wants us to join her and her staff to sample the ingredients just landing.
Contessa will be serving a sit down dinner on Monday, Oct. 28 – 7:00 pm, Friday, Nov. 1 – 7:00 pm and in case none of the above works, a final event on Monday, Nov. 4 at 7pm.
Maria promises that the menu will tickle your taste buds, and perhaps provide inspiration for your own upcoming entertainments! The dinner price is $35 per person, and will include appetizers, Fabbri’s Pasta entrée, and desserts! Your glasses will be adequately filled as well!
Please check your calendars and call Contessa Collections at 626-744-0252 Event address: Contessa Collections 380 South Lake Ave, 101 Pasadena 91101. Space is limited, so one should call as soon as possible for a reservation.
I have been to Tuscany and to the lovely town of Deruta where you will find some of the most gorgeous ceramics in all of Italy. When you walk into the Contessa Italian Home Collection, your jaw drops! The pottery is some of the most beautiful I have ever seen. In addition, there is a small collection of jewelry and specialty Italian food items, including great Balsamic vinegars and olive oils. The pastas are made from the same recipes that were used 1,000s of years ago–pure, tasty and divine! — Gail R, Pasadena
