Dinner with Frances Mayes at Signorello Estate

Dinner with Frances Mayes at Signorello Estate

Join Frances Mayes, bestselling author of Under the Tuscan Sun, at Signorello Estate for a virtual celebration of her new Tuscan Sun Cookbook presented by Castello di Casole

In all of Frances Mayes’s bestselling memoirs about Tuscany, food plays a starring role. This cuisine transports, comforts, entices, and speaks to the friendly, genuine, and improvisational spirit of Tuscan life, where cooking and eating are natural pleasures. In her first-ever cookbook, Frances and her husband Ed share recipes that they have enjoyed over the years as honorary Tuscans: food prepared in a simple, traditional kitchen using robust, honest ingredients.

Chef Michael MacMillan will artfully recreate these wonderful dishes, each paired with a wine especially selected by Signorello Estate.

Seating is limited so purchase your tickets now!  Tickets are only $295 per person and include an autographed book (a $29.99 value), a five-course dinner with paired wines, and premier seating at the Joshua Bell concert this evening.
