Night of Napoli Cuisine at Porsena Restaurant

In Food on March 3, 2012 at 3:59 pm

Chef Sara Jenkins celebrates the CUISINE OF NAPOLI at Porsena, a cuisine of the sun in the shadow of the volcano, Monday, March 19th, 5:30PM-10PM. Neapolitans are the original macaroni eaters, famed for eating spaghetti with their hands from street side stands in the 18th century.

The passion Neapolitans have for pastasciutta and tomatoes seems an apt inspiration for a special menu. While Neapolitan-style pizza has taken the U.S. by storm, Chef Sara wants to showcase some of the other classics of this cuisine.
