Italian Food, Wine & the Arts
For those who love the foods of Italy, wine, and the arts, Oldways held a series of special events at the Martha Richardson Fine Art Gallery and Bellezza Home & Garden, both in the Boston area. These events introduced Italian food, wine, and the beautiful watercolor paintings of artist Suzanne Heller, which are featured in Faith Heller Willinger’s cookbook, Adventures of an Italian Food Lover (available at the Oldways Bookstore). Suzanne's paintings were shown in both the Martha Richardson Fine Art Gallery (38 Newbury Street, 4th floor, in Boston) and Patti Kraft's Belezza Home & Garden (1021 Boylston Street [Route 9 Westbound], Newton, MA) between September 17 and October 22, 2011.
Oldways and our friends organized three tastings to celebrate the exhibition of Suzanne's stunning watercolors, with three of Boston's most exciting food and wine experts:
- The Perfect Italian Cheese Plate with Ihsan Gurdal of Formaggio Kitchen
- Italian Wine Stars with Helen Gallo of Winebow
- Olive Oils from the Regions of Italy with Sabatino & Company
