8/28 Ischia Porto:

The first trip Franco and I made to Italy with a group featured two weeks in Ischia, a small island in the Gulf of Naples, about 20 miles from Napoli. We enjoyed the most varied and delicious antipasti dishes that were prepared at our hotel owned by our partner in the travel business, Giorgio Orofino. I dutifully recorded our culinary experiences on that trip which have formed the bases for our understanding of the way South Italian chefs treat vegetables, shellfish, and pasta dishes. This dinner will be homage to the Orofino family and the marvelous cuisine of Campania. It will include one of Ischia’s most famous indigenous dishes, Coniglio Ischitana—hunters’ style rabbit. We will also enjoy vera pizza Napolitana, Pasta allo Scoglio, Melanzane al Funghetto, and Friarielle e Salsiccia, and other delectations. Taste our travels with us on August 28, 2019. - Jim Rua
