Teddy Diggs will fire up the grill with renowned author Katie Parla to host the Tasting Rome feast, a culinary tour of the side street kitchens and hidden hearths of Italy’s capital. Diggs and Parla first met in Rome for pasta at acclaimed restaurant Flavio, a meal that served as the inspiration for the their own collaborative dinner in Chapel Hill.
Hosted at Il Palio, the Tasting Rome dinner will delight guests with a multi-course menu reminiscent of an intimate dinner one might enjoy on the cobblestone streets of Rome. The evening will feature Rome’s quintessential dishes from Parla’s cookbook along with hidden gems discovered during each chef’s travels. In true Italian fashion, Diggs and Parla will craft dishes that also reflect the local flavors and fare by highlighting North Carolina ingredients.
Guests can enjoy a cocktail reception featuring passed appetizers at 6:30 p.m. followed by a seated dinner. Tickets may be purchased for $125 by calling 919-918-2545 and include signed copies of the Tasting Rome cookbook, wine pairings, tax and gratuity.
