As many of you already know, June is Italian Heritage month. And to celebrate, we have partnered with the Italian Cultural Centre to offer a taste of Vancouver's Italy. This month there are so many opportunities to explore the tastes, traditions and innovations of Italian cuisine in Vancouver, and we want to make sure you know all about it!
Our friends at the Italian Cultural Centre have planned a variety of food themed events including a class on cannoli and baba making, a wine tasting, an Italian food fair, and of course, Il Mercato, Vancouver's only Italian market. They will also host a number of cultural events: movie screenings, concerts, a performance of Shakespeare's Romeo e Giulietta, and a special evening celebrating Italian Opera. You can find their full events calendar here:
A number of local Italian restaurants are featuring special Mangia Vancouver menus this month. Follow the link below to see a list of participating restaurants:
