In addition to the cook-off, the event will also feature popular Italian songs performed by Fred Adams on the mandolin, opera excerpts from a quartet of singers with international credentials, a first viewing of the proposed murals for the newly-renovated “Sons of Italy,” a Marco Polo raffle, and antipasti, insalate, vino e dolci.
