After last year’s successful Passover dinner at Perbacco we decided to do it again. Over 290 guests ate classic Italian Jewish recipes for the Passover holiday ( recipes from my cookbook Cucina Ebraica) and wow, were they happy! I guess we will have to do it again next year, as we had so many requests for a repeat performance. Chef Staffan Terje and his staff cooked their hearts out. and Umberto Gibin ran the dining room like the pro that he is. Sommelier Mauro selected ideal wines to match the food. I am attaching the menu so you can see what was served. Stay tuned for next year’s dinner.

Wow am I sorry I missed this Seder! It all sounds so Divinely Imaginative. And what a steal for $49. Maybe next year…
Although I’m not Jewish I’m currently looking into Jewish meals because I’m writing a story that has a character who’s Jewish and who’s going out for dinner. This has really given me a good idea for what she’ll take in the restaurant 🙂
