Book Signing and Meet & Greet with cooking instructor and friend-of-the-shop Viola Buitoni at Semolina Artisanal Pasta.

Viola Buitoni, a San Francisco based chef instructor and food writer, was born in Rome and raised in Perugia, Italy. With stories and knowledge from six generations, her recipes cross the best of local agriculture with Italian artisanal foods. Italy by Ingredient is her first cookbook.
