Eden Hall Lodge Kitchen

Cost: Free

Join us in the Eden Hall Lodge for a pasta making workshop with visiting professor, Dr. Karima Moyer-Nocchi! During this workshop, you'll learn some traditional ways of making pasta and the history behind this food, which has always been an integral part of the Italian culinary landscape. After the workshop, participants will have a delicious pasta lunch.

Karima Moyer-Nocchi is a professor in the Modern Languages department at the University of Siena and also teaches Food Studies at the University of Rome, Tor Vergata, and the University of Oklahoma, Arezzo. Her research explores the affective, political, and economic implications of foodways and culinary traditions. She is author of Chewing the Fat - An Oral History of Italian Foodways from Fascism to Dolce Vita. Her most recent work The Eternal Table: A Cultural History of Food in Rome, an epic culinary history spanning from the pre-Romans to present day, will be published in January of 2019. Future musings include an autobiographical “assimilation” cookbook from the viewpoint of living (and cooking) in Italy as an immigrant with varied culinary interests. Moyer-Nocchi was born and raised in the US, and has been a permanent resident in Italy for 30 years and currently resides in Umbria.
