An offer you can’t refuse, treats for Godfather 2

This  Sunday, Monday and Tuesday for our screenings of Godfather 2, chef Trish Eichelberger will be preparing tasty Italian treats to enhance your experience of this classic.  How else should one experience the viewing of a newly struck print of this masterpiece than with a heaping serving of bolognese on linguine?  Well maybe by finishing with her heavenly handmade cannoli stuffed with wine infused mascarpone.

Trish is fresh off our victory over all star restaurant Olivia in Alamo Iron Chef 5 and she is hot.

The  Insalata Caprese will feature heirloom tomatoes she handpicks right before the show.   Trish will also dip a hand into the very white truffle salt her sister brought back as a gift from her recent honeymoon in Italy to finish the salad.  Talk about putting yourself into your work, there are few chefs as unselfish as that in the world.  I have to say I don't think I could go there and I love to give my food the all but sheesh.

We will screen this, my favorite, chapter of the Godfather this Sunday at 12:45, Monday at 7:50 and Wednesday at 7:50.
