Once again, at the Maria Falco Trust, we like to offer a little something extra to our kind supporters. Not only do our events offer a truly special experience, but many of our guests welcome the opportunity to meet others whose lives have been touched by breast cancer.
Celebrity chefs Giancarlo and Katie Caldesi (Return to Tuscany) are great friends of the charity and have hosted several events for us. They have both presented cookery demonstrations and Giancarlo offered himself as an auction prize at our last ball. The winning bidder hosted a dinner party for eight guests with Giancarlo providing the food.
Our first cookery event was a cookery school session for 25 people. Giancarlo and Katie taught our guests the art of Italian cookery and then joined them for a self-cooked three course meal.
This was followed by a cookery demonstration at Wanstead. Again, the Caldesis helped us out by sending one of their chefs to demonstrate the cookery skills.
Our most recent cookery event was, perhaps our most special. For just £50, guests watched a cookery demonstration by three of the chefs from Celebrity Kitchen. This was followed by a three course meal, including wine and a chance to chat with the chefs.
