'Food Of Love' Dinner Party

You are cordially invited to a special dinner party where we have a little experiment to see what would happen when you bring together a group of international people for a special meal and book reading at the inaugural ‘La Cena’. Our guests represent a modern diverse Scotland and come from Brazil, Ireland, France, Italy and Scotland and we thank them all for their participation. Italy and Love are synonymous so what better way to spend the most romantic day of the year when our host Eleonora Vanello (Instagram @ele_foodfairy) from Italy beautifully reads, in English, extracts from the ‘Food of Love’ by Anthony Capella. The story recalls Laura Patterson, an American exchange student in Rome who, fed up with being inexpertly groped by her young Italian beaus, decides there's only one sure-fire way to find a sensual man: date a chef. Then she meets Tomasso, who's handsome, young -- and cooks in the exclusive Templi restaurant. Perfect. Except, unbeknownst to Laura, Tomasso is in fact only a waiter at Templi -- it's his shy friend Bruno who is the chef.Recreating recipes from the ‘Food of Love’ Sabrina Damiani (Instagram @sabrinadamiani) artistically reproduces a menu to whet the appetite and initiate conversation amongst our guests.Listen into the conversations around the table from what is expected of men in the 21st Century, the latest netflix movie from Taylor Swift to ideas for the next dinner.Remember to follow us on Instagram @NibbleScotland and we would love to hear your reviews and feedback.
