Ok, I know that I haven't been posting too many recipes recently, please forgive me, but the Italian Festival preparations are taking up all of my spare time now (and a bit more than that actually). But it is going to be a great day, and a chance for all the Italians in Auckland to get together, and all the Kiwis to live like an Italian for a day. And if you live in Auckland please come along, info in the poster below.
In occasion of the Festival Italiano the Dante Alighieri Society is also raising money for the Italian School for children (open to all children who wish to learn Italian, regardless of their ethnic background). The Dante is a non-profit registered charity, totally self-founded, and aims to keep the cost of the children classes really low. To help paying for tutoring and buying material raffle tickets will be on sale at the Festival, and you can also buy them at the Dante rooms in Freemans Bay community centre from Monday 15 October, 1 for $5 or 5 tickets for $20. And yes, I am selling them too, remind me if you meet me in the street! Only 3000 tickets printed, so more chances to win.
