Then stick around for our popular Virtual Happy Hour — our interactive FB event — and get to know your fellow Girlfriends from 8-9 pm ET.

Love in a Tuscan Kitchen - Reading and Tasting Event at Summerlin Golf Club in Las Vegas

Sheryl and Vincenzo will present a reading from Love in a Tuscan Kitchen during this tasting event in Las Vegas! The local chef will be cooking a few recipes from the book, including the Hot Chocolate "Love" Cake. This is where our love story started. We can't wait to see old friends in Las Vegas and meet new kindred spirits as we celebrate and honor the traditions and recipes of Italy together!

Prosecco and Biscotti at Omnivore Books

Vincenzo and I will be in San Francisco at Omnivore Books on Saturday, June 8 from 3-4 pm. Join us for a taste from the book (lavender ginger biscotti) and a glass of prosecco! I'll do a short reading from the book followed by discussion (bring your chef questions) and book signing.

If you love Italy, Italian food and culture, and enjoy a beautiful love story with recipes - you will love this book!

Share this with friends in the San Francisco area. We are looking forward to being back in a city we love.
