Celebrate with us the 3rd Week of the Italian Cuisine in San Francisco! Join Viola Buitoni, Food Advisor for the Consulate General of Italy and the Italian Cultural Institute in conversation with Michelin-starred chef Maria Cicorella. Born in Rome and reared in Perugia, Italy, Viola Buitoni had an idyllic upbringing in a family estate immersed in a life that moved to the clock of seasonal food.

In 1985 she moved to New York City where she earned a business degree, only to find herself drawn to her deep passion for food. After a few years honing skills in professional kitchens, Viola poured her passion into a catering kitchen and fine foods shop in the heart of NY's Madison Avenue before moving to San Francsico. Since 2010, she has been teaching how to cultivate relationships at the market, by the stove, around the table, and to make Italian cooking part of every day life.
