Food, Film, and Friendship, Italian Style

The Smithsonian Resident Associates do quite a few great foodie events, but this one looks particularly fun so wanted to pass along details. Food films are so great, especially when you discuss them with other foodies.

Food, Film, and Friendship, Italian Style
With Mario Batali, Lidia Bastianich, and Marisa Tomei
Sunday, July 8, 2 p.m. at George Washington University's Lisner Auditorium
730 31st Street at H Street in NW DC
Prepare to be entertained, enlightened, or just charmed as friends, colleagues, and New Yorkers—Italian American celebrity chefs Mario Batali and Lidia Bastianich, and film star Marisa Tomei—share an afternoon considering the merits of Italian cuisine and why food and film make for such intriguing and delightful pairings.
During this entertaining afternoon highlighted by video clips, these stars of culinary TV and film fame talk about food and why the culinary arts have become so prominent in today’s popular culture.
Moderator Jim Bohannon, a popular radio talk-show host, will bring his own special perspective to the lively discussion.
