Farm-foraged Italian dinner at The Mountain

Enjoy an Italian dining experience hosted by Chef Sandra Stefani

Join The Mountain Retreat & Learning Center for a hands-on approach to al fresco Italian dining on Sept. 12! If your favorite food and wine event was cancelled this year, The Mountain Retreat and Learning Center can fill that gap with a COVID-friendly, farm-foraged Italian dinner that will feed your culinary heart!

One of the many farm-foraged meals at The Mountain.

Hosted by Chef Sandra Stefani, originally from Pisa, Italy. Stefani arrived in Washington DC in 1979 and started her career at the famous Italian Restaurant Cantina d’Italia, learning to cook “hands on” from the late great Chef Joseph Muran de Assereto.

Together tour and learn more about the mission of The Mountain, bringing community closer to their food, by picking fresh ingredients from The Many Hands Peace Farm on site.
