Italian ‘SeptemberFest’ Coming to Boston Sounds Simply Mouthwatering
Here we go. This may just be the biggest fall event in Boston, and it's all about FOOD! Yum! And it's outside under the stars in the South Garden of Boston's Back Bay neighborhood at the Prudential Center.
You've heard of Eataly correct? This is Boston's vibrant Italian marketplace with an assortment of cafes, counters, restaurants, and even a cooking school comprising of 45,000 square feet of deliciousness and beyond. The slogan is Eat, Shop, and Learn, and after opening six years ago in the Back Bay, it's having its first-ever food festival called SeptemberFest. Boston Magazine says it's a one-of-a-kind seasonal celebration dedicated to food, drink, and having fun the Italian way.
This event is happening on Friday, September 16 from 6-10 p.m., and will transport all of us to Italy as we make our way, according to Eataly, through 15 stations with over 40 food and beverage tastings, live entertainment, hands-on demos, and more in this ultimate Italian experience. Eataly says it's all about watching their chefs grill signature bites, slice perfect pieces of prosciutto, make homemade pasta dishes, and present scrumptious desserts in front of your eyes, with part of the ticket proceeds benefiting Community Servings, a Boston area nonprofit that provides medically tailored meals for individuals and their families.
And you heard me mention beverages. Eataly says it will feature a variety of cocktails for you to tour, so you'll never look at craft creations the same again. Of course, this is Italian-style, so bubbles and Italian wines are on the night's menu as well as local beers.
While Young Love & the Thrills is playing, the night is also filled with fresh pasta demonstrations, mini painting classes, and even surprise moments that no one knows about until that night. How intriguing.
