Join the Allendale Branch Library as it hosts “Regional Italian Pasta Dishes,” a cooking demonstration and tasting featuring Chef Isaac Greenhouse, on Saturday, June 27, at 2 p.m., at 1130 S. Marengo Ave. The program, which is free, is part of an ongoing series designed to spotlight the Allendale Branch Library’s culinary book collection.
After working in the fashion industry, Isaac Greenhouse decided to attend culinary school to follow his passion for food. While attending culinary school, he worked in a kitchen assisting an executive chef and a pastry chef to expand his knowledge. Upon graduating, he started as a prep cook in an Italian kitchen and found his love for Italian cuisine. After two years, he is now in charge of making the pastas (tagliatelle, ravioli, and tortellini) and breads at Magnone Trattoria in Riverside.
For this demonstration and tasting, Greenhouse will prepare three regional Italian pasta dishes that represent his training, knowledge and passion for Italian food: aglio e olio (Campania), cacio e pepe (Rome), and prosciutto with cream (Emilia-Romagna).
