Spring Luncheon – Pranzo di Primavera 2013

Spring Luncheon April 2013 – Peninsula Italian American Social Club, San Mateo

Chef Andrea prepared lunch for us.  He is from Sicily but has worked in many parts of Italy, including Folgaria in Trentino. The meal consisted of mixed antipasti and bruschetta con funghi (mushrooms) as a starter, followed by a choice of rigatoni con ragu al cinghiale (wild boar sauce) or pasta al pesto.  For the main dish there was a choice of chicken piccata, veal scallopine ai funghi (mushrooms) or eggplant parmesan, and for dessert strudel and ice-cream.

Laura Vitlacil’s nephew, Eugenio Bortolon, who attended the spring luncheon at the Peninsula Italian American Social Club. At the event he was pleasantly surprised to meet up with Michael Job. A few years ago Michael had given a talk at Eugenio’s high school in Borgo Valsugana. He spoke about his life’s journey, and in particular, his Vietnam War experience.
