Upcoming Events

The October Monthly Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, October 18th at the 16th century Sympò Ex-Chiesa (via Lame, 83) and will be centered on us as we celebrate the 20th Anniversary for IWF. This will be an evening of sharing and exchanging as a group in a buffet meal where we are the chefs and the guests! Each member is encouraged to contribute a dish and the Board of Directors will provide the celebratory spirits and cheer.  We hope you can join us in marking this milestone. Read on to learn about a special initiative for IWF at its 20th!

From the Board of Directors: Contact Us

  • As you ponder what to prepare for our anniversary meal, write it down!  Tell us about that dish; where it comes from, who taught you to make it and if you have tips or tricks on procuring all the ingredients you need. We wish to collect these culinary contributions and personal narratives for October's Monthly Meeting and create a commemorative IWF 20th Anniversary Cookbook. Send your recipe contributions to web@iwfbologna.com
