From the Board of Directors: Contact Us

  • Thank you to all the members who joined us this past Thursday at the October Monthly Meeting & 20th Anniversary celebration and in particular to Elisa Pampaloni for taking photos. You can find the photo album on the website. 
  • The Board wishes to mark the 20th Anniversary celebration by gathering recipes from each member and creating The IWF 20th Anniversary Cookbook. The book aims to offer all members the opportunity to share not just a dish, but a bit about themselves. Go beyond the ingredients and instructions and let us know what makes this dish special for you since these personal commentaries will add to the depth of the book. Send your recipe contributions to web@iwfbologna.com by October 31st. The recipe book will serve as a fundraiser for the new website and should be on sale in time for the holidays! Have a look at this sample layout on the website.
