Sicilian chef-instructor Fabrizia Lanza will guest-host a dinner paired with Tasca d’Almerita wines on the patio at Indaco at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. The four-course dinner is a collaboration between Lanza and chef Michael Perez.

Lanza is the author of Olive, A Global History and the cookbook Coming Home to Sicily: Seasonal Harvests and Cooking at Case Vecchie. Her latest project is a Kickstarter-funded feature-length documentary called Sacred Flavors of Sicily about the slow food traditions associated with religious festivals of Sicily.
As the successor to the kitchen and garden at the Anna Tasca Lanza Cooking School in rural Sicily, Lanza instructs cooking lessons along with a five-day, educational “Food and Culture” workshop. Her mother, the late Anna Tasca Lanza, founded the cooking school in her home on the family’s Regaleali Wine Estate in 1989.
