Chef Simone is Coming to Georgetown

Via Umbria is starting off the New Year with Simone Proietti-Pesci, Italian Chef/Owner of Le Delizie del Borgo in Bevagna, Italy.

Simone's restaurant, nestled in a corner on one of the medieval city'sprincipal piazzas, is a magnet for gastronomes, attracting diners from afar with his menu of traditional and modern dishes and a wine list that draws heavily from Umbria, Tuscany, the Piemonte and across Italy.

Throughout January, learn the secrets of Umbrian cooking and la dolce vita with chef Simone right here in Georgetown at one of Via Umbria's special events, including pasta making classes, wine and beer tastings, and a fantastic Umbrian Food and Wine Tasting.

Simone is also available for private cooking classes and in-home dinners on select nights in January.
