Check out a Book Dinner at Tavolo as it plays host to the Author of Markets of New England, Christine Chitnis, of Providence, RI. The event will be on Tuesday, November 8 at 7 p.m., and will feature a cornucopia of local food with an Italian accent! Tavolo chefs Chris Douglass and Nuno Alves will present a three course prix five menu of foods from Boston's urban farm markets to herald the arrival of the book at area bookstores. The book highlights the best of what you can find at 50 artisan and farmers markets from all over New England.
