Cancelled due to a conflict with the Santa Fe Opera, this special dinner event is back on the front burner. So, what happens when New Mexico's foremost olive oil expert collaborates with the Osteria d'Assisi's acclaimed executive chef? The answer: a special event menu to die for at the Osteria d'Assisi in Santa Fe on Wednesday, September 16 at 6pm (reservations at 505-986-5858).

Come see and taste for yourself as Diana Bruno and Chef Cristian Pontiggia conspire to bring you an unparalleled culinary experience. Each of five courses with wine pairings will be infused with Diana's exceptional Una Vita Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Diana and Chef Cristian will be on hand to guide you from appetizer through dessert, explaining how the olive oil enhances the flavors of the simple, fresh ingredients.

You'll also hear about the health benefits of this staple in the Mediterranean diet, and how to tell a real extra virgin olive oil from an imposter. And you'll come away with a new perspective on what the Greek poet Homer called "liquid gold." For the menu and more information on this unique Santa Fe dining experience


New Mexico's own Diana Dominica Bruno is a Certified Olive Oil Expert and purveyor of one of Italy's finest, artisanal extra virgin olive oils. Una Vita Olive Oil, introduced to the US earlier this year, is a product of Raviscanina, Diana's tiny ancestral village near Naples. The Osteria d'Assisi event is one in a summertime series of dinners, tastings and demonstrations featuring Diana and Una Vita Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
