A Magically Sweet Christmas in Siena!

Last night we visited Giovanna and Margherita Bartoli, the owners of the Antica Drogheria Manganelli 1879, an historic shop in Siena. We learned about traditional Christmas recipes and products that date from the Middle Ages and that are still part of Italian cuisine today.

Our audience enjoyed learning about the shop, the products and a bit about Siena and its history and traditions. Thank you Giovanna and Margherita for joining us!
