How it all began

In November, 2009, Paolo D'Erasmo, Mayor of Ripatransone and Chef Sandro Capecci, along with delegates from the region, spent time with the Culinary Arts students to create a menu and authentic fare for a reception at the Italian-American Cultural Center in Wilmington. The year prior, Chef Capecci worked with the students to produce food for some 2200 attendees at the Vendemia di Vinci Celebration on Wilmington's Waterfront. With a relationship established, including a trade partnership with the City of Wilmington, students were invited to travel to Italy to further explore the food of the country.

This page will be used to communicate the travels of the group throughout our stay in Italy.

The Cooks and Bakers Club at Delcastle Technical High School in Wilmington, Delaware is a crowd-drawing, volunteer cooking troupe that brings the kitchen experience to young children. All around northern Delaware, from the Ronald McDonald House to the Newark and New Castle Public Libraries to the confines of school itself, the Cooks and Bakers are introducing young participants to the unique science that is cooking.
