Rusalka Feast

Saturday, November 12, 2016 - 6:00pm (Tucson)

Your hosts for this Eastern European Feast are Evie Stefenson-Marquart and Ed Marquart.  Evie is very knowledgeable about Eastern European foods, and her eye for beautiful plating will combine to give you a taste of what Rusalka may even have tasted when she left her underwater home and came on land to be with her beloved.  The little mushroom pieroszky are shaped like half moons and will be a tribute to the gorgeous aria sung by Rusalka as the Song to the Moon.  Join Evie and Ed for this unique dining experience in their Foothills home.
