"Big Night" for Big FLAVOR!, The Culinary Center of Kansas City, Thursday, 03. October 2019

One of the greatest foodie movies of all time, “Big Night” is the story of two brothers, recent immigrants to America, who in an effort to save their authentic New Jersey restaurant from a rival Italian restaurant, put on an evening of incredible authentic Italian food and music.
Join us as we go beyond the movie set taking you back to the land crisscrossed by mountains, bordered by seas, drenched by sun, and forever enriched by the genius of da Vinci, Michelangelo, Puccini, Sinatra, Bocceli, and Louis Prima.  Your senses will be spellbound as we recreate their meal right down to the moment in the movie where the cult Italian dish known as Timpano, (layers of sausage, ragu, eggs and pasta sealed in a pastry dough) is pulled from the oven, flipped over and sliced, all to the applause of the audience of diners.
It’s a food movie for sure, but it is so much more.  It is about the food and music of Italy not as a subject, but as a language by which one can speak to the gods, seduce and inspire emotion.  We promise not only an authentic experience as close to the movie as we can get right down to the extra-long tables dressed in white linens, highlights of the Louis Prima music, sung by members of KC’s own, Society of Song, and because when it’s a FLAVOR! event, we’ll be taking the experience to BIGextremes.  This means you’ll be an integral part of this big night of food, big night of music -  some we’ll even need you to sing along with us- and while you’re at bring your big hair!
The wine will flow, lots of songs you’ll know. Sing acapella, maybe dance a gay Tarantella….this is sure to be one Big Night to savor and one great event for FLAVOR!
