Aiuto! Aiuto!

Festaalfresco_1 My friends, Lis of La Mia Cucina and I are in desperate need of a little “aiuto”, otherwise known as help Italian style! You see Lis and I would like to celebrate the final days of another glorious summer with an outdoor feast.

There’s just one problem. We seem to have forgotten the food.

I know what you’re thinking. How could we forget the food?

Well what can I say?! Between blogging, work, gardening, summer parties, etc., we just plain forgot!

So here’s what we need: we need you to show up for the feast with a dish to contribute to the table. You can make anything you like as long as it features one fresh ingredient. Consider it a way to celebrate summer’s bounty! The party is scheduled for September 5 so post the dish you are featuring any time before that date. Be sure to e-mail Lis at or myself at with the link to your entry. We will post the round-up on September 5th.

Please join us in this end-of-summer celebration and help us fill our table with some incredible food!

Clarification:  I’ve received several questions about La Festa al Fresco so I just want to clarify a few things …

  • You have to post your contribution any time before September 5th. The round-up will be posted on September 5th.
  • By fresh ingredient, we mean an ingredient that is in season wherever you live. The idea is that whatever you contribute should feature a fresh, local ingredient. You can by all means cook that ingredient.
  • By no means does the dish you contribute have to be Italian in nature. You can use whatever cuisine you wish as inspiration!
