Tuscany, Nose to Tail – An Afternoon with World-Famous Butcher Dario Cecchini
Presented by Caputo Brothers Creamery
Sun. January 14, 2018 at 3:00 pm
-This is a rental presentation-
Included in Ticket Price - 1:30-3:00p.m. - Artisan MeatUp!, a showcase of local food artisans, will take place prior to the show.
Legendary Italian butcher Dario Cecchini is known all over the world for his over-the-top style and his ‘no waste’ philosophy. This ‘nose to tail’ afternoon will put his artistry on display as he carves a pig on stage and puts on a dynamic presentation full of storytelling and maybe a little AC/DC!
Dario’s family has been in the butchery business for eight generations in the small town of Panzano-in-Chianti and doing ‘nose to tail’ cooking since before it was the hot culinary term. “A butcher represents the most delicate link in the food chain. He must take the responsibility to show and teach respect for the animal that has given its life to sustain us,” he says. Cecchini believes that “no cut is any better than another, the cow is not made up of only the filet and steak. Every bit can be great, from head to tail, if cooked properly.” His philosophy of “no waste” is applied in his butcher shop and his restaurants Solociccia and Officina della Bistecca.
His butcher shop, Antica Macelleria Cecchini, is a sight to behold, with AC/DC usually blaring from the speakers and Dario behind the counter, wielding a cleaver and quoting Dante’s Inferno.
Cecchini his been featured on “Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations,” PBS’ “Dream of Italy,” and in countless publications such as the New York Times, Bon Appetit.com, and Lucky Peach.
*VIP tickets include an event poster and meet & greet with Dario following the event.

Presented by the Penn State York Office of Student Affairs
Thu. April 5, 2018 at 7:00 pm
*This is a free event, and does not require tickets for entrance.
Marcia Boyesen and Roger Latzgo began collaborating on musical programs nearly two decades ago. Since that time, the duo has won national acclaim, including the prestigious International Angel Awards for Excellence in Media. Their numerous recordings are popular worldwide. Together they have studied with art song masters Elly Ameling and Dalton Baldwin. Marcia's lyric soprano voice combines with Roger's classical experience in piano and guitar to weave a musical tapestry that brings their Story Songs to life. In their Scandinavian Heritage-theme program, Marcia and Roger perform Hans Christian Andersen Songs & Stories. Songs include Roger's musical settings of "The Ugly Duckling," "The Steadfast Tin Soldier," "The Little Match Girl" and a musical version of a Hans Christian Andersen story titled "The Millennium." In it, Andersen imagines what travel in Europe will be like one thousand years from his own time. The master storyteller spins it with uncanny accuracy. Marcia and Roger are on a musical mission: to enhance understanding of Scandinavian culture and increase an appreciation of quality literature through the power of music.
