Description
 
March 15 marks the Ides of March, which most people associate with the assassination of Julius Caesar. However, most would be surprised to learn that March was the first month of the year in the oldest Roman calendar system, and the first fifteen days of Martius were filled with New Year celebrations featuring picnics, drinking and general revelry. And, well, that’s good enough of an excuse for us to do (and eat) as the Romans do! Chef-turned-butcher-shop owner, Nick Macri of Reading Terminal Market’s La Divisa Meats, returns to COOK for an evening devoted to the distinctive cuisine of Rome, including supplì (fried rice balls); bucatini all'amatriciana; coda alla vaccinara (butcher style oxtail stew); and ricotta and citrus tart . Nick (@MeatManMacri) has taught classes across the city, won cooking competitions, and worked in some of Philly’s top kitchens, including Osteria and Southwark. Eventually, Nick took over the Border Springs Farm stand at Reading Terminal Market to realize his dream of having his own meat-filled storefront – La Divisa Meats.
