Festive Drinks at Home, 4 December

The President of the British-Italian Society, Mrs Olga Polizzi, and her husband Mr William Shawcross, generously opened their beautiful home in London to members of the Society on 4 December for an evening of festive drinks and chicheti. The Venetian chicheti were prepared by Skye McAlpine based on recipes from her book A Table in Venice.

It was a wonderful way to celebrate Christmas and the end of the year. The Society raised a substantial sum, in contributions from members to the event, to draw on in supporting good causes which reflect the Society's aims in the coming year.

We are grateful to Olga and William for their generous hospitality, and to Skye for her culinary contribution.
