Mr Natale said the make sauce day would offer half hour lessons, enabling families to book in and experience the joys of making sauce.
It’s a step-by-step explanation of the whole process including tomato production, cooking and bottling.
Plus families get to taste the difference home-made sauce can make to a variety of sauce-based recipes.
Darryn Lyons is also supporting this initiative by saying,
“Greater Geelong is made up of people from many different cultural backgrounds.
It’s important that we appreciate and preserve our region’s unique heritage.
Greater Geelong’s Italian community is a great example of cultural diversity. And Club Italia’s Sauce Day gives everyone the opportunity to learn more about Italian food and its importance to the Italian way of life.
I urge people to go along and embrace this unique cultural event.”
Additionally on the day, Club Italia’s famed bocce rink will be open for everyone to play and there will be exhibits celebrating the history of the club and the Italian community in Geelong.
