Mangia Italiano! Hilarity, delicious dishes and two over-the-top plus-size Italian sisters from Brooklyn, stars of their very own fictional cable television show, take you on a tour-de-force of Italian songs and cuisine as they sing “Volare, Botcha – Me” and more, dance, joke and laugh through a very special cooking lesson in “Cooking With the Calamari Sisters,” Dec. 29-Jan. 29 at the Herberger Theater Center, 222 E. Monroe St. in downtown Phoenix.
Straight from sold-out engagements across the country, be prepared to eat your heart out and laugh until your sides hurt as Delphine and Carmela perform outrageous musical numbers while designing their latest culinary offerings.
Don’t be surprised if they get a bit naughty when they update their treasured family recipes with saucy secrets and anecdotes that will leave you rolling in the aisles. And who knows? You may get a chance to sample these two sisters’ kitchen creations.
