Dinner with the Maestro 
Did you know that Maestro Mark Russell Smith's passion extends beyond the stage and into the kitchen? He has picked up some wonderful culinary techniques during his stays in Italy and you could be the beneficiary of his talents by bidding on a seat at the table...or buy the whole table and make it your party with friends!
