Here is how it works...

Choose a Hand-Made Ceramic Bowl to Keep & Feast on Delicious Pasta

Restaurants Compete in “Best Pasta Sauce Contest”

“The Italian phrase mangia means ‘Eat’ but it carries the richer cultural meaning to eat with great enjoyment,” says Benton Jones, CCMoA Acting Executive Director. “What’s more enjoyable than sitting down in the warmth of community and eating delicious pasta from artistic bowls handmade by our wonderful artists and students with love?”


Each guest will choose from decorated bowls of different colors and sizes that were created by the museum’s Ceramics Instructor Nat Doane and volunteer pottery students. The students have been hard at work throwing, trimming, and glazing these pasta bowls. Every guest will take their chosen bowl home as a remembrance of this shared event.


A choice of either ziti or spiralized vegetables will be offered. Multiple popular restaurants will compete for “Best Meat Sauce” and “Best Veggie Sauce.” The competing restaurants are to be announced, so stay tuned!


The winning restaurants will receive a beautiful handmade ceramic platter created by Nat Doane.


Guests will also have a chance to win a special pasta bowl handmade by the President of the CCMoA Board of Trustees, Kathleen Fowler and Nathaniel Doane, the Ceramics Instructor at the museum.


Pottery student end event organizer, Elizabeth Sweeney, said, “After the success of our first Mangia events, we are thrilled to again offer this fun, family friendly, and unique event.”

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Dennis Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.
