June Book Signings and Events

Mike Geno and Rocco with the book

While I’ve been in Italy, the team at Di Bruno Bros. has been hard at work getting our new book, The Di Bruno Bros. House of Cheese, into the hands of hot celebs, like this kooky monkey (a.k.a. Mike Geno).

Below, you’ll find a list of upcoming signings, tastings, classes, and demos. I look forward to seeing you there! For ongoing events, look for a “Book Events” tab on my menu bar. I hope to post that later today. Cheers!
