    I went to the Callas book presentation in a Munich Hugendubel (Fünf Höfe) store yesterday. Where Bruno Tosi did present the new book La Divina in Cucina. Bruno did share some interesting insights about Callas and her live. It was a very nice presentation and well moderated. I was surprised to see how many people did attend the presentation and how well it was received. Bruno did autograph the book at the end and there was quite a queue of people asking for a signature. Talking to some of the folks working at Hugendubel this book is expected to be a huge success.
