By popular demand for the fourth consecutive year, the Italy-America Chamber of Commerce Has been proposing an increasingly popular initiative known as the Italian Cooking Show. The 4-series cooking class with the closing Grand Finale event has proven to be effective in promoting Italy’s authentic culinary tradition and genuine products.With Italy’s regional cuisines as the focus, each event will pit two top chefs from renowned local Italian restaurants against each other in a culinary battle before an attentive audience eager to learn the various cooking methods used in preparing some of Italy’s most distinctive dishes. Paring wines will also be served to complement the savory and enticing food prepared, making it possible to the audience to relish this entire experience to its full extent.This third event will feature Chef Massimo Giannattasio from AGO with the regional cuisine of TUSCANY and Chef Giancarla Bodoni from ESCOPAZZO with the regional cuisine of LIGURIA.
The class will run from 6:30 to 8:00 PM and an Italian Food & Wine festival will immediately follow the cooking demonstration until 9:30 PM, allowing guests to sample Italian delicacies and wines.The reception will be open to the entire community of Italian food lovers.With the idea of celebrating authentic Italian ingredients and food & beverage products, the reception will propose the true spirit of an Italian Food and Wine Festival.
