J'AI TESTE // FOOD EXPERIENCES

... the Social dinner (by MHKSD),  the olfactive aperitivo (@Magna Pars Hotel), the flashmob dinner (by Cena con me),  the night shopping in EATALY, the brunch 2.0 by James Beard in Galleria Vittorio Emmanuele, the supermarket of the future (by COOP for EXPO) ...

I got my first multisensory meal experience.

Imagine not just eating, but eating while you get a story about the products you’re tasting. You may tell me: "well, it’s something common nowadays; we tend more and more to educate people on what they eat". Now, imagine that this story is not told by someone, but by a movie projection on the walls, on the table, with the help of lights and music while you ‘re seating and eating.

I had the chance to meet Maestro Iginio

I cooked pizza with the youngest and trendiest pizzaiolo of Italia.

The first time I saw Ciro Oliva, it was for “ChePizza” event in Milan. I tried his fried pizza with fresh cheese and lemon zest and got a foodgasm. That day I got struck by his joviality that was contaminating everyone talking to him. The second time I saw him was for “Le strade della Mozzarella” event.
