when it comes to Italian cuisine, one week is not enough!
When it comes to Italian cuisine, one week is not enough! From the 23th to the 29th of November the Italian Cuisine Week is celebrated all around the globe. In Vietnam, the rich calendar of related events will stretch from the 12th November to the 13th December!
The Italian Cuisine Week in the World is an initiative involving the whole network of 296 diplomatic and consular missions and Italian Cultural Institutes to promote the Italian culinary culture, which is at the core of the Mediterranean diet and so central to the Italian identity and lifestyle. Over a thousand events will be organized around the world during this week, to promote the Italian cuisine and its regional varieties.
Over 10 events are in calendar for this edition, organized in cooperation with many local partners in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang and Nha Trang.
They include masterclasses with Italian chefs and sommeliers, food and wine tastings and pairings, cultural events and exhibitions, cooking classes, Italian products fair in deli stores, thematic lunches and dinners with Vietnamese celebrities and Italian protagonists of the culinary scene in Vietnam.
Last but not least, dozens of Italian restaurants all over Vietnam, from Hanoi to HCMC, from Da Nang to Nha Trang, from Vung Tau to Da Lat, will present for the occasion authentic and original Italian specialties and menus, at an affordable price, to be made available to customers from 12th to 29th November 2020.
The ambition is to raise attention on the Italian cuisine and products, their connection with conviviality, hospitality, lifestyle and healthiness, but also on the enrichment driven by exchanges between Italian and Vietnamese culinary traditions. The activities are also a way to pay homage to the entrepreneurs and the workers of the Italian restaurants, a sector that strongly contributes to our economy and gives prestige to the Country and is now greatly suffering the consequences of the pandemic.
