La Settimana Della Cucina Italiana (Italian Cuisine Week) is running worldwide from the 20th to the 26th of November this year.
On the 21st of November La Bella Italia will have a special event – Cibo Arte – starting at 6 pm. We will screen the film Theatre of Life followed by a little demonstration of one of the featured dishes, with an aperol spritz and nibbles on arrival, and a three course menu.
All courses will be made using only excess food items – because Nonna always said never to waste anything!
Theatre of Life is about the Refettorio Ambrosiano, an extraordinary soup kitchen conceived by renowned chef Massimo Bottura during the Milan 2015 World’s Fair. Massimo invited 60 of the world’s best chefs to join him to cook for refugees and the homeless of Milan. All meals were made from the waste food from the Expo.

Feudi di San Gregorio was established in 1986 by two Irpinian families, and has its roots in the town of Sorbo Serpico in the province of Avellino. Since its early days, the winery has focused on the preservation of authentic top quality productions and on the definition of a premium quality standard to meet the highest and most severe market requirements. The new winery was inaugurated in 2004, reflecting Feudi di San Gregorio’s wish to blend its long-standing tradition with a futuristic architectural project.
