Enjoying the celebration of Pellegrino Artusi and the fifth annual Week of Italian Cuisine in the World

Across the globe, we celebrated the fifth annual Settimana della Cucina Italiana nel Mondo, or the Week of Italian Cuisine in the World. This campaign, organized by the Italian Foreign Ministry, focuses on promoting authentic Italian cuisine in every kitchen - something we can all be thankful for - while featuring the iconic recipes of Pelligrino Artusi on his 200th anniversary. His cookbook, "Science in the Kitchen and the Art of Eating Well” (1891), is an Italian staple and one of the first mainstream collections of regional recipes that paved the way for Italian cuisine as we know it today.

 

The Italy-America Chamber of Commerce of Texas celebrated this momentous event with a virtual Masterclass and tasting dinner where guests discussed the importance of authentic, quality ingredients before diving into a three-course meal (pictured below) prepared by Chef Giancarlo Ferrara of Amalfi Houston . 

You too can enjoy Pellegrino Artusi's iconic dishes by following along with Chef Claudio Sadler's video below, where he walks through the creation of a delicious Grana Padano based appetizer.

You can also click here to find a collection of Artusi's Recipe videos on the IACC Texas Youtube channel.

This event was made possible with the support of the Italian Foreign Ministry’s “Authentic Italian Table” and “True Italian Taste” campaigns. Please follow both on social media using the hashtags: #iffoodcouldtalk #trueitaliantaste #extraordinaryitaliantaste.
