The region of Calabria will be featured January 19-21, 2020 at this year’s Winter Fancy Food Show (at the Moscone Center in San Francisco).
At the show, the largest food exhibition in the U.S., food experts from Calabria will be leading demos and tastings, giving attendees to experience authentic Calabrian food products and learn more about traditional Calabrian foodways.
And it’s just the first event in a series that will be held throughout the U.S. in 2020. Future tastings, seminars, and food demos will be organized by the Italy-America Chamber of Commerce West and the Italy-America Chamber of Commerce Texas (stay tuned for details on upcoming events).
“Italian food is undeniably popular in the United States,” says Gina Aquino a member of the Calabria delegation at the show. “American Foodies will love taking a deep dive into the hidden culinary gems of Calabria, Italy’s southernmost Region. This will help continue expanding consumers palates, thus creating market opportunities for some of our region’s most innovative products.”
The campaign is part of an Italian government-sponsored project, The American Frontier: Opportunities in Texas, Louisiana, and California, the Golden State (La frontiera americana – opportunità in Texas, Louisiana e nel Golden State, la California).
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to experience the flavors of Calabria and interact with leading experts on Calabrian food products and foodways.
You’ll find Calabrian foods available for tasting in the TASTE IT LIVE area of the exhibition.
See the Winter Fancy Food Show site for details and registration info.
Calabrian food products will also be featured at Taste of Italy & Savor Italy in Houston, New Orleans, and Los Angeles March 29 – April 2, 2020.
