Italian Cuisine in the World (20-26 November 2017)

After last year’s great success, the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, together with numerous other parties, has organised the Second Week of the Italian Cuisine in the World. The initiative has been met with great interest and the program for the week includes many different events across more than 110 countries. The aim of the Week of the Italian Cuisine in the World is to celebrate Italian culinary traditions as an important part of Italian identity and culture.

Italian cuisine has its origins not only in popular culture, where humble dishes were born, but also in the very sophisticated culinary traditions which reached their peak in the Renaissance courts. Italian cuisine comes from that same mix of history, cultural exchanges, creativity, spirit of initiative and passion for what is good and what is beautiful which are at the foundation of all of the most elevated manifestations of Italian culture. The Week of the Italian Cuisine in the World is also an occasion to promote the Mediterranean Diet, a lifestyle that makes Italy one of the healthiest countries in the world.

Numerous activities will take place in Ireland, thanks to the many partners in the Italian food industry in this country under the coordination of the Embassy of Italy, the Italian Institute of Culture, the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Dublin and ENIT. The program is extremely rich and interesting, covering many gastronomic and cultural elements.  A vast public is expected to take this opportunity to learn more about Italian cuisine, by attending the scheduled events and combining the pleasure of the palate with cultural enrichment.

The First Week of Italian Cuisine in the World is organised in partnership with: Dunne & Crescenzi, Flavour of Italy Group,  Little Italy, Il Valentino, Da Vincenzo, Panem, Organach, Piglet wine bar, Febvre, Banfi, Wallace Italian wine bars, 100 percent Italy.
