Dear CICC Members and Friends,
The China-Italy Chamber of Commerce is glad to inform you that the Italian Gala Dinner in Beijing will be held on Saturday November 25 at Kerry Hotel Beijing.
The 2nd Week of the Italian Cuisine in China
From November 20th to November 26th Italy celebrates its Second Week of the Italian Cuisine Abroad in the World (Seconda Settimana della Cucina Italiana all’Estero nel Mondo). The Week of the Italian Cuisine in China is part of a global project supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (Ministero degli Affari Esteri e della Cooperazione Internazionale), the Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (Ministero dell’Istruzione, dell’Università e della Ricerca), the Ministery of Economic Development (Ministero dello sviluppo economico) and the Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies (Ministero delle Politiche Agricole, Alimentari e Forestali), aiming at spreading the values of the Mediterranean Cuisine (UNESCO intangible heritage) and boosting awareness about Italian F&B products.
The second edition will aim at improving the Italian F&B export to China, with a focus on specific areas and products. It will also be characterised by a wider use of the social media to promote this initiative.
For the occasion, to create the signature menu of the Gala Dinner the CICC invited the Michelin-Starred Chef, Massimo Spigaroli. Often called “THE FARMING CHEF” since his cuisine is carried out only “using the natural methods”, Spigaroli has many times been an international ambassador for the Italian cuisine.
"A taste of Preciousness"
The Italian Gala Dinner 2017 edition confers a leading role to food, seen as the essence of excellence. From raw materials to dinner plates, passing through long and elaborate processes of creation, food can be a synonym of refinement, sophistication, and invaluable good.
Let us lead you in this path to rediscover the essence of food, from regional varieties and diversities to the elevation of food as arouser of deep emotions.
Moreover, the 2017 edition will host a live performance by the Italian singer Silvia Cortella, stage name Emma Re, a well-known and much appreciated artist both at national and international level, who has had great success particularly among Chinese media.
