18.02.2015 MILANO FOOD & WINE Festival – the Festival of Italian wines and Italian cuisine products



Today I am going to tell you about the annual festival Milano Food & Wine – the festival of Italian wines and Italian cuisine products that went over big in Milan for the fourth time and I visited it with great pleasure this year.

For me the festival turned out to be a real travel to the fascinating world of the best Italian products and wines.

During three days the most famous 19 chefs of Italy were staggering the audience with cooking unbelievably creative and incredibly delicious dishes

going well with the great wines that were scrupulously selected for the festival by Helmut Kocher, founder and president of the other prestigious wine show: Merano Wine Festival in the region of Alto Adige. The most famous 300 wines from all wine regions of Italy were represented at the Milan festival: Barolo, Nebbiolo, Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino

 – and the list goes on and on. No doubt all wines were of premium quality and without delay I personally became convinced of that fact (thankfully the free wine testing is an integral part of the festival programwink).

But wine is not the only thing Italy is famous for – the best products ‘Made in Italy’ were represented in the same place, at the parallel show of art of cookery Identità Golose.

The famous Italian truffles.

In general there is a real food cult in Italy and the festivals like this become not only cult events, but also social occasions where you can meet any celebrity. For example the Milan festival was visited by the famous judges of the cooking show Master Chef Italia – the most popular program on the Italian TV at the moment.

Joe Bastianich, American restaurateur, who is a judge on the American version of the reality show MasterChef having gained the reputation of being the strictest judge on both sides of the Atlantic ocean.

No doubt I look slightly dazed on the photo, but you don’t get photographed with the celebrity every day!

By the way Mr. Bastianich is also a successful winemaker producing his own wines under Bastianich trademark, exactly in Italy.

Perfect wines, I must tell you, I strongly recommend testing them as chance offers!

And the most interesting thing at the festival was a lecture on the correct wine testing and determination of race of wine.

The lecture gave me a lot of interesting and useful information to be shared with you in my next post.

I wish everybody happiness!
