The event was held by Andrea Larcan, Luca Amadei ,Valerio Cifola, Tommaso Fraccaroli Francesco Bufalari  and Andrea Coppola as coordinators of the IE Italy Club.This event was attended by 50 IE student coming from all around the world.

The menu proposed to our guest was a real Italian taste experience, through diverse dishes rigorously prepared following the regional Italian recipes. The event started with the unavoidable “aperitivo italiano” which included typical food from the region of Lazio and Puglia such as Porchetta(roasted pork) and Provola  cheese  while as a starter Carpaccio with CastelMagno cheese typically  from the region of Piemonte. The aperitivo was served with Prosecco from Valdobiadene, typical sparkling white wine from the region of Veneto.

The first dish served, Gnocchi 5 cheese gnocchi with truffle and “Fiocchi del contadino“ (handmade stuffed pasta with cheese, pear&honey) was a selection of pasta typically from the region of Lombardia.

The second course served was the most famous Italian dish around the world, “la Pizza” that was personalized by the chef Vincenzo Marino by using different combinations of toppings. The dinner terminated with “I cannoli siciliani”, handmade Sicilian dessert with ricotta cheese.

The guests really appreciated the dishes and the convivial atmosphere that contributed to create an incredible opportunity for networking and promoting Italian culture. In fact conviviality for the IE Italy Club is the key factor to foster exchange of ideas, personal points of view with friends and -why not- know each other tasting good food and wine.
