On October 6th, the Italy-America Chamber of Commerce Southeast presented a new culinary masterclass on Italian certified food products, and especially on one of the protagonists of Italian tables during the fall season: the black truffle.
This masterclass was part of the ‘Extraordinary Italian Taste’ campaign, endorsed by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Assocamerestero, with the aim of promoting authentic Italian products in the US market
A selected group of journalists, bloggers, F&B importers and hospitality leaders attended the event at Dōma Restaurant in Miami.
Chef Marco Giuliano talked about his cuisine style using PDO (Protected Denomination of Origin) and PGI (Protected Geographical Indication). Attendees had the opportunity to learn more about the history, the culture and the nutritional aspects of a few signature Italian products very popular during the fall season.
After the masterclass our guests from the food & beverage industry and the local press had the opportunity to taste a four-course menu prepared by Chef Giuliano, including fresh truffles courtesy of Angellozzi Truffles and a guided wine pairing courtesy of Ruffino.
Finally, thanks to the collaboration with Dōma, Ruffino and Angellozzi Truffles, this four-course gourmet experience could be open also to a small group of local food lovers.
