The Italian Cuisine Week is an annual series of events which take place from 20 to 26 November 2017 in hundreds of countries around the World.
It is a legacy of Expo Milano 2015, inspired by the issues addressed by the Milan Charter: quality, sustainability, culture, food security, the right to food, education, identity, territory and biodiversity.
Coordinated by Italy’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the initiative aims to support Italian cuisine abroad, informing and educating people about the broad range of Italian culinary traditions and local identities.
During the week, participants will have the chance to attend various events such as educational conferences, panels, workshops, product exhibitions, themed tastings and masterclasses held by sought-after Italian chefs.
