Seven Michelin stars will light up the Vitrum Gourmet Festival — 4 chefs whose talent has been rewarded multiple times with the most prestigious and coveted international awards, will be the stars in an appetizing event for visitors at Vitrum 2011
Vitrum 2011 will host an authentic Festival of Gourmet Italian Cuisine, quintessential symbol of Made in Italy, bringing an extraordinary culinary event into a trade show for the very first time.
“The art of glass processing is firmly grounded in the past and Italy has long been its cradle. The same is true for fine cuisine, a fundamental part of our culture and the essence of ‘Italianness’ around the world”, explains Renata Gaffo, Director of Vitrum. “By hosting this event, Vitrum once again demonstrates its ability to combine the most technological aspects of Made in Italy with its most artistic and palate-pleasing – which is exactly why we organized the Vitrum Gourmet Festival”. In fact, the Vitrum Gourmet Festival will feature four prominent Italian chefs who are masters of their art and famous around the world for being among the best. Each day, for the entire duration of the fair, one of the featured chefs will show off his skills, preparing a distinctive specialty menu from his personal repertory, all in the name of Italian gastronomy with a pinch of originality and creativity.
Visitors to Vitrum will be able to experience a unique taste of Italy in a refined and relaxed atmosphere at an elegant restaurant created inside pavilion 22 of the Fiera Milano Rho complex, headquarters of the Vitrum Gourmet Festival.
Once again, Vitrum confirms its commitment to bringing together the best of Made in Italy – to the delight of visitors and participants from around the world.
