The 4th Edition of the International Day of Italian Cuisines is around the corner. Already a tradition the event will take place next January 17th and it will be a worldwide celebration of authentic and quality Italian Cuisine.
This year´s official dish is PESTO ALLA GENOVESE, this delicious landmark of Italian Cuisines was originated in Genova, Region of Liguria and is one of the most reproduced, for better or for worse, dishes of our cooking tradition.
The winners of the two pesto competitions organized in occasion of OliOliva, the great fair of Imperia dedicated to extra-virgin oil of olive, come from Piedmont, the region north of Liguria, but they are of Ligurian origins!
Federico Ferro, the pesto world champion, realized a pesto demo the last Sunday of November in Sestri Levante in occasion of “Pane e Olio” fair. Despite the cold and windy afternoon, an attentive public took part of the event!
In the November number - Palatifini explained the Minestrone and soups, ideal for the winter. Genoa makes a dense minestrone from greens and seasonal vegetables, but adds a traditional loving spoonful of pesto. La Spezia mixes bean and cereals to make “Mixture Soup”.
Nel numero “blue” di ottobre, Palatifini parla di uno dei protagonisti incontrastati della cucina ligure: lo stoccafisso. Amichevolmente soprannominato anche “stokke”, rappresenta uno degli ingredienti principali di numerosi piatti della tradizione locale.
Nel numero "blue" di settembre, Palatifini illustra la produzione dei biscotti secchi, eccellenza dell'entroterra e arte raffinata che si tramanda di generazione in generazione. L'ideale per una merenda perfetta!
