Last week I had the opportunity to be part of ” The Authentic Italian table” in Vancouver at the Terminal City Hotel. The Authentic Italian Table is food festival designed to educate food lovers all around the word about Authentic Italian Food and Products including DOP, DOC, IGP! The program, which is supported by the Ministery of the Economy Development, will also stop to 8 other city like Miami, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston,New York and Mexico City. Thank you to the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Canada West, Assocamerato and True Italian Taste to put such a great effort on this amazing project! We all need to educate more people about Real Authentic Italian Poducts, unfortunately there is a lot of scam out there.
The night was amazing with lots of vendors that brought their Authentic Italian Product to show and taste! From Prosciutto di Norcia, Orecchiette with Anchovy Rucola Pomodorini and Burrata, Bresaola DOP, Casera DOP, Piave DOP, Prosciutto di Parma DOP, Tagliatelle with creamy Muschroom, Risotto with DOP Gorgonzola, Taralli, Panna Cotta, Espresso, Campari, Prosecco, Real Good Extra Virgin Olive oil, and lots of vino! I can’t even tell you what was my favorite food because each products was outstanding and Authentic, It was like going back to Italy for me. Thank you to all the vendors that always do an outstanding job promoting Authentic Italian Products, Vancouver unfortunately has a lot of fake Italian products! Sad but together we can make the difference!
