On the weekend of 16th and 17th of November, FICO Eataly World celebrates its second birthday with meetings and tastings, to which I will take my contribution by participating in a round table. It starts with a simple and interesting question: why has chocolate been called “the food of the gods”? “Because it makes the greedy dream but can be tasted without guilt – you can read on the Fico website – because the health benefits are demonstrated by numerous studies. The “fondant couple of Italian food writing”, Clara and Gigi Padovani, authors of numerous texts, defined as “the chocolate Bible” and translated into different languages, will guide us in this wonderful world through its declinations in the weekend in which FICO celebrates its second birthday”.
The meeting in which I will participate is entitled “The female side of chocolate” and will be held at the central Arena of FICO Eataly World on Saturday 16th November at 4pm. As the name implies, the event will be dedicated to the “chocolate women”: a “pink” talk show with the chocolate ladies, maître chocolatier and entrepreneurs. With me there will be Valentina Arzilli from La Perla (To), Miriam Gardini from Gardini (Forlì) and Anna Majani from Majani (Bologna). Coordinates Clara Vada Padovani. Introduced by Tiziana Primori, CEO of FICO Eataly World.
