The ‘World Week of Italian Cuisine’ or ‘Settimana Della Cucina’ campaign is organised by The Extraordinary Italian Taste. This year, companies and individuals across the world will take part to celebrate Italian food and culture from the 19th to 25th November.
The aim of the week long campaign is to reinforce the importance of quality ingredients by educating food lovers on how to identify and appreciate authentic Italian products and dishes.
The events at Eusebi have been created in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute, The Extraordinary Italian Taste and the Italian Chamber of Commerce. The restaurant will welcome two Italian culinary experts to share their passion and knowledge with diners in Glasgow.
The first event will be a complimentary talk and tasting of wines and oils from the Castel Del Monte area of Italy and will run from 5:30pm to 6:30pm. Antonio Caputo, a highly regarded expert in agriculture from the region will guide guests through the presentation to explain how these products are grown, harvested and processed. The complimentary talk must be reserved to guarantee your space.
The second event of the evening will see Michelin star chef, Felice Sgarra from http://www.umamiristorante.com will create a one-off tasting menu inspired by the Andriese region of Italy. The dishes will be made using the freshest Italian ingredients to highlight the flavours and culinary heritage of the area. Tickets for the dinner must be purchased in advance and are priced at £70 per person. The menu is perfectly paired with wine to complement each course. The exclusive evening will start at 8pm.
Giovanna Eusebi, owner of Eusebi Deli, said: “I come from a long line of strong Italian women who were proud to show me the great flavours of Italian cuisine. At Eusebi, we are still on the same journey to share the food that we are so passionate about.
“Our team are committed to showcasing ‘eccellenze italiane’ (Italian excellence) and we strive to show our customers what real, authentic Italian food is. The ‘World Week of Italian Cuisine’ is a celebration of everything Italy has to offer and we’re excited to welcome a Michelin star chef, Felice Sgarra to mark the occasion!”
