Week of Italian Cuisine in the World

Week of Italian Cuisine in the World: from 20th to 26th November 2017, various dates and locations (Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch)

The Week of Italian Cuisine in the World, an event coordinated by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, with the purpose of promoting Italy’s most renowned exports: the extraordinary Italian taste” and the pleasure of eating together the Italian way, reaches its second edition. Last year this initiative took place in over 100 countries across the world. This year, New Zealand is in the list of participating countries, with a wide array of events showcasing authentic Italian traditions, high-quality products and regional specificities.

There will be 32 events across New Zealand, coordinated by the Italian Embassy, in Auckland (Giapo, JK14 wines & The Corner, Non Solo Pizza, Palazzo Italia, Pasta & Cuore, Segafredo, Settebello, Dante Alighieri Society), Wellington (La Bella Italia, Bel Mondo, Mediterranean Foods, Cicio Cacio, Franziska, Bastardo, Pizza Pomodoro) and Christchurch (Dante Alighieri Society, La Dolce Vita, Casamassima): workshops, meetings with the chefs, food-and-wine tasting and dinners, cooking classes. The Italian cuisine will also be narrated through cultural events, such as the screening of food related films and documentaries.

Two initiatives, strongly supported by this year’s Week of Italian Cuisine and incorporated in some of the events, are particularly meaningful: the candidacy of the Art of Neapolitan pizzaiuoli as UNESCO Intangible Heritage, and that of Le colline del Prosecco in Valdobbiadene’s site as UNESCO World Heritage "cultural landscape".

The Embassy is hosting two events in Wellington: a mozzarella workshop with Massimiliano De Caro (Il Casaro), and a cooking class "Italy by Ingredient: Parmigiano" with Viola Buitoni, a San Francisco based native Italian leading food expert.

We invite you to make the most of what this week has to offer, immerse yourself into Italian culinary culture and, of course, buon appetito! #italiantaste

Flyers with all events is attached.

Howard Davis: And The Oscar Goes To … Parasite

For its deliciously dark wit and genre-bending ingenuity, Bong Joon-ho's latest movie has just won four out of a potential six Academy Awards, including Best Screenplay and Director. Only ten foreign-language films have previously been nominated for Best Picture and none have won before. More>>


Howard Davis: 1917's 1,000 Yard Stare

Sam Mendes has created a terrible and barbarous trek, one that we appreciate all the more for being catapulted right into the midst of this ear-splitting melee from the film's opening sequence. More>>
