The Embassy of Italy in Wellington is coordinating a series of events to celebrate the second edition of the “Week of Italian Cuisine in the World”, from 20th to 26th November 2017, with the purpose of promoting Italy’s most renowned exports: “the extraordinary Italian taste” and the pleasure of eating together the Italian way.

There will be 32 events across New Zealand, in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch: 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!
