Since 1975, the locals of Borgo Val di Taro, an Italian town in the province of Parma; celebrate the Mushroom season in September.
An unmissable opportunity for all lovers of this local and rare delicacy, has become also a chance to enjoy a wide array of events- including cooking classes, wine and activities for all ages.
But of course, the locals of Borgo Val di Taro aren’t the only lovers of Porcini. Similar events are also held in the town of Albareto and various different regions in Italy, not to mention the famous truffle fair of Alba!
Taking inspiration from these gastronomic Italian feasts, we will be honouring the tradition with our very own ‘Porcini Feast’ using seasonal Mushrooms at the famous Italian cookery school, La Cucina Caldesi on Saturday 29th September.
Using only the finest ingredients, you’ll experience a hands on cooking experience with Filippo Berio and head chef Stefano Borella, where you will learn & discover Italy’s tastiest recipes.
Once the food is ready and prepared, guests will then sit down to enjoy the fruits of their labour- a sumptuous four course meal, made with the finest olive oils and paired with specially selected wines from Zonin 1821.
Tickets are exceptional value at £75pp, which includes a 2-3 hour cookery lesson, a four course meal and wine.
Of course, every guest will also receive a Filippo Berio goody bag worth over £30 plus those all important recipes to recreate the dishes back home.
Join us for an unforgettable evening, with delicious food, fine wine & great company.
