Food & Progress 2018, Florence, Tuscany

Tuscan food is  a kind of cucina povera or “poor cooking.” A concept that started very literally, it’s about simple meals that are inexpensive and could easily be made in large amounts.

Today it remains largely the same – but by choice instead of economy. Tuscan cooking doesn’t use complicated seasonings or elaborate creations because they’re not needed. Instead it’s made using fresh, high-quality ingredients that bring out the natural flavors in each dish, simple or not. When you arrive in Tuscany you will be faced with one doubt . What are the foods I can’t miss, what will I regret not having eaten? If you came and visit   “Food & Wine in Progress 2018 ” , you will have an idea! “Food & Wine in Progress 2018 ” is about Culinary Specialities in Florence and  showcases Tuscan Excellence. 

The program begins with Conferences, Master Classes, each focusing on a specific thematic about Wine & Food. Food & Wine in Progress 2018 ”  has a lot to offer to the guests, from locally sourced products to Wine Tastings with AIS (Italian  Sommelier  Association)

My favourite Master Class is the one about Riesling . I’m learning a lot about Germany Wine  Production  in  Pfalz thanks to a special Wine Tasting organized by the “ Bassermann-Jordan Winery “.

“ Bassermann-JordanWinery “ is  an established leader and an example of the efficiency of Riesling Production in GermanyThe history of the “ Bassermann-JordanWinery “ is the history of a family dynasty that has helped to establish quality viticulture for almost 300 years. Generation after generation, important personalities emerge from it who know how to preserve and develop the importance of the estate and top Palatinate Wines with intelligence, expertise and intuition as well as economic and political influence – up to the top rank of the world. Their wine labels are landmarks and stand for Wines from the best locations and pioneering work in cultivation and vinification with a passion for quality. These Wines are fruity ,  elegant and fit any specific need. These are Characteristic Wines of Origin which are cultivated and matured ecologically according to anthroposophical teachings. For most of their  Wines Art Nouveau label is used.

There are also  interesting Cooking Shows (including fresh pasta and vegan recipes)  at “Food & Wine in Progress 2018 ” and  hundreds of fans who come to join this magic Wine & Food Exibition.

Enjoy it !
