Back to the Future: Return of the Alumni

Pollenzo-Albergo dell'Agenzia

Three former students at the University of Gastronomic Sciences who’ve decided to put their studies into action in osterias—all featured in the Slow Food guide Osterie d’Italia—reinventing their kitchens with fresh ideas, exceptional raw ingredients and technical skills behind the stove.

This unmissable dinner is your chance to sample cuisine from three different Italian regions: the Ostreria of the Pavesi brothers in Podenzano, Emilia-Romagna, Cascina Lago Scuro run by Luca Grazielli and his family in Stagno Lombardo, Lombardy, and Andrea Riboni’s Locanda Solagna in Quero Vas, Veneto.

We start with an aperitivo of traditional products from each region—cheeses, charcuterie, sauces, giardiniera (pickled relish)—then continue with the most representative dishes of these young businesses:

  • the “rice bomb” – Ostreria;
  • Capéi del Prete pasta with mushrooms and Blu61 cheese, cooked grape must and grilled duck – Locanda Solagna;
  • Grilled beef, prepared with meat from animals raised in-house, vegetable terrine – Cascina Lago Scuro.

We finish with three traditional desserts.

The food will be paired with the prestigious wines of Cantine Bertani in Valpolicella, with particular focus on Amarone.

Pollenzo, six kilometers from Bra, is the other main hub of Cheese 2019. A special shuttle service will take you from Bra to Pollenzo and back, so you can create your own program and move around easily without using a car.

The event can be booked online until 12 p.m. on September 19. During the days of Cheese you can buy any remaining tickets for this and other events at the Event Reception.
