Vinoforum: Event for food and wine

1.6 – 6.6.2012 Vinoforum

Where: Flaminio (Metro A) Lungotevere Maresciallo Diaz

Price: Sunday – Thursday 16€ Open from 19.00-24.00 VINOFORUM-137

This is an event that promotes food and wine culture - including business, education and entertainment. Vinòforum 2012 is held, as usual, Tiber Marshal Diaz, in an exhibition space of 10,000 sqm en plein air, where they will present over 2500 labels in tasting the best Italian and international wine producers, culinary excellence, chefs and wineries. This ninth edition, after the success of every year - in 2011 there were over 43 000 visitors - puts even more emphasis on its protagonist: the wine.

In the exhibition the event will be hosted even a whole line of furniture and objects related to the consumption of wine - from corkscrews to bottle, to a range of essential accessories to fully enjoy the precious night. L initiative is a collaboration between Vinòforum and vanishing point, a group of young designers who work with wood and handcrafted according to tradition.

The Capitoline Councillor for Productive Activities, Davide Bordoni said: Rome is proud to host the 2012 edition of Vinòforum, an event that confirms its ability to promote the culture and food and wine lovers and professionals involved in events level. This year I particularly appreciate the choice of the organizers to honor the Capital giving ample room for a Roman restaurant project from chef Cellars. Some of the best chefs will cook and great hostelries live and present their dishes paired with wines from the most important wineries. I think it’s a good idea to highlight two areas that give a lot to our city and our country: the catering, which in Rome is an important part of economic activities and the Capitoline wine that continues to garner awards and giving us so many important satisfactions .

Gelato Wanted!

 Summer is almost at the door and the days are getting warmer and warmer each day.

When you’re walking in the streets of Rome all day, you will feel like you need a break and something to cool you down.

In a hot day or evening, the best choice for cool down is an ice cream bar! (Gelateria)

Gelato is typically flavored with fresh fruit purees, cocoa and/or nut pastes. If other ingredients such as chocolate flakes, nuts, small confections, cookies, or biscuits are added, they are added after the gelato is frozen. Gelato made with fresh fruit, sugar, and water and without dairy ingredients is sorbet.

Here is a couple of very good ice cream bars in the centre of the Rome.You should try at least another one of these! giolitti

Giolitti: I recommend this is strictly! In my opinion you get the best ice cream from there. There are many different flavours and choices in wich way you want your ice cream. Good location, friendly staff and so sweet flavours!   You might have to wait in the queue for a while, because it’s the most famous ice cream bar in Rome, but it’s worth it!
