A Special New York Edition of Le Strade della Mozzarella
On the 17 and the 18 of May, people of the food and wine industry in New York attended an Edition of Le Strade della Mozzarella, a two day conference of tastings and presentations dedicated to high quality Italian products.
LSDM loosely translates to ‘The many roads of Mozzarella’ is the congress of a number of talented and prestigious chefs from around Europe that has taken place for the past nine years in the region of Campania, in Southern Italy. In addition to our main event, for the past two years we have organized pop-ups in other European capitals around the deepening of gastronomic knowledge in relation to Italian products. This year, for the first time, we are crossing the sea to the Big Apple to tell the stories of some of our best artisans of taste: chefs, pizzaioli, and producers of gastronomic excellence.
On May 17, chefs have been the protagonists of the events realized in collaboration with the Association of the Italian Chefs in New York: “A taste of Italy”. There were presentations by Massimo Carbone, Massimo Bebber, Pasquale Cozzolino, Gaetano Torrente, and Alfonso Pepe in the Agnelli showroom on 5 Ave in the heart of the Flatiron district. During the day, there were also events dedicated to bufala mozzarella, the pasta of Gragnano, Neapolitan coffee and Extravirgin olive oil.
The second day was entirely dedicated to pizza and a series of presentations by master pizzaioli centered around Margherita pizza. Master pizzaioli from New York Giulio Adriani, Michele D’Amelio and Giorgia Caporuscio offered a selection of their pizzas next to John Arena from Las Vegas and Salvatore Salvo and Franco Pepe from Campania.For more information: www.lsdm.it
