Cacio e pepe festival at Eataly

There are a number of dishes that Romans consider sacred. The cacio e pepe is one of them. Think hand-rolled tonnarelli pasta mixed with grated pecorino cheese, freshly cracked black pepper and whisked with pasta water to create the perfect creamy sauce–it’s perfection. And Eataly has decided to celebrate it like it’s supposed to, with a three-day festival from January 17th to 19th! Some of the city’s historic restaurants and osterias will be present on the third floor of Eataly’s multi-level gastronomic center, where you’ll be able to taste numerous cacio e pepe versions and go with your favorite one!

Osterias present:

Felice a Testaccio – Pastificio Secondi – Osteria Fratelli Mori – Osteria Verbano – Osteria Circo – Brado – Manforte – Forno Monteforte

Cooking challenge with Bloggers:

On Friday the 17th at 7pm a cooking contest called “E tu che Cacio e Pepe sei?” will take place among bloggers four bloggers: Elisa Ceccuzzi of Kitty’s Kitchen, Laura Conforti of LadFoodie,  Fedora D’Orazio of Cappuccino e Cornetto, and Ada Parisi of Siciliani Creativi in Cucina. The four paticipants will compete against each other to present their best cacio e pepe version, with Pastificio Secondi, Felice a Testaccio e Brado being the judges!

Live music by Na’ Cosetta :

At the Cacio e Pepe Festival, a rich musical program is in store! Eataly has made a partnership with Na’ Cosetta, the famous bistrot based in Pigneto that combines the culture of food with that of live music by continuously exploring new combinations of sociability, live shows, food and wine!

Chef Giacinta Trivero from Tiramibloom will teach you how to make the perfect tiramisù using sophisticated pastry-making techniques. You’ll start with the preparation of a classic tiramisù followed by a special “blooms” tiramisù recipe, hand-picked by the chef for the occasion. Each participant will create three mini classic tiramisùs and three mini special tiramisùs to take home in an elegant tasting “Tiramibloom” box! The aim of the masterclass is to introduce participants to pastry-making techniques that can be adopted at home to allow participants to get more creative! You’ll be given all the equipment and necessary ingredients, just bring an apron!
