The four-day food extravaganza is back
Foodies rejoice! Rome’s largest restaurant festival, the four-day food extravaganza, Taste of Roma, returns for its eighth edition, promising to bring together some of the most exciting and experimental chefs in the city, as well as tastings, cooking demonstrations and exclusive cooking experiences.
Kicking off September 19th, the major event dedicated to exploring culinary talents, new tastes and flavours, Taste of Roma 2019 is set to be bigger and better than ever before!
Held at the Auditorium Parco della Musica, Taste of Roma will host 14 great Chefs, each with a four-course menu. Color and its combination to food will be the theme of this year’s editions. The festival is a real chance for the usually exclusive work of some of Italy’s most prestigious chefs to be opened up and shared with the public. The 14 Chefs protagonists of this year’s edition are: Francesco Apreda from Idylio by Apreda, Heinz Beck from La Pergola, Cristina Bowerman from Glass Hostaria, Fabio Ciervo from La Terrazza Hotel Eden, Davide Del Duca from Osteria Fernanda, Riccardo Digiacinto from All’Oro, Yamamoto Eiji from Sushisen, Daniele Lippi from Acquolina, Stefano Marzetti from Mirabelle Hotel Splendide Royal, Ciro Scamardella from Pipero Roma, Domenico Stile from Enoteca La Torre, Giulio Terrinoni from Per Me, Angelo Troiani from Troiani, and Andrea Viola from Il San Giorgio a Roma.
In addition to dining and tasting a wide variety of exceptional plates, you can also step into the kitchen and sign up for mini-lessons with renowned chefs, as well as attending show-cooking and beer and wine tastings.
Numerous activities are in store including La Scuola di Cucina (in partnership with A Tavola con lo Chef) that will allow you to cook with great chefs; the BBQ Experience (in partnership with Weber, Heinz, Munchies and A Tavola Con lo Chef) which will allow you to improve your barbecuing skills and become the perfect Grill Master; Il Salotto del Vino (in partnership with Trimani and Pasabahce) which will allow you to hop on a tasting bus – a space entirely dedicated to those who want to learn more about the secrets of the vineyards; and Kids@Taste (in partnership with Solaya Communication) with its laboratories and activities completely dedicated to kids.
One of the highlights of this year will be Residence by Zacapa, the restaurant inside Taste of Rome which will see a different Roman Chef as the protagonist every day, creating an exclusive menu to pair with the Rum Zacapa.
And this year, for the first time ever, a company like Italo becomes partner of the event – the first Italian private operator on the high-speed rail network “will accompany” all its travelers to Taste of Rome with a special discount reserved for the purchase of tickets at a great price!
With entry costing just €16, the chance to mingle with Michelin star chefs and an evening of fine dining has never been more of a bargain! The event promises to feature Rome’s finest chefs, artisans and producers, all under one happy roof.
