On the 18th October 2019 the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry for the UK (ICCIUK) organised a masterclass with the celebrity Chef Giancarlo Caldesi and the wine expert Tom Harrow. The event was framed within the project True Italian Taste, sponsored and promoted by the Italian Ministry for Economic Development and Assocamerestero.


The masterclass was organised during Welcome Italia, the Chamber’s annual B2B and B2C event dedicated to the best of Italian Food & Beverage.


The masterclass presented to UK F&B professionals, journalists and influencers a selection of Italian products selected according to high qualitative standards in order to promote the quality of the authentic Italian cuisine.


Chef Caldesi prepared three typical Italian disheszucchini flan and almond flour with cream cheese, tarragon and chili pepper; beef tartare with black truffle; shrimp and lemon risotto with shellfish bisque.

The dishes were skilfully paired by Tom Harrow with four wines offered by the Consorzio per la Tutela del Franciacorta: Ricci Curbastro Brut Franciacorta, Corte Aura Saten, Santus Dosaggio Zero and Ca’ del Bosco Vintage Saten.


During the masterclass, the audience had the opportunity to ask questions about the products and how to use them in order to enhance their flavours according to the Italian tradition. After each dish was prepared, the attendees tasted the food prepared by Giancarlo Caldesi and the Franciacorta wines.
