Opening night: the press was gracefully invited one hour before the official opening.
I met with the Chefs, cruised around, sipped some excellent sparkling wines like the Brut Pittaro, tried a Ricola herb teas, bamboo cheese made outside Milan, zabaione Pasqualina gelato, and of course tasted some of the chefs dishes (tapas size oriented) cooked on the premises and offered at prices that spam from 5 Euro for an entrée to 10 for a main dish.
Here the schedule for Sat 21, Sund 22
Acanto Hotel Principe di Savoia Chef Alessandro Buffolino, Bulgari Hotel Milano Chef Roberto Di Pinto, Convivio Troiani, Chef Angelo Troiani Liberty Chef Andrea Provenzani, Ristorante Trussardi alla Scala Chef Roberto Conti, Lume Chef uigi Taglienti, Berton Chef Andrea Berton, Rubacuori by Venissa Chef Andrea Asoli, Wicky’s Chef Wicky Priyan
I loved the La Locanda del Notaio by Edoardo Fumagalli, Christian&Manuel Costardi with an unusual combination of squid, potato and kafa coffee powder. I adored the quite mediterranean Felice Lo Russo’black crèpe with haddock. Just superb…
I wasn’t sure about Tano Simonato’s, saffron gnocchetti that, to my opinion, were a little bit undercooked and kinda hard to bite. Unfortunately all menus are in italian and the lines to get your dish are sooo ‘italianstyle’ pretty messy. Prices are reduced as the quantity on your paper plate, so be ready to spend around € 40 to taste few specialties and some wine, plus the entrance fee.
Taste of Milano will be held till Sunday May 22.
I am planning to go back and tell you more about it. Ciao!
