Stand bij Outdoor Eating in Almere

Yes, what happened in the meantime? We have been so busy the past months we did not manage to update you. Let me do it shortly here: In december, after the event, Barbara flew to Italy to present her new book, La risposta del cavolo,  in Roma, at the small publishers’ event  Più libri, più liberi.

In March, our proven team of Hans & Sandra with Il Palazzo, Barbara as Summa Sommelier and Dario & Monique of ristorante Schatull organized a stand at the Italian Wines Trade Fair in Amsterdam to present their best wines.

In April we went at Vinitaly, the largest Italian wine fair in Verona. Barbara, Dario & Federico met their friends of  AIS, the Italian sommeliers’ society.

In the meantime we kept looking for a larger and more central place to hold our next winter event Da Gustare 21013. Thanks to Marina of Nerodavola, our new and fantastic partner and old friend, and to chef Andrea Sossi, we met Mediamatic. We fell immediately in love with the location, the neighbourhood, their activities and more than anything, with their hydroponic gardens.

We also made a belated celebration of the first year of activity of Il Palazzo.Oh, I almost forgot, we also took part in the two largest summer events in the Netherlands: Outdoor Eating in  Almere and the Italian event at the De Haar caslte with our friends of Authentic Abruzzo.

The coming months we will work even harder to make a new, fantastic event Da Gustare on 9 November. And, of course, on 11 and 12 November, with our partners at the trade fair Gastronomie in Utrecht. But it might be clear that we love working hards with excellent Italian food and wine.

And, in the meantime, if you miss us you can always meet us at pur cooking lessons and guided tastings in Amsterdam and in Abruzzo (mid-July).

For all the rest stay tuned. We are not done yet.
