»» The Luxury of Simplicity – Latest Food Trends at “Identità Golose” in Milan

Identità Golose” is a three-day food event held in Milan from Jan 31 through Feb 2, 2010. It is a premier event for those who would like to know more about the latest food trends.

“The Luxury of Simplicity” is the theme for 2010 edition of Identità Golose.

It is focusing on how to promote creativity and healthy eating based on the most basic produce.
It goes beyond the recipe itself and pays attention to production and environmental health.

How should we spend our money?”, therefore the joy of a meal comes from a high quality and soulful vegetable, from a bread that will still be good three days later, from an “alive” meat, still bleeding and generating stamina, from an olive oil that was “born on a tree”, from a pasta that we can enjoy again with no dressing because it is the pasta itself that gives the first taste, not the sauce that covers it…

Program and details at
Where: Milan – Milan Convention Centre (address: 5, Via Giovanni Gattamelata)
When: Jan 31 through Feb 2, 2010 (annual)
