Authentic Italian Table: Aperitivo Edition – June 2, 2022

On June 2, over 40 food influencers were treated to a new twist on our annual Authentic Italian Table event during an evening dedicated to the most authentic Italian
tradition of all–the aperitivo! Guests joined the IACC and chef, mixologist and creator of extraordinary culinary experiences Andrea Belfiore for a hands-on cooking and mixology demonstration where they were shown how to make authentic Italian cocktails and
snacks featuring Italy’s most delicious PDO/PGI ingredients.

Participants learned how to shake up classic cocktails with an Italian flair including Venetian 75s, Negronis, Dirty Martinis and Blackberry Bourbon Sours while
enjoying elevated bar snacks featuring PDO/PGI salumi and cheeses from Italy.

Many thanks to our event sponsors Gra’it and Faccia Brutto whose delicious spirits were the basis for the evening’s signature cocktails!

A Taste of Emilia
– June 15-16, 2022

In mid-June, the IACC welcomed a trade delegation from Emilia-Romagna to the East Coast for a series of market exploration and expansion activities. Comprised of
representatives from the region’s four most important food consortia as well as representatives of some of the region’s top food producers, the delegation visited
New York City and Philadelphia to meet with local government officials and trade counterparts in the grocery, restaurant and hospitality industries.

On the occasion of the delegation’s visit to each city, the IACC hosted “A Taste of Emilia-Romagna,” a festive cocktail reception and tasting of PDO/PGI products from
Emilia-Romagna featuring specially-curated regional menus with wine pairings created by Chefs Igles Corelli, Fabio Bano and Fabio Manfredi. The events were open
exclusively to members of the food, beverage and hospitality trades.

In addition, the New York celebration featured a book party and special presentation of Alla Luciano, a collection of Maestro Luciano Pavarotti’s original
recipes and cooking secrets, led by Nicoletta Mantovani, President, Fondazione Luciano Pavarotti and Dr. Jon LaPook, Chief Medical Correspondent, CBS News.

EYE Success Story – Mattia Pina @ Modalità Italian Design Solutions

The IACC’s Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs (EYE) program is a cross-border exchange program which gives new or aspiring entrepreneurs the chance to learn from
experienced entrepreneurs running small businesses in the United States. We caught up with EYE exchange participant, Mattia Pina, who recently completed an internship at
Modalità, Inc., which provides the design, hospitality and retail industries with upscale, superior, yet inexpensive display and furniture solutions.

Mattia’s internship provided him with the opportunity to gain first-hand experience working alongside seasoned design professionals in New York and provided him with a
number of valuable takeaways at the end of his program. “The EYE Global experience in New York has gifted me three main things,” says Mattia, including a deeper
knowledge of marketing in an overseas environment, a sense of New York’s creative energy and the confidence Mattia needs return to Italy and accomplish his career goals
as a young, aspiring entrepreneur.

If you’re a fledgling entrepreneur or an established host company interested in learning more about the IACC’s EYE program, please contact our offices today.
