If you have never had the chance to visit Venice, or if like all who have, you want to visit it again, this is an exceptional opportunity to discover, in the setting of this Italian city which is unlike any other in the world, one of the most important events dedicated to gourmet fans. Conceived and organized by the food & wine critic Marcello Coroninini and this year celebrating its fourth edition, Gusto in Scena has chosen this time round as theater of the event a location with incredible visual impact and with inestimable artistic value: the Great School of St. John the Evangelist. Great Italian chefs will take turns on the stage on April 15, 16, and 17, presenting their history, their experiences, and their novelties at the congress "Chefs in Concert" Visitors will have the opportunity, alongside the "Magnificent Wines of the Sea, Mountain, Valley, and Hills and Tempting Seductions of Food", to become acquainted with Italian food & wine excellence through the best producers and wine cellars that will make their appearance.
The new feature of this edition is "Fuori di Gusto" (or "Mad for Taste") which during the event's scheduled evening will host the chefs of 20 restaurants and "bacari" (typical Venetian inns) of Venice and its province, who together with the chefs who will be moderating the congress, will propose a choice of meals prepared ensemble and dedicated to "Gusto in Scena". Their culinary creations will also be representative of the regions they come from.
What we have here, simply put, is a delightful moment for the palate which is sure to communicate to you, through the world of Haute Cuisine, the culture and traditions of all of Italy.
I also feel like recommending two lovely dining spots: the first is the Osteria Vecio Fritolin, which owes its name to the "fritolin", places where in the past you could buy fresh fried fish, an inn that offers diners the historical and traditional cuisine of Venice.
The second is Naranzaria in Rialto, where different cultures, savors, and people meet as in the best Venetian tradition of old, when this marvelous city was a meeting point between the West and East. Here you can enjoy a cosmopolitan spin on Venetian cuisine, with ingredients all 100% local.
