Event description
Meet our chefs and learn about their creations and the Authentic Italian products they use in their dishes everyday!

About this Event

The Authentic Italian Table is a three-day expo organized by the Italian American Chamber of Commerce in Chicago as part of the True Italian Taste project (www.trueitaliantaste.com).

Hosted at Ciao Chicago, each day will highlight 5 of Chicago's best Italian restaurants with live demos and dishes created from authentic Italian ingredients.

During the event you will have the unique opportunity to meet our chefs personally that will provide sample portions of their food.

Enjoy music, endless wine, and all-you-can-eat Italian creations from our incredible chef partners:

Chef Maurizio Michi from Sofi’s Restaurant offers traditional homemade Italian dishes such as orecchiette pugliesi with sausage and rapini as well as gnocchi made with authentic and imported Italian gorgonzola cheese.

Chef Jose Ovalle from Coco Pazzo Cafe offers Tuscan based classics alongside Roman inspired dishes such as bucatini all’amatriciana and cacio e pepe.

Chef Antoine Cedicci of Trattoria Ultimo and Locanda will provide house-made specialties such as gnocchi with ragu and linguine with seafood.

Chef Nicholas Russo of Munno Pizzeria & Bistro offers handmade classic dishes such as neapolitan-inspired pizza and traditional pastas.

Chef Vittorio Iasalvatore from I Monelli uses authentic Italian products to offer traditional dishes from the town of Piedimonte Matese in the south of Italy.

7pm: Don’t miss Mario Rizzotti’s class “Are you an olive oil expert (or virgin)? Learn how to taste EVOO the proper way and no bread allowed. IGP or DOP what do they mean? Learn how the European Union is going to help you to choose a real product.”

With a background as an Italian Culinary Specialist at Academia Barilla and as a judge on the Food Network’s “Iron Chef America,” Mario Rizzotti has developed a passion for educating Americans on authentic Italian ingredients.
