Italy’s delightful pre-dinner ritual began in 1786, in the northern city of Turin, created by the inventor of vermouth.
A light evening drink before a meal quickly became popular, and soon all the bars and cafes of Italy’s big cities began serving up cocktails to their fashionable 19th century clients. Today, the aperitivo still plays an important role in Italy’s social life.
During this lively presentation, you’ll discover the fascinating stories behind Italy’s most iconic cocktails like Negroni, Bellini, Aperol Spritz, and Americano. You’ll also discover regional appetizer specialties from south and north, including crostini, pizzette, panettone gastronomico, and “cicchetti,” Venice’s famed version of tapas.
Registrants will receive recipes for cocktails and simple-to-make classic Italian appetizers.
