CHINESE CUISINES MEET ITALIAN WINES: THE GUIDE LAUNCHED IN BEIJING
As a part of the program of the Italian Cuisine and Wines World Summit, the first Guide of its kind has been presented at the Hilton Hotel Wangfujing.
Introduced by Jessie Zhang, the CEO of Star Gourmet Communications who is the local partner of the initiative, Rosario Scarpato, Director of the Summit and publisher of the guide, has pointed out that Italy and China are two gastronomic superpowers and the marriage between Chinese cuisines and Italian wines is a win-win situation.
Vinicio Eminenti, Delegate for China of AIS, who has partnered the Summit in the publication of the Guide, went through the most interesting pairings. Giovanna Gargiulo, the Guide Project Manager, said that Chinese tastes has changed and what was impossible some time ago, like the matchings proposed by the guide, are now trends-to-be in the near future.
Eight exceptional Chinese chefs have proposed their plates paired with Italian wines, as suggested in the guide. More to come.
