HA NOI (VNS) — Ha Noi's top Italian restaurants and gastronomy shops will gather to showcase the world-famous famous cuisine at a food festival on Saturday.
Aiming to bring together international, Italian and Vietnamese communities to celebrate and share Italian gastronomy and culture, the event will feature food stands from Mediterraneo, Luna d'Autunno, Oasis, Gelato Italia, Annam, Classic Fine Food and Punto Italia.
The festival will feature pizza, fresh pasta and wine. Salumi, cheese, gelato, coffee, and other delicacies from Italy also can be found at the event. Visitors will also have a chance to meet winemakers to learn more about Italy's grape varieties, their origins and tastes.
A pasta-eating contest and a cooking contest will challenge any one who wish to get some more fun at the festival.
All the proceeds of the lucky draw will benefit the project "A Community for All", which supports disadvantaged people.
The Italian Food Festival will take place this Saturday at the Van Ho Exhibition Centre, 2 Hoa Lu Street from 4pm to 10.30pm. — VNS
