You are invited to a Christmas Aperitif and Wine Tasting

“A Christmas Aperitif & Wine Tasting for the Italian Community” will be held on Wednesday 11th December, from 5:30pm onwards at the “Spianata Roman Bakery & Paninoteca”, in London. The event is presented by the Italian Chamber of Commerce and Industry for the UK, in cooperation with Forest & Ray Italian Dental Practice and Spianata Roman Bakery & Paninoteca.

The event will be a unique occasion to taste freshly made Italian sandwiches at a central cafe in London, while making acquaintance with members of the Italian business community.

It will be possible to taste sandwiches which have received prizes such platinum winner of the 2012 “Best Independent Sandwich Bar of the Year” from the British Sandwich Industry, Gold winner in the Great Taste Awards 2011 for its own-baked bread, and quoted in Harden’s 2012 as “Panini heaven”.

Italy boosts an acclaimed and strong tradition of street food, such as piadina romagnola, arancini, olive ascolane, filetti di baccalà romano, arrosticini abruzzesi, polenta fritta veneta, focacce liguri, pesce fritto and the yummy sandwiches stuffed with local cold cuts.

According to a recent online survey by coldiretti, Last summer saw an 11% drop in presences at restaurants, “trattorie” and “pizzeria”. Italians eat street food mainly on holiday, when three Italians out of four buy some of their meals from kiosks and little shops. This phenomenon conciliates the need of cutting on expenses and the discovery of new tastes. Last summer 45% had chosen local street food, while 24% preferred international food, as for example, hot dogs and only 4% had chosen kebabs. 

“A Christmas Aperitif & Wine Tasting for the Italian Community” won’t be just about sandwiches and business, you will also sample wine provided by “Proietti Wine Firm” a family-run business in the trade for three generations, located on a hillside beneath Olevano Romano, about 50 km away from the South-East of Rome.  

At the end of the evening you will have the opportunity to enter for amazing prizes provided by Forest & Ray Italian Dental Practice.
