Collateral Events


Presentation of the book by Vittorio Castellani aka Chef Kumalé
with the participation of the author

We live in a multi-ethnic world in which each day we come into contact with many diverse customs, behaviour and cultures that are frequently unknown to us.
The universe of eating is far more than just food: it comprises rites, beliefs, ceremonies and taboos that make eating in company one of the most delightful and interesting ways of getting to know others.
This book is an excellent opportunity for the reader to explore the world at the table and to experience a “gastronomadic” journey that knows no frontiers or boundaries.
