Here's a quick glance at the program.
On Sunday, June 4, the "Republic of Food" will be on stage. Approximately 200 young chefs will animate the streets of Vico Equense's center by cooking dishes inside and outside of the nearby shops. You can enjoy their dishes in front of the florist, in the clothing boutiques or simply on the various tasting stations that will color the streets. Here's how to participate: a simple offer of 20 euros at one of the Onlus collection points will allow you to taste 5 dishes as well as a bottle of water and a coffee or to taste 4 dishes, taste a glass of wine and have a bottle of water and a coffee.
On Monday, June 5, there will be the "Charity Dinner" Over 20 star chefs will prepare a dinner for 200 diners. The great names from some of Italy's top restaurants will take guests on an unforgettable journey with classic dishes of their own restaurants. The dessert buffet will be made by the Accademia Maestri Pasticceri Italiani. This event is sold out!
On Tuesday, June 6, it will simply be the "Night of the Stars." In the beautiful scenery of the Seiano Marina, over 100 Michelin star chefs will delight participants with their street food. There will be a wonderful opportunity - just to say it - to taste the "Pizza of the Stars" of the Pizzaioli Masters and then conclude the evening in the tourist complex Le Axidie with the "Dessert Storm", a sweet moment starring over 20 of the best Italian pastry chefs.
