Terra Madre Day: traditional Italian lunch

Terra Madre Day is Slow Food’s annual day to promote the diversity of food traditions and production. Since 2009, each year on Slow Food’s anniversary, 10 December, food communities and Slow Food convivia all around the world celebrate local eating, agricultural biodiversity and sustainable food production.

To celebrate this year’s Terra Madre Day, Slow Food Hong Kong is proud to present a traditional lunch with Trattoria Caffe Monteverdi, possibly the most authentic Italian restaurant in Hong Kong. We will be able to enjoy in a cosy setting dishes from different localities of Italy, featuring produce under the Slow Food Presidia. Mr Armando Osmani, owner of the restaurant, will talk about each dish and its special ingredients, and how Slow Food principles are applied in his restaurant.
