LSDM brings the Mediterranean to Scandinavia: the last stop of 2018 with great chefs and master pizza chefs discovering the new trends in italian cuisine
An immersion in the Mediterranean and in the city which is the origin of Nordic cuisine, Copenhagen. This is what is on program for Monday 29th October at 2:00pm, at the Brace restaurant (Teglgårdstræde, 8°), for the last stop of the annual international congress of gourmet cooking, LSDM. For this occasion the congress will bring the best of what the Made in Italy brand has to offer to Scandinavia, with expert interpreters ready to investigate the new trends present on the tri-color table.
The spotlight will be first and foremost on the majesty of the Mozzarella di Bufala (buffalo milk mozzarella) from Campania PDO, with further investigation into other magnificent products of protected geographical indication from the agro-food breadbasket of the Penninsula. Ample focus will also be given to the Mediterranean Diet, recognized by UNESCO in the list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, to organic cuisine, and, in general, to the sustainable agro-food supply chain.
Five workshops will be held with Italian chefs and master pizza chefs as protagonists, among whom, for a few years now have elected Copenhagen as their adopted home. The opening act will be Eva De Masi’s Roman pizza, owner of Madenitaly, the first Italian vegan restaurant in the city; wine pairings will be made by the Consorzio del Prosecco DOC (Prosecco Consortium), an emblem of success for the tricolor flag around the world. This will be followed by the pasta di Gragnano IPG created by Faby Scarica, chef at villa Chiara, Orto e Cucina in Vico Equense (NA), the talented winner of the second edition of “Top Chef Italia” (the talent show for cooking on channel Nove) and of the project “Primo Piatto dei Campi 2018” (an iniziative of LSDM and the Pastificio dei Campi). It will then be the turn of our host, the chef Nicola Fanetti, a member of the panel of judges for the Brace, and among the most interesting novelties on the panorama of the Danish capital, a city in continual gastronomic evolution; cooking which creates a bridge between Italy and Denmark which is capable of inciting curiosity and interest. Nicola will interpret another precious ingredient: the tomato. Impossible to exclude from our program is extra virgin olive oil, a pillar of the Mediterranean Diet; the speaker on this topic will be the winner of the contest “I dedicati di Olitalia”, Luca Crostelli, the sous chef at Tosca in Geneva, a temple of the Italian cooking culture in Switzerland. He is dedicated to the promotion of products from our territory on a daily basis. We will conclude in grand style with the final act entrusted to Neapolitan coffee, served in the legendary cuccuma. Presenting the various workshops will be the Danish journalist Ole Udsen, a great connoisseur of Italian enogastronomy. She will be assisted by her colleagues Lars Bjerregaard, also Danish, and Luciano Pignataro.

“The last stop for 2018 – emphasize Barbara Guerra and Albert Sapere, creators of LSDM – aims to promote, once again, the immense potential of the multi-faceted Italian agro-food breadbasket. Investigating the capabilities of our products will be in particular young Italian chefs who work abroad, outside of the Bel Paese; and who have a point of view that is therefore diverse, and comes from a daily committment to the diffusion of the culture of Italian food, at times experimenting with intelligent integration with the local culinary traditions. What is about to be concluded has been most certainly a positive year, one that has witnessed significant participation, both from the public and those working in the sector in all of our events, both in Italy and abroad. A success thanks first and foremost to the Made in Italy brand, one that continues to assert itself around the world due to the fact that it is always current andgoes beyond the passing trends.”
