I will welcome my guests in my home and explain to them why I choose the dishes we are going to prepare, all based on the concept of simple cooking reusing bread. Origin of the recipes, territories an old traditions they come from will be detailed. Guests will prepare a whole meal based on a main ingredient: bread. Bread is present in so many family recipes that remind us the times when cooking was a question of few ingredients and nothing went wasted. The challenge was to make a good and rich family meal with poor ingredients. That's why bread has been used so widely in the Italian home cooking: simple dishes are still very popular for their great taste! Fake Pizza or Panzanella/ Bread and Tuna fish salad: recipes to recycle stale bread into tasty starters. Bread Omelette or Bread and Vegetable nuggets : rich recipes for main courses Bread Cake: a recipe to recycle stale bread, broken cookies. Someof the dishes above listed wil be presented already cooked, in order to have the chance to taste them, but all the recipes will be prepared at the moment, with the help of the participants who will experience : 1) preparation of the ingredients; 2) preparation of the dish ; 3) demonstration of the cooking (oven and stove). 4) At the end, a taste of each dish will be served together with a glass of wine. 5) A small cookbook with bread-based recipes will be given to the guests.
I love good food and eating well, but I hate wasting food. 10 years ago, the consciousness of the great problem of food waste in our society, brought me to join the local Charity Food Bank in my town: Banco Alimentare Lombardia. Today, I run in Como its programme devoted to recovery and donation of fresh food surpluses for charitable purposes. This changed my way of cooking and I specialized in “everyday-0-waste kitchen”, also through my blog http://www.messaggidalfrigo.it/en/ that collects recipes, mainly from italian tradition (writing is my job, as journalist and editor). I concentrated my attention on bread and published 2 books of recipes based on the use of stale bread. Now, I want to share my competence in home cooking without wasting food, contributing to reduce food waste.
The menu is made of taste of one starter, one main course, a slice of cake. Restrictions: My Simple Italian cooking uses…
One glass of red Italian wine per person

My house gathers the art works of abstract rationalist painter Alvaro Molteni, my father. It is located in the "Rationalism bloc" of Como town: 5 minutes walk there are buildings by rationalist architects Pietro Lingeri and Giuseppe Terragni. I will be glad to explain what Rationalism and Abstractism mean for local cultural and artistic history.
