The Restaurant of Villa Torretta Hotel in Milan – Sesto San Giovanni has been the epicentre of the celebrations of IDIC 2012 in Italy. Inside the beautiful frescoed Restaurant’s rooms a launching press conference was hosted on January 12, with video conferences with New York and Moscow where similar events were held simultaneously. On January 17 a number of VIP selected guests gathered again in the Hotel to taste the Ossobuco in Gremolata alla Milanese cooked by Chef Angelo Nasta. In both cases the events were organized and coordinated by Aldo Palaoro (ICS Media and PR Agency) and Maurizio Palazzo, Food and Beverage Manager of the Restaurant. Among the guests there were talented chefs in both the occasions, including Tano Simonato, of Tano Passami l’olio Restaurant in Milan, and Matteo Scibilia, Chef Patron of the Osteria della Buona Condotta (Ornago) and President of the Consortium of Chefs of Lombardia.
