What is CHIC? 

CHIC is the acronym for CHARMING ITALIAN CHEF, an association of over 100 Italian chefs and cooks that work either in Italy or abroad with the aim of spreading and enhancing the country’s famed cuisine at all levels. From Michelin-starred establishments to small trattorias, the defining principles of simplicity, sustainability and wholesomeness are the base of the entire culinary culture.

How to participate on Wednesday June 20th

The entire event will be taking place at Tenuta Carretta, with the day being divided into two main segments.

From 10:00 am to around 3:00 pm, CHIC will be solely dedicated to B2B activities.

Dozens of local chefs will be able to expand their knowledge and networks by speaking with and purchasing directly from Piedmontese and Ligurian producers of the finest regional ingredients. Unique to this event is a test kitchen, where chefs will have the rare opportunity to cook and experiment with the ingredients with the direct input and expert advice of the very people who grew them!

After a small break in the afternoon, Ristorante 21.9 at Tenuta Carretta will be hosting CHIC Dinner at 8:00 pm. The dinner will be an evening of culinary delight as Flavio Costa, Giorgio Servetto and Paolo Viviani jointly prepare a gala dinner that will be paired with wines from Tenuta Carretta and Kettmeir.
