Join Me September 17 at Il Gelato in Rome For A Gelato Aperitivo

On Saturday September 17 at 6pm, the inaugural Parla Food event will be held at Il Gelato in Piazza Monte d’Oro in Rome. The gelato-aperitivo will be hosted by Claudio Torcè, Patrizio Alunni Tullini, and yours truly. Guests will have the opportunity to taste both savory and alcohol-based gelato flavors like bell peppers, cashews and Ceres, and chocolate and rum. Tastings will cost €5 and will be accompanied by a beverage. We will donate €1 from each dish to a Rome-based food charity. Join us from 6pm until closing time at Il Gelato in Piazza Monte d’Oro, just a short stroll from the Spanish Steps and Piazza Augusto Imperatore.

Il primo evento di Parla Food si svolgera’ sabato 17 settembre presso la gelateria Il Gelato, il nuovo punto vendita di Patrizio Alunni Tullini e Claudio Torcè ubicato in Piazza Monte d’Oro, a pochi passi da Piazza di Spagna, nel centro di Roma. Durante la serata sara’ possible gustare un piatto di gelati salati e stuzzichini abbinati ad un bicchiere di vino dalle 18 alle 21 per un costo di €5. Dalle 21 in poi il piatto cambierà con dei gelati a base di alcohol, sempre a €5. Per ogni piatto, sara’ donato €1 in beneficenza al progetto A CHI SERVE, che si occupa dalla raccolta di cibo dai sprechi delle grandi aziende per nutrire, appunto, a chi serve.

    Oh how I wish I could be there. I’ll have to content myself with Princeton’s Bent Spoon – where the gelato is great, but the atmosphere is far different.
