After the debut in Rome STREEAT Foodtruck Festival was also a great success in Florence with an attendance of around 50,000 people, with 3,000 arancini, 7500 arrosticini, 3000 fried pizzas which delighted, along with many other delicacies, the audience that took part in the Florentine leg of the STREEAT FOOD TRUCK FESTIVAL last weekend - the only Italian festival entirely dedicated to quality food on wheels and with free admission.
The trucks are ready to continue their journey through Italy and on 24, 25 and 26 April they will park in BOLOGNA where, in view of the expected turnout, the location has been moved to PARCO NORD (no longer Parco 11 Settembre as previously announced).
The first Italian festival entirely dedicated 'to street food' will involve the capital of Emilia in a three-day event where food will be the absolute protagonist: not only thanks to the pleasures of the palate, but also to a series of side events such as music, entertainment, meetings and debates.
These are the SHOW COOKING scheduled during the three-day festival (organised in collaboration with Food Genius Academy - FGA, specialising in consultancy for the food & beverage sector and promoter of corporate and public events with top chefs recognised nationally and internationally).
Friday 24 April : Pietro Bonacorsi (president of Kitchen Date, responsible for relations with slow food restaurateurs, FGA Bologna lecturer) will propose fassona eggs mushrooms asparagus (raw fassona meatballs, fried eggs bazzotte, lemon asparagus and mushroom dashi and smoked bacon); cream of peas with mint with melting calamari with grapefruit salicornia.
Saturday 25 April, Dario Picchiotti (executive chef Trattoria Sacerno, FGA lecturer) will prepare boulogneise cheeseburger (hamburger stuffed with tortellini, smoked friggione, parmesan rib and green sauce). On the other hand, Claudio Sordi (executive chef restaurant I Carracci) will prepare "la lingua batte dove la patata duole" (the tongue beats where the potato hurts), i.e. a milk sandwich with beef tongue with cherry tomatoes and basil, potato mayonnaise and crispy potatoes.
Sunday 26 AprilFabio Berti (executive chef Trattoria Bertozzi, FGA lecturer): meatballs street food style and Francesco Carbone (executive chef Acqua Pazza, FGA lecturer) with tortellino street food.
