4th World Italian Cuisine Week
A week to enjoy special menus devised by the best Italian chefs living in Buenos Aires.

4th World Italian Cuisine Week

The 4th World Italian Cuisine Week takes place in Buenos Aires November 18 to 24 2019 under the slogan “Food education: the culture of taste." 
Different initiatives will take place to promote Italian gastronomy, run by the main Italian institutions and associations in Argentina.
 
Celebrating Italian cuisine in Buenos Aires has a special emotional connection because of the strong link between Italy and Argentina owing to immigration, and there's no better link to celebrate this than through the food.
 
The initiative, led by Italian tourism office ENIT in Buenos Aires and chefs belonging to BACI, the association of Italian chefs in Buenos Aires, will see special menus of Italian dishes offered at restaurants throughout the city.
 
In this edition, the BACI chefs have chosen the cheese Pecorino Romano DOC as the star ingredient of the week.
