Milan

La bella Italia. Milan, Italy is famous for fashion and design but what about the food scene? Milan is where design and kitchen connect. Besides the rush of food design events that happen during Milan
Design Week, the city is host to FTK Technology For the Kitchen , Identita Golose, and other culinary conferences, exhibitions, masterclasses, tastings, show-cooking events, and markets.

Eat
Milan’s Design mood is challenging diners to approach classic Italian cuisine in new ways. Nearby resident of Modena, chef Massimo Bottura and Rome’s, chef Christina Bowerman can often be found at
local events presenting new interpretations of traditional ingredients or recipes. Must-have dishes: Cotoletta or the Risotto alla Zafferano.

Drink
In Milan they say “real business is done after 7:00.” Milanese happy hour or aperitivo is the most famous in Italy. Milan eats late. Officially, aperitivo is from 6-9pm since lunch is from 1-2pm but no one really goes before 7:00pm. It usually includes stuzzichini (finger food) or a buffet with any mix of pastas, rice, bread, and pizza. The drink of choice for aperitivo is the Sbagliato or the Negroni made with Campari or Aperol.

Experience
Sustainability and experience is on Milanese’ minds. The mix of classically-trained chefs, well-travelled mixologists, and the food-related projects brought to the city by young designers and students make Milan an exciting destination for design enthusiasts looking for an adventurous or classic dining experience.
