PatataSpritz** A 2018 novelty

Parco, Piazza del Grande Prato
A mobile catering station designed with the aim of creating anywhere an event with a unique and original style. At Orticolario 2018 it is in the midst of trees, in an ambiance perfect to sip Spritz Aperol among red oranges, ice, prosecco, and music, with the chance to taste the “Apatatas”, delicious homemade French fries with Maldon salt.
In addition, the proposal for a “playful” picnic.

Park, Piazza del Grande Prato
Born from the idea of the star chef Mariangela Susigan, “Ortofritto” is a delicious street food with ingredients deriving from the Piedmontese mixed fried foods.
A cornet of sweet and crispy vegetables, fried instantly: apple, amaretti, semolina, courgettes, fennel, aubergines and of course sage!
In addition, the proposal for a “playful” Pic-Nic.

Ristorante Gardenia
Caluso (To)


Born from the idea of a few keen architects and a car designer, “Aperegina” is a nice vintage style Ape Piaggio with a colorful wood-fired oven. On board you can find all the necessary ingredients to prepare the best pizza according to the Neapolitan tradition. And the chef? If you want, the chef is you! With our help you can roll out the dough, garnish the pizza and help us bake it in the wood-fired oven. Because with ApeRegina, everyone becomes protagonist!
