With more than 1,000 people participating on Sunday 13/9/2015, the first edition of the Italian Wine & Food Festival was sold out and a must-attend event on the weekend social agenda in Perth. The Festival brought together 1,000 Italian wine-and-food passionate, 12 wine exhibitors, 10 food stalls, and a star line-up of chefs, journalists, and sommeliers. Thanks to the support of the City of Perth, the Festival took place in the perfect scenario of the Perth Town Hall and had the chance to welcome 2 wine importers from Vasto, Italian Sister City of the City of Perth. During her official speech, the Rt. Hon. The Lord Mayor, Lisa-M. Scaffidi addressed the Festival as a key cornerstone in building international relationships and collaborations. Many of the more than 100 Italian wines in the Festival Tasting Hall made on the day their first appearance in Western Australia, and during the 5 Festival Wine Classes they were presented to a selected audience of wine professionals and lovers. For the first time ever 5 Australia’s top Italian chefs collaborated to give festivalgoers a unique foodie experience: MasterChefs favourite Josh Catalano, Danny Russo from Sydney, Perth golden chef Joel Valvasori, and the Italian stars Maurizio Di Ciano, Giuseppe Pagliaricci and Egidio Squillace. The healthy cuisine expert Federica Nucci presented the 8 shows run on the ILVE Cooking Stage and the first ever demonstration of edible cocktails by Mixology.
