And then all the good food enclosed in 26 thematic workshops, bar, restaurant, brewery, cafeteria as well as a very rich and interesting calendar of events. Central Market has inaugurated a turin April 13 and will be opened 364 days a year from 8 to midnight.

174097Going to the market goes back to being meeting, knowledge and conviviality, as it has always been since the times. For a couple of years now, for nothing, taking the aperitif in the market has become fashionable and various Italian cities now offer their citizens the experience of these markets, which are living places, and not exclusively commercial ones.

It is however a commercial format devised in 1994 entrepreneur Umberto Montano, and launched together with the group Human Company of the Cardini-Vannucchi family. The first was, the following year, the historic market of San Lorenzo a Florence, transformed into the Central Market of Florence. Then it was the turn of the Capital, with the Central Market Rome, an agora of food & culture. Now Turin. IS soon Milan, since November, near the Central Station – in the city, however, the Mercato del Suffragio already lives and grows, a market with cuisine in the city center and the Duomo Market.

174100The starting vision is that of restore centrality to the figure of the artisans and their products; return to the city a good, convivial and cultural "square". In fact, in Central Markets this is how they are born events organized in synergy with city and national institutions, of art, music, science and culture, always free and open to the public. Of course, we are dealing with a format, so there is a homogeneity – starting with the insignia of the artisans – that can please or not.

But back to the new Central Market in Turin. It is located at Palatine Center, in an area in full redevelopment – the neighborhood of Porta Palazzo is occupies 4.500 square meters distributed on three levels.

174103At the entrance, the bread: the "Bread of Porta Palazzo" it is baked by the mill, entrusted to Mattia Giardini is Alberto Iossetti of ViVa La Farina and offers everyone the possibility of create your own customized flour blend. Also new is the approach to Butcher's shop with two different proposals: Marco Martini, historical Piedmontese reality that follows the entire production chain of the queen Fassona, and the Savigni family with the meat bred in Tuscany in full respect of animal welfare.

At the Central Market in Turin there will also be great Masters of Cuisine, such as the visionary Davide Scabin, the one who left the provincial trattoria, who will propose here White coal, with charcoal cooking only proposals for soups, eggs, vegetables. The Green Fairy, by Marcello Trentini, serves instead vegetarian cuisine. In both cases, a pop price. As it will be for the Del change pharmacy, the restaurant del Mercato in which it will be possible to reserve the table.

174106Also on the ground floor there are the traditional Neapolitan pizza of Marco Fierro, the ice cream of Alberto Marchetti, made with a careful selection of the best raw materials. The Chianina burger of Enrico Lagorio, produced with meat from its historic farms in Val di Chiana, cheeses and butter of Beppino Occelli, authentic expression of the flavors of the Langhe and the mountain pastures, is the truffle of Luciano Savini, enhanced by the gastronomic knowledge of Aurelio Barbero. There will be traditional Roman specialties enclosed in the Trapizzino, fresh pasta of Egidio Michelis as well as cheeses and cured meats selected by Beppe Giovale. The golden and fragrant fry of Martino Bellincampi, between Roman and Piedmontese tradition. And then the perfumes of the Sicilian specialties of Carmelo Pannocchietti, the Pleaves the Mediterranean of Valerio Lo Russo, the rotisserie with free-range chickens of Alessandro Baronti is wine, between glasses and bottles, expertly selected by Luca Boccoli. Finally, exclusively the first "experimental" Cortilia physical store, the online agricultural market, which for the first time will introduce its fresh products to buy directly at the market.

174109On the second floor, in addition to the distillery of Simone Mari, open until late and spaces dedicated to training, the two historic ice-houses dating back to the 18th century, they represent the stage for hosting a busy calendar of cultural events. I'm over 350 events already scheduled for this year. For example the 24 and 25 April the two laboratories approaching the jazz for children. The inevitable collaborations with Torino Jazz Festival, Il Salone del Libro, MITO and many other institutions and associations cultural highlights of the city.

The rebirth of Porta Palazzo: Turin Central Market, Gallina Fish Shop and Resale 2 – Italian Cuisine

The rebirth of Porta Palazzo: Turin Central Market, Gallina Fish Shop and Resale 2

Lots of new openings in Turin. Today we tell you what is happening in the Porta Palazzo neighborhood, a source of ideas and social inclusion and a new food and wine district.

The ferment for the new city openings does not stop. Rather. Turin has never been as gastronomically active as in recent months. The city is literally exploding with events for the inauguration of new restaurants, bistros and cafes. New life and new beautiful projects are coming to light in these days.
Today we will discover three new realities, including the opening of the Central Market Turin of Saturday 13 April.

Central Market comes from an idea by Umberto Montano and the Cardini-Vannucchi family and follows the previous openings in Florence, in 2014 in the historic market of San Lorenzo and Rome in 2016, inside the Termini Station. In Turin, Porta Palazzo, the home of the largest outdoor market in Europe, comes to life in an area that is the cradle of urban multiculturalism. In fact it is located just a few meters from the Market and with the market shares this majestic and beautiful square. The project is part of the new redevelopment of the Porta palazzo district, where other young entrepreneurs are investing money and resources.
For the Central Market the economic investment was important, 6 million euros and 6 months of work, inside 26 artisan shops, a mill, a didactic area and a roasting. A complete schedule of events until the end of 2019, which has around 350.

The social aggregation, the inclusion, are at the base of the Central Market project, which does not want to be just a place to go to eat or do the shopping, but which wants to become the new cultural pole of the city, like a big square of market where everyone gets together, meet, talk in all languages.
Upon entering we are greeted by an unmistakable aroma, that of freshly baked bread, thanks to Raffaele D’Errico and the bread of Porta Palazzo, prepared with Viva La Farina flour and where it will be possible to select the blend to prepare a unique bread.
Continuing the tour we discover the Cheeses of Beppino Occelli, which will also follow the Educational Cheese Workshop (open from May with the Lorenzo de 'Medici Cooking School led by Carla and Fabrizio Guarducci and the didactic Roasting by Franco Mondi).
Alberto Marchetti's award-winning ice creams, Stefano Callegari's Trapizzino with traditional Roman recipes, we choose one of all, the delicious chicken cacciatore. I Maestri di Cucina with Davide Scabin and his Carbone Bianco and exclusive cooking made with charcoal for meat, eggs, vegetables and soups. The Pharmacy of the Change, with the direction of Matteo Baronetto and the traditional Piedmontese dishes, Marcello Trentini (Magorabin) in a healthy version with the Green Fairy, a brand new 100% Green format, including fruit and vegetable extracts and a delicious vegetarian menu.
Then the proposals by Savini Tartufi, the chianina burger by Enrico lagorio, the Girarrosto with free-range chickens by Alessandro Baronti, the fresh Piedmontese pasta by Egidio Michelis and the Cortilia experiment, the online agricultural market that for the first time proposes a physical store.
There are many gastronomic experiences to do and, as they say at the Mercato Centrale Torino, there is no taste to tell it. Come, see and taste.
Mercato Centrale Torino, open 364 days a year, from 8am to midnight

Fish market Gallina patron Beppe Gallina
He was among the first to believe in this neighborhood, when he decided to invest in a new fish counter, his historian Banco No. 2 at the Porta Palazzo Fish Market (which boasts a century-long history, since 1920, four generations of fishmongers) moved from the fish market to a new place right next to the farmers' market, beyond the square, inserting a small bistro dedicated to fish cuisine, cooking with the catch of the day inside the fish market. Now Beppe Gallina doubles and hits the mark, with the new evening opening in a larger room, next to the Pescheria, which replicates the lucky one lunch package at € 15 all inclusive, without reservation. To be able to sit at the Pescheria Gallina table (do not call it a restaurant!) You will have to be armed with a lot of patience and stand in line to be able to grab a table, both for lunch (in the fish shop) and for dinner, in the new one just next to. In practice, the fish market is doubled, with a soul day and night. To satisfy all the greedy ones. Always open, except on Wednesdays for dinner, to allow the kitchen brigade to set up the room and the line and take a breath of air. We advise you not to miss out on a taste of the kitchen of the Pescheria (the mixed fried fish is fabulous), because it is always a nice meal.
In the Bistrot of Beppe Gallina, from April 1st, plastic bottles are banned. Water on tap is offered to all customers, to market workers and to those who go to Porta Palazzo to do the shopping. The revolutions start from the bottom and we hope that many will take the initiative of Gallina to change mentality and fight the use of plastic in restaurants.
