Party in Vico 2024 between food and “feelings” (also) with us – Italian cuisine reinvented by Gordon Ramsay

La Cucina Italiana


«Festa a Vico is one of those places where anyone who loves food or works in the food world should go sooner or later. I have always thought this and when, two days ago, the maître d’ of a starred restaurant told me this phrase, I had the confirmation that even the professionals are convinced of it. Because the three days dedicated to gastronomy, meetings and charity organized every year by Gennaro Esposito, two Michelin stars at the Torre del Saracino in Vico Equenseis always everyone’s party: a meeting of pop and top, of popular and gourmet food, of traditional products and great novelties, to be discovered in the square, in the streets and in the great restaurants, simultaneously contributing to the many noble causes of which chef Esposito has always acts as a spokesperson.

Festa a Vico, the “feeling” edition

This year, the 21st edition, the appointment is from 10 to 12 June with the evocative title There is feeling and a program capable of embracing every nuance of food and that universal emotion that it is able to evoke. «Because where everything makes sense there is feeling to put it in the words of Pino Daniele.

Party in Vico e The Italian kitchen

Sentiment, therefore, but also a lot of concreteness, because Festa a Vico generates large numbers: this year 50 thousand attendees are expected, over 300 Italian and foreign chefs and more than 100 thousand food and wine delicacies. Among the news there is one that concerns us: this year we will also be there, in one of the most anticipated events.

Together with chef Gennaro Esposito, The Italian kitchen has thought of a new format for the traditional Festa a Vico gala dinner: a dinner with a title Bites of Italy, the celebration of Italian cuisine to support the candidacy of “Italian cuisine between sustainability and biocultural diversity” as a UNESCO intangible heritage promoted by our magazine. It will be an evening with a parterre of international chefs who will compete with Italian ingredients to propose dishes never proposed before. Among foreigners, for example, Narda Lepesbest female chef in Latin America in 2020 according to the international ranking 50 Best Restaurants; and then Christophe Peleexecutive chef Le Clarence Parigi (two Michelin Stars), Katsu Nakaji, two stars at Hatsune Sushi in Tokyo, and Antonio Iacoviello, head chef of Gucci Osteria in Tokyo (one Michelin star). Among the many Italians, Pino Cuttaia, two Michelin stars at La Madia (Licata) and the brothers Chicco and Bobo Cerea, three Michelin stars with Da Vittorio in Brusaporto (Bergamo) and seven overall in their restaurants around the world. A dinner for 240 people of which the entire proceeds will go to charities that operate at a local level, in the province of Naples and Campania, and nationally, such as the Umberto Veronesi Foundation.

The Festa a Vico program

The tastings of the dishes that chefs from all over Italy will create on 11 June, on the day dedicated to Republic of Food, among the streets, gardens, buildings and shops of Vico, which will be transformed into an open-air restaurant. Finally, on June 12th there will be the traditional one Sejanus Way in the fishing village where Gennaro Esposito’s Torre del Saracino restaurant is also located, which will transform into a haute cuisine experimentation hub with events dedicated to professionals bringing together young and promising chefs and sommeliers among the most appreciated in the world.

Last but not least, on each of the three days there will be parties, workshops, dances, songs, concerts and shows everywhere. All this in one of the most beautiful places in the world: la Sorrento Coast. In short, if you were looking for an idea to get started, here it is.

Weather forecast for April 25th and what to cook


After the Easter long weekend, it’s time for other days of celebration for Italians. But what do they say? weather forecast for April 25th? Because sun or rain changes the plans of us cooks a lot! Well, we have to tell you that the traditional April 25 picnic might be unstable.

What’s the weather like on April 25th?

To find out what they say weather forecast for April 25th, we relied on the meteo.it press agency, which reports very clearly what the trend will be. “Between Tuesday 23 and Wednesday 24 April the disturbance arriving from Scandinavia should also affect the Centre-South. Its transit will be accompanied by a new influx of cold airwith temperatures that will remain average or even below: the climate should be particularly cool for the season, particularly in the northern and central regions.

According to the current weather trend, Thursday On April 25th the disturbance will bring residual rainfall to the middle Adriatic and the south before finally moving away from Italy in the second part of the day. The weather trend for the following days and the long weekend of April 25th is still very uncertain: according to the latest updates, a rather cold climate for the season, with temperatures average or even below.”

What to cook on April 25th?

Since the weather in Italy is uncertain or even rainy, the menu for April 25th really has no limits. In practice, if you can indulge in the classic picnic in the meadows or on the beach green light for gourmet sandwiches, pasta salads, parmigianas, grills and barbecues without too many problems. In reverse, the rest of Italy may have to give up going out in the open airbut if you have a sheltered balcony or terrace you might still be able to cook two ribs on the grill!

Our suggestion when the weather is uncertain it is best to choose to prepare recipes which, in the event of an unexpected awakening with the sun, can be quickly transported. Today you could cook lasagna, parmesan, savory pies, tarts, tiramisu, which if lucky can be put in Tupperware.

Otherwise, for those who choose to be cautious anyway, we recommend a hearty first course, followed by Sunday roast meatballs accompanied by fried vegetables, and an excellent dessert such as trifle.

Here are many recipes for your April 25th
