Green Pea: the first Green Retail Park in the world is in Turin – Italian Cuisine

Green Pea: the first Green Retail Park in the world is in Turin

A new retail dedicated to the theme of respect and sustainability, where everything is green

It happens that even great entrepreneurs can be influenced and inspired by the young Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg, the champion of the green revolution, respect for the environment and sustainable living.
As we all know, Greta is bringing the problems of climate change around the world to the fore, reaching young and old alike in every part of the globe.

It also happened to Oscar Farinetti, which after the positive experiences of Unieuro and Eataly, has recently inaugurated, Green Pea, the first green retail park in the world. A project created with his son Francesco, a real example of how you can think and create a 100% sustainable structure: 15 thousand square meters dedicated to leisure, home, clothing and food.
A selection of products made in Italy and from around the world, all made with a low environmental impact. The numbers of Green Pea: 66 shops, distributed over five levels of services and products, a museum, two restaurants and a cocktail bar.
And then a swimming pool (heated in winter), a club dedicated to leisure and a Spa.

In the Covid-19 era, entrances will be limited, no more than 1000 customers at the same time within the structure, with temperature measurement and security to keep people at a distance. For the moment it will be open only during the week, from Monday to Friday, 10-20 hours.
New provisions from the DPCM are expected for weekends and holidays.

Two proposals dedicated to food: 100 wines and Affini (the third born in the Affini house) and a completely new look for the starred Casa Vicina, which has been part of Eataly Torino since 2007, which finally returns to see the light of the sun, in the its new large spaces.
On the top floor a cocktail bar, in the area dedicated to the Otium, between the Spa and the cantilevered swimming pool with an incredible view of the Alps.

100 Wines and Affines

Davide Terenzio Pinto and his team have created a very interesting and ambitious project: a brand new laboratory of experimentation and innovation in the world of liqueurs, cider, beer, mixology, but also cooking, with a dedicated proposal.
And it is the liqueurs that have a central role in the proposal of 100 Wines and Affines with the relaunch of the historic brand Subalpine Distilleries. After the presentation of Fernet, launched in recent months, 100 Vini e Affini offers four brand new liqueurs: Nuvolari, one of Affini's flagship products, in a cocktail liqueur version; the Ascari and the Green Bee (green bee) created to celebrate the birth of Green Pea, with a bright green color and prepared with 100% natural elements, the Elixir Le Masche.
Open Monday to Friday from 10am to 6pm.
The gastronomic proposal will also focus on sustainability, with a selection of organic, local raw materials and reuse of waste.
The idea of ​​#UseTheExisting is interesting, inspired by the Zegna family who introduced it to the world of fashion. They range from coffee grounds, for the creation of new syrups, to wine leftovers to create new Hippocratic wines from waste. To give a second life to everything that exists and must not be wasted.

Casa Vicina Restaurant

The Vicinas have been restaurateurs for over 100 years, five generations who have passed the baton at the helm of one of the most known and loved restaurants in the city, for traditional cuisine, always original and never banal proposals, which have their roots in tradition of Piedmontese cuisine.
Located on the third floor of the structure, 300 square meters of space between dining room and kitchen, large windows, natural light that illuminates the whole room from which you can enjoy the view of the Turin hills.
Outside, an outdoor area available for guests to admire the city from a new point of view.
For the moment open only for lunch (Tuesday to Sunday), pending new provisions for the next few weeks.

A 34-meter long bench in the shape of a trullo where you can feel at home or on vacation again. From orecchiette with turnip tops to pucce; from bowler hats to pasticciotti. And in addition to the food we brought music, pizzica and taranta, the unmistakable sound of the tambourine; our ways of speaking, the accent, the 'meh' a little everywhere.

Affini's aperitif delivery in Turin – Italian Cuisine

Affini's aperitif delivery in Turin

From half-liter cocktails delivered in the first lockdown to recipes in jars, Affini inaugurates a new concept of mixology and cuisine

During the last lockdown the boys of Affine were the first to create the delivery as an aperitif, with the half-liter cocktail. Now, for this second lockdown and consequent closure of the premises, they have worked out a new and very particular delivery service.

It will be active three days a week, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and will offer three different types of "aperitif experience": single, double and "family" version.

Affini's best cocktails are made by the head barman Michele Marzella and, in the kitchen, the chef Niccolò Tealdi, for an explosive mix of flavors and aromas. Customers can order Affini classics, such as Daiquiri, Americano, Cosmopolitan, Nuvolari, or DopTravaj (after work, in Piedmontese).

Equally delicious and original are the chef's proposals Tealdi: Chicken sticks breaded in cornmeal with sweet and sour sauce or the fried octopus, shrimp and squid breaded in corn flour or the potato croquettes, served with vegan mayonnaise or cheese and pepper sauce.

A delicious preview for Affini customers, the dishes of the new brand 100 wines and similar, soon to open, which will cut the ribbon in the coming weeks in a very particular location, the Green Pea, the first Green retail park in the world, signed by Oscar Farinetti (former creator of Eataly).
The possibility of tasting the dishes that will be offered in the menu of 100 wines and Affini: the cocktails can be ordered directly on the Affini social channels, or on the Affini Torino website, again combined with new dishes, designed to be served in a classic Piedmontese Burnia.

Finally, the new delivery concept by Affini, the Millenium project, a tribute to some of the great personalities of the 2000s, with as many cocktails created for the occasion:
Obama Mama, a captivating mix of rum, banana and cocoa, created as a tribute to the former president of the United States, and Loose your seltz, based on bourbon, saffron liqueur, fresh mint leaves and ginger ale, in homage to the singer Eminem.
To serve the cocktails, custom glasses have been created for each character. All to collect.
