Sliced, stewed, pureed, cooked or raw: over the centuries, the tomato has become the king of the Mediterranean diet. The versatile consistency and flavor of this savory fruit have made the pomodoro one of the most important and omnipresent ingredients in the Italian cuisine; just imagine what a pizza would be without a tasty layer of salsa di pomodoro, or a steaming bowl of spaghetti without a juicy condiment of sugo di pomodoro…
Mutti, the leading Italian producer of tomato products from Emilia Romagna, is synonymous with the word pomodoro, offering a wide range of products of the utmost quality that we at Eataly are proud to sell. Francesco Mutti, owner and CEO of the family brand, will be at La Scuola for the first time to share the history of Mutti and explore their line of products. Carlo Casoni, Mutti's Executive Chef, will incorporate Mutti products into four unique and authentic tomato recipes, demonstrating each dish for you to taste paired with complementary wines. Class will be complete with adapted recipes and tasting notes to take home.
