We at Compass Cultura couldn’t be more excited for this year’s Cibo Nostrum event in Catania, Sicily. Set in Villa Bellini, Cibo Nostrum is one of the largest Italian food tasting events with 1,000+ cooks and 300 cooking shows.

On Sunday 31st March 2019 – Villa Bellini in Catania will be hosting one of the most exciting food discovery and tasting events of 2019. With more than 50 wineries and 90 food producers all taking stage in the beautiful baroque garden in Villa Bellini, 1,000 cooks will be presenting their masterpieces and showing their cooking abilities. It’s not just going to be a cookery show – Cibo Nostrum is also a real learning experience of the traditional local products, unmissable Sicilian dishes and fresh mediterranean produce.

With early spring at its doors and the already warm weather in Sicily, it’s expected that more than 30,000 people will visit the event. The ticket will grant access to the event where live cooking shows, food and drink tastings, learning and discovery will take place all day.

Food for good

Cibo Nostrum is a charity event and this year’s revenue is going to be entirely donated to Dipartimento Solidarietà Emergenze FIC, Comunità di Sant’Egidio Sicilia and Locanda del Samaritano in Catania.

Thanks to the Cookery Association and all participants, tasting amazing food and getting to know the local specialties will be a great opportunity to do something for good too.
