4th Week of the Italian Cuisine in the World / Official program

The Consulate of Italy is glad to present the official program of the 4th Edition of the Italian Cuisine in the World. The aim of this initiative is to promote Italy’s culinary tradition all over the world as one of the most distinctive features of Brand Italy. The event intends to provide continuity to the themes successfully developed by Expo Milan 2015 and to highlight the role played by the Foreign Ministry’s diplomatic network. The initiative will take place in 100+ Countries with an agenda including conferences, tastings, thematic dinners, exhibitions on culinary themes and technical and scientific workshops.

The Italian Consulate in Perth is proud to present the following events:

11 November, 6-7pm, UWA Webb Lecture Theatre, all welcome: Lecture "A cookbook for a nation. Pellegrino Artusi and the Italian language". The early twentieth century was a very significant time for the new Italian State. Great efforts were made to unify Italian society, culture and language. One of the ways in which new, down-to-earth language styles entered the homes of millions of Italians, was through cookery books. The old schoolbook Italian, based on the literary classics, was replaced by a new communicative, direct style, that was much closer to everyday speech. One of the most important writers of the new cookbooks was Pellegrino Artusi, who has been called ‘the Manzoni of gastronomic Italian’. Artusi’s bestseller, Science in the Kitchen and the Art of Eating Well. A Practical Guide for families, was published in 1891 and ran to fourteen editions. It has been compared to Collodi’s Pinocchio and to Cuore by De Amicis, as popular classics of the new Italy. Artusi received letters from many of his readers, mostly women, which shows that his book helped raise literacy rates among women at a time when many were still unable to get a school education.

17 November, 11am-3pm, Government House Gardens, free entry. World of Food Festival. Italian Stall. World of Food Festival is an annual event organized by the Consular Corps of Western Australia where communities from around Perth come together to celebrate food.
