Photo Gallery: Koppert Cress Tour Italia: 1st Stop – La Subida, Friuli Venezia Giulia

Koppert Cress specializes in cresses; seedlings of unique plants, which each have their own specific effect on the senses. Flavour, fragrance, feel or presentation, there is a cress for all. And the assortment is widening. Every year at least one new item is added to the collection of Micro-vegetables. A collection, which is presented as ‘Architecture Aromatique’.

With March 2011 has Carpe Diem Club started for Koppert Cress an unique tour in Italy, by organizing each month a dinner in one of the restaurants of the region to present the rich kingdom of Koppert Cress flavours through creativity of a great chef.

Each event is dedicated to invited chefs and journalists, some places will be left also for passionate foodies who want to take part of this unique event.

The first stop was in Friuli Venezia Giulia.

The first Italian event will take place at La Subida practically on the border with Slovenia, owned by the legendary Joško Sirk. Restaurant with a big respect for tradition and territory will open its doors to new flavours. Beautiful challenge to incorporate micro plants into the tasty creations have gathered two great chefs:

Ana Roš from Hiša Franko as guest


Alessandro Gavagna from La Subida as host.

Play between two different strong personalities, between male and female, Italian and Slovenian tradition and last but not least two different sensibilities was a promise of an unforgetable experience for all passionate of tastes and they succeeded great!

Wines for the evening were offered by Joško Renčel and Gianluca Anzelin.
