Photo Gallery: Koppert Cress Tour Italia: Campania, Palazzo Petrucci with Lino Scarallo
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 Koppert Cress has started 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. Tasting the different micro plants, wonderfully presented by Enrico Zallot, marketing manager of Koppert Cress for Italy, and then enjoying them incorporated into the wonderful creations of excellent Italian chefs is always an unforgetable experience.
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.
