Euro-Toques Italy and Italy at Table have launched the hashtag #siamocinesi to counter the contagion psychosis that has penalized, but not bent, our Horeca world. Especially the one made in China. An exhortation made together with the chefs of Euro-Toques that on 12 February turned into a collective embrace, not only symbolic. In collaboration with the association led by Enrico Derflingher, an evening “Antivirus” was organized at the Jubin restaurant in Milan, in the heart of a Chinatown still illuminated and decorated by lanterns of the “New Topo”. In addition to the cooks have joined numerous journalists, who with their “social” visibility can do much to break down unfounded fears and try to maintain a climate of civilization.
The director of the Chinese consular office in Milan Lei Caiwas present, who wanted to stress: “We are not alone, we have the institutional solidarity of Lombardy and Milan. We are very appreciative of what our Italian friends are doing. Italy is the country where there is sun and heart.”
In the room, with Enrico Derflingher, president Euro-Toques Italy, many associate cooks and restaurateurs of the Milanese and Lombard area who wanted (on a working day) to make their own emotional contribution. Among the tables, Viviana Varese, Maida Mercuri del pont de Fer, Nicola Ferrelli, Michele Biassoni of the restaurant Iyo, Antonio Lebano, Matteo Scibilia, Chef Alex of Kitchen Society and Antonio Consonni of the Dinner of Painters. They weren’t present at the evening, but the initiative was joined by many other renowned chefs such as Franco Aliberti, Enrico Bartolini, Cristian Benvenuto, Eugenio Boer, Alessandro Borghese, Fabrizio Cadei, Roberto Carcangiu (President Apci), Chicco Cerea, Carlo Cracco, Vincenzo Donatiello, Bernard Fournier, Ernst Knam, Filippo La Mantia, Stefano Masanti, Sergio Mei, Davide Oldani, Diego Rossi, Nadia
