Concluding Thoughts

As mentioned above, this was one of many #MalpensaStreetFood events that are being organized by Hotel Sheraton Malpensa and Carlo Vischi and the next evening will be on September 6th with Lombardy as a theme. Montemaggio is very happy and honored to have been invited to take part in this initiative and at the same time having the opportunity to get to know bloggers, chefs, and other interesting people. Denis Radzic told me that it was a very interesting and nice evening in a beautiful place. He especially thought it was fruitful and fun to follow the cooking class, being able to taste a re-interpretation of traditional Tuscan dishes, and to enjoy the wine from Cecchi winery as well as the beer from Birrificio San Quirico. Even though Montemaggio is situated in Radda, in the heart of Tuscany, there are always new things to learn and discover.

We want to thank Carlo Vischi and Hotel Sheraton Malpensa, of course, for the invitation to this event, We also want to thank bloggers and food and wine people who attended the evening and shared and promoted us via their social media profiles, such as Alessia Bianchi, Sabrina Fattorini, Anna Cattaneo, Viviana Tombolillo, Edoardo Colombo, and Enrico Benedetti, to only name a few. You are all welcome to visit us at Montemaggio.
