TYT - Train your taste is a project born between differents antennae in the north of Italy and the whole event is based about food.
Participants will discover trough cooking classes the Italian tradition around food and Italian eating style.
We want to involve a lot of cuisine experts and visit a Brewery, Farms and Companies during the TSU and many other places where participants can taste the italian gastronomic experience.
Italian cuisine is generally characterized by its simplicity, with many dishes having only two to four main ingredients. Italian cooks rely chiefly on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation. Ingredients and dishes vary by region. Many dishes that were once regional, have proliferated with variations throughout the country.
