Italia Vera Festival is the Event Pick of the month in the August Issue of Long Island Woman Magazine. Read more here: http://liwomanonline.com/digitaledition.
Viaggio is not only a magazine, but also a celebration of all things, Italian and otherwise, that we love at the table, not only on the plate and in the glass, but dancing in our fertile minds as we strive for pleasure, happiness and experience.
Mario Batali - "As it stands alone on the page, our title has many meanings. As the 1st Person singular present indicative of the verb viaggiare, it means "I travel". As a noun, it viaggio, it translates to "the trip, the voyage, the journey". There are many types of trips or voyages, such as un viaggio d'affari, a business trip, un viaggio di lavoro, a working trip, un viaggio organizzato, a package trip, and the sweet beginnings implied by un viaggio di nozze" a honeymoon. Well, my intentions, and by ,'my", I mean "our" intentions actually, as I represent myself and my business partner Joe Bastianich as well as our extended family of partners, including Joe's mom, Lidia, and Mark Ladner and Jeff Katz, the Executive Chef and the General Manager respectively of our luxury flagship Del Posto, and all of the other partners we have in all of our restaurants, wineries, books, grocery stores and our prosciuttificio. Our intentions are to cover, uncover and discover the magnificent and tangy feeling of excitement and passion that can be part of all voyages. The discovery, joy, education, information, beauty, awe, history and the delicious potential of every single detail of the poetic "viaggio" that is possible in every breathing moment in the gran viaggio of a well thought out life. But often our voyage will start and finish with a reference point very near home. We may or may not have insider information, but we are ecstatically happy to display and discuss all of it and share it with our friends and family. Merely that you are reading these words implies that you are one of us! We have brought many of the ideas back from our plethora of personal voyages and planted them here in the US, whether ingredient, dish idea, wine pairing thought or pure ideology and table sense. We always carefully examine the nature and birthplace of the ingredients that we love. We will examine the true geo-specificity and provenance of the greatest raw edibles from all of the places on the planet we love. Do not be confused by the Italian language title of the magazine, it is not only things from Italia that pique our interest, but from anywhere and everywhere. Mushrooms from Slovenia or from Ukiah, scallops from the Peconic bay or Nantucket, oil from Toscana or Tasmania, anything we use, we use with great thought and anything and everything may be in our sights. Nothing delicious from anywhere in the world can escape us in our omnivorous quest for the truly tasty and delightful, and yet when we cook it, we will most probably deal with it in the way that Italians do. With simplicity and the love and respect for its place at our table in the restaurants as well as in our homes."
