Carving Prosciutto


Training is becoming more and more popular and in need in the "Retail World". The new Market Trends and the New Millennial Consumer are getting more and more focused on the Food Specialties Market. Their increased spending capabilities; their awareness towards the importance of healthier, less processed and organic products; a increased attention to their diet  and the easier access thanks to the internet to any kind of information regarding nutrition facts and more made the industry shift in a dramatic way towards "Healthier Specialties". The biggest problem is not the access to these products but how to really understand/know them in order to be able to answer the customers questions and how to handle them properly. This issue is common from Mainstream Grocers Company to Boutique Specialty Shops. We can provide hands-on Training Session on Italian and European Imported Products, to allow the store personnel to be confident about these products and not scared about getting questioned and also be able to handle them properly to maximize yield and avoid unnecessary spoilage.


Corporate/Private Events

Nowadays going out for brunch - lunch - dinner can't be just enough...The new trends and Millennial consumers are looking for something more involving, different, educative and interacting. In one word....They want a Food Experience: something to share with their friends personally or on the social media. It's not just about eating is about everything that is around it, from the choice of the ingredients, their history, the techniques used to get the best out of them and the perfect classic pairings, or the most daring ones. A one on one interacting experience where you can be guided to taste some products in a way that you are not used to, or that you never thought before and to be able to ask any kind of questions to truly understand what is really behind the success of a product/dish. We are proud to offer these food experiences specifically build around your own needs and request on a corporate level or just to enjoy something different with your friends & families.
