El espacio que actualmente ocupa el Mercat Central de València fue, desde la primera expansión de la ciudad, el emplazamiento habitual de los mercados ambulantes. En 1839, se inaugura, en esta ubicación, un mercado descubierto, el Mercado Nuevo, el germen del actual Mercado Central. Hacia finales del siglo XIX este mercado es claramente insuficiente para la ciudad de Valencia. En 1910, el Ayuntamiento de Valencia elige el proyecto de los arquitectos Alejandro Soler March y Francisco Guardia Vial para la construcción del nuevo mercado. Ambos se habían formado en la Escuela de Arquitectura de Barcelona y habían trabajado en el equipo de colaboradores de Luis Doménech Montaner, arquitecto que se caracterizó por un estilo propio dentro de las líneas del Modernismo. Alfonso XIII protagonizó el acto protocolario con que se iniciaron los derribos. El 24 de octubre de 1910, con una piqueta de plata dio varios golpes en el muro del número 24 de la plaza del Mercado. Finalmente, el 23 de enero de 1928, se inauguró el actual edificio del Mercat Central de València. La espectacularidad del Mercat Central de València es innegable. Se trata de una de las edificaciones más atractivas y visitadas de la ciudad de Valencia. Su arquitectura no rompe la estética de la plaza, donde se integra a la perfección con otros dos importantes monumentos: la Lonja de la Seda y la Iglesia de los Santos Juanes. Es, indudablemente, el edificio más representativo de la Valencia que a principios del siglo XX avanza hacia el progreso tecnológico y mercantil y se siente orgullosa del potencial agrícola de su huerta. Esta apuesta por el progreso y por la producción agrícola se reflejan en de la estructura modernista del mercado y de la ornamentación alegórica que observamos en su interior. Las cúpulas, de hierro, cristal y cerámica (la central, alcanza 30 metros de altura) y las veletas que las coronan - la de la cotorra y la del pez - se integran a una panorámica paisajística de torreones y campanarios eminentemente valenciana. La distribución del interior es racionalista, de manera que los puestos se sitúan a lo largo de una serie de calles rectilíneas atravesadas por dos anchas vías. Se concibió para 959 puestos, destinados en la zona general a tiendas altas cerradas para carnicería, tocinería, ultramarinos y quincalla; tiendas bajas para venta de patatas, legumbres, verduras, frutas y gallina; tiendas altas abiertas para venta de pan, volatería, carne y caza; y, en la pescadería, tiendas altas para venta de salazones y despojos, y tiendas bajas para pescado. Los dos pabellones que flanquean el acceso principal están construidos enteramente en ladrillo visto, con aplicaciones de piedra y de cerámica decorada; mientras que el cuerpo anexionado de Tenencia de Alcaldía sigue la construcción de influencia novecentista y queda rematado por torretas coronadas por pequeñas cúpulas semiesféricas. Ya se han celebrado 100 años desde la colocación de la primera piedra y 90 desde el primer día que se abrió al público. No hay expresión mejor para transmitir lo que es el Mercat Central de València en la actualidad. Un sagrado templo donde los catedráticos de los productos frescos reciben y transmiten la sabiduría de lo más sustancial, nuestra alimentación. La luz mágica que entra desde su cúpula y sus vidrieras, el susurro permanente que acaricia los oídos, la explosión de colores y de aromas, el gusto al final de los sabores clásicos y eternos, mezclados con los más sorprendentes. Un auténtico parque temático de la gastronomía. Como todos los mercados municipales, es también un elemento fundamental vertebrador de la ciudad y sus barrios. Con su actividad comercial, posibilita de manera natural la cohesión y el intercambio social, incluso a nivel intercultural e intergeneracional, de una forma mucho más espontánea y eficiente que cualquier otra iniciativa. En los mercados no solo se compra y se vende, se degusta, se habla de todo y se vive también nuestra historia y nuestra identidad. Como organismo vivo que es, ha necesitado reinventarse continuamente para llegar a este aniversario de su construcción con una excelente salud. Hay que aprovechar las nuevas tecnologías de información y de la comunicación (en las que siempre fuimos pioneros) para ofrecer venta on line, repartos por toda Europa, consignas gratuitas, etc., a la vez que se completa la oferta y los servicios del edificio, mejorando el espacio y ampliando la experiencia de compra con cultura, música, arte, literatura y cocina, mucha cocina.

Domori S.p.A.'s head office is in None, just outside Turin, where the production plant is located. Since its founding in 1997, Domori has been a real revolution for the cocoa world. It was the first ever chocolate company to use only fine cacao, focusing on high quality. The first to produce chocolate with Criollo cacao, the rarest and most valuable ever. The first to control the supply chain right from the plantations in South and Central America and to have its own plantation, allowing it to recover the biodiversity of Criollo cacao in the field. Domori is also the first to rediscover and use an ancient and simple formula for chocolate, using just cocoa paste and sugar. The first to create a 100% pure Criollo bar. And, the first to create a Chocolate Tasting Code for discovering the infinite nuances of aromatic cocoa. Domori is now part of the Polo del Gusto, an Illy Group holding that gathers together all its non-coffee-related businesses. Apart from being a leading company in the production of the finest quality chocolate, Domori has become the Italian distributor of a collection of top-level products: ranging from Dammann Frères teas, to Agrimontana jams, and including fine Mastrojanni wines and Taittinger Champagne. In 2019, the company announced it had signed an agreement to acquire Prestat, one of the best-loved chocolate brands in the UK and supplier to the British Royal Family. The acquisition has provided Prestat with access to the exclusive raw materials used by Domori and to be able to integrate control of the entire value chain in its production, “from plant to truffle”. Owing to its innovative approach, focusing on ongoing research into excellence, Domori’s annual turnover now exceeds €20 m and its products are on sale in Italy and on the main foreign markets. As of 23 July 2020, Domori changed its company name to Domori S.p.A. and decided to become a Benefit Company. As a Benefit Company, the firm intends to work towards goals for the common good and to operate responsibly, sustainably and transparently in relation to people, communities, territories and the environment, cultural and social property and activities, organizations and associations and other stakeholders.
Cremeria Scirocco was born in the spring of 2004 from an idea of Andrea Bandiera. The project took shape during the summer thanks to a trip to Sicily, which brought it closer to the world of slush and Sicilian ice cream. Once in Bologna, the idea materialized more and more until it led to the creation of the Laboratory in via Barelli 1, inaugurated on March 18, 2005. The basic ideas were simple: Tradition, Quality, and Creativity! The idea came after a job crisis: Andrea was a computer scientist for 16 years until, in 2004, he felt the need to change his life, looking for new stimuli and experiences that he could get involved with. And so, he opened the laboratory Cremeria Scirocco. Andrea was always passionate about cooking, especially pastry. He also considered opening a restaurant, but it would have been too demanding. Following his predilection for sweets, he then decided to take the ice cream path, starting - like most Italian ice cream makers - from ready-made and semi-finished bases. He had no experience in the field, and was not sure how to move forward. After a few months, however, he realized that there was nothing artisanal in his work, and so, started studying the chemistry of food, looking for the best raw materials. By placing more and more fresh products in the laboratory, and that, was the turning point. Today, therefore, he only uses quality raw materials, sourced from local, small producers in the area. About 10 years ago, he started making contact with chefs who helped him to grow and develop his skills and knowledge. But above all, the comparison with other chefs allowed him to refine his pairing skills. Andrea has a very satisfied customer base; they are satisfied and often ask him for tailor-made tastes for lunches and dinners. The entire sorbet line is lactose-free, however there are also vegan creams that change in rotation, such as pistachio or hazelnut, made with water or vegetable milks, such as oats. Semifreddi, is made with excellent raw materials, such as tiramisu, with coffee from the Lelli Caffè roaster and self-produced gluten-free sponge cake. His projects for the future include returning to the world of information technology. He has created tablet applications to assist ice-cream makers in their work, with balancing tastes, the best storage ideas, recipe books and many other snippets of advice and ideas.

Dassie Gelato began in a small hamlet not far from Treviso. Gelateria Canzian is well-known throughout the province. It is successfully run by Fabio Dassie. Antonella, who recently returned from Germany, is one of the staff. These two, work side by side. They share a long sense of sacrifice, and a desire for independence, they fell in love, got married and in 1986, Stefano Dassie is born. The fashion for take-away gelato explodes in the 1990s. Fabio and Antonella open numerous kiosks, where they adopt the same recipes and working methods. Stefano grows up in the preparation areas of these gelaterias, always at his parents’ side. He absorbs their passion and values. In 1996, Libya celebrates the anniversary of the Gaddafi regime, Fabio is invited to delight the palates of 54 heads of state. Still in his teens, Stefano leaves for the United States on a study programme. He returns determined to grow the family business and export it. In 2007, he launches the first Chocolate Day: a weekend dedicated to chocolate gelato and its variations in all Dassie shops. In 2008 the family takes over “Il Gelatiere”, the most renowned gelateria in Treviso! These are years of study, research, relationships and continuous challenges. Stefano wins the first place in the Italian Championship of Gelato Makers. A Success consolidated at the European Championship of Gelato, where he wins fourth place. The story continues, focused on encounters and affection. Stefano abandons the idea of moving to the United States and marries Erika, who also collaborates with him professionally. The work started by Fabio and Antonella becomes a structured business, with an international feel.

In 2020 Gambero Rosso awards Dassie the Tre Coni [Three Cones], the highest recognition for excellent, and above all, healthy gelato. Stefano’s desire for the future is to bring Vero Gelato Artigiano to the cities, always with an emphasis on staff training, as taught by Fabio and Antonella, while never compromising on quality. The point of sale Las Palmas, on the island of Gran Canaria, is the first step on a journey. New openings are planned in the Canary Islands and on the Iberian Peninsula.

To make an excellent product it is necessary to work in its transformation in search of the same perfect balance of the starting raw material. The work is done by subtraction not by addition. Mara dei Boschi was established in 2012 in the heart of San Salvario in Turin, overlooking the marketplace in Piazza Madama Cristina. The proximity to the food market and the multi-ethnic influences of the neighbourhood have made the location of this establishment an excellent choice. Mara dei Boschi uses the best quality ingredients to make our very own original gelato to provide mouth-watering tastes and sensations to suit each individual taste. Our most demanding customers are children, and we aim specifically to provide them with a fresh and authentic tasting gelato full of the best ingredients. We also try to bring adults back to their childhood memories and tastes of the past. In the flavour Mara dei Boschi for example, which is the interpretation of the wild strawberry mara des bois, you can find the scent of nature just awakened in the spring, rays of sun that find their way amongst the crowns of the trees, the buzzing sound of bees trying to find one of the summer's fragrances, these and many other sensations that can be found in a corner of a forest. Mara dei Boschi is an experimental workshop of flavours and gelato. The purpose is, through exploration and through the laboratory, to transfer the taste of nature in gelato keeping the authentic flavours and, above all, the balance of the components of the raw materials from which the taste originates. Mara dei Boschi is a workgroup of individuals who are full of passion and enthusiasm, and perform continuous research and experimentation, collaborating with whomever does this kind of investigation in various fields. This gives rise to collaborations with manufacturers, chefs and inventors with whom to exchange ideas and knowledge.

La Buchetta Food & Wine's history. Florence always reserves intriguing secrets very hard to interpret. To reveal these secrets we need to fully merge with the city’s history. A history made of habits, passions, beliefs, and vices. Walking the streets of Florence you surely have noticed little holes with doors along the walls of old palaces. These holes, closed by wooden doors, measure about 40 cm and are decorated with the typical florentine style called “bugnato”. These openings were the wine tabernacles. They were invented in 16th century by florentine families who were very skillful merchants and invested their capitals in wine-making, still very popular to this day. These opening linked the wine cellar to the main street. They were supposed to be very small and discreet for the client’s privacy. The winemakers would supply families with the typical “fiasco”, a wicker wine bottle, and they would deliver it to these little doors. Wine-makers followed very strict rules when they delivered the wine: they could only do it at specific times of the day. For instance, they could deliver the wine only within the evening church’s bell-ring and not afterward. The “buchetta” was also used for charity: house owners would leave food or wine for the poor. Today they are used as post boxes, some are used to hold the bells to the apartments with the families name tags, some of them have been hidden. At this present day, we can count 80 of these “buchette”. Ours has been discovered during the last renovation of Bardi Palace which hosts our restaurant. Florence, a city of great sinners and great churches! Sometimes though, you just need some wine and you don’t even have to show your face! Our favourite quotes: “Drink wine and let the water go to the mill” and “Don’t start a journey if your mouth doesn’t taste like wine.” Cheers! La storia di La Buchetta Food & Wine. Firenze riserva sempre intriganti segreti molto difficili da interpretare. Per svelare questi segreti dobbiamo fonderci completamente con la storia della città. Una storia fatta di abitudini, passioni, credenze e vizi. Passeggiando per le strade di Firenze avrete sicuramente notato dei piccoli buchi con le porte lungo le pareti dei palazzi antichi. Questi fori, chiusi da ante in legno, misurano circa 40 cm e sono decorati con il tipico stile fiorentino detto “bugnato”. Queste aperture erano i tabernacoli del vino. Furono inventati nel XVI secolo da famiglie fiorentine che erano abilissimi mercanti e investirono i loro capitali nella vinificazione, ancora oggi molto apprezzata. Queste aperture collegavano la cantina alla via principale. Dovevano essere molto piccoli e discreti per la privacy del cliente. I vignaioli fornivano alle famiglie il tipico “fiasco”, una bottiglia di vino di vimini, e la consegnavano a queste piccole porte. I produttori di vino seguivano regole molto rigide quando consegnavano il vino: potevano farlo solo in determinati momenti della giornata. Ad esempio, potevano consegnare il vino solo all'interno del campanello della chiesa serale e non dopo. La “buchetta” veniva usata anche per beneficenza: i padroni di casa lasciavano cibo o vino ai poveri. Oggi sono usate come cassette della posta, alcune sono usate per tenere le campane degli appartamenti con i cartellini dei nomi delle famiglie, alcune sono state nascoste. Ad oggi se ne contano 80 di queste “buchette”. La nostra è stata scoperta durante l'ultima ristrutturazione di Palazzo Bardi che ospita il nostro ristorante. Firenze, città di grandi peccatori e di grandi chiese! A volte, però, hai solo bisogno di un po' di vino e non devi nemmeno mostrare la tua faccia! Le nostre citazioni preferite: "Bevi vino e lascia che l'acqua vada al mulino" e "Non iniziare un viaggio se la tua bocca non sa di vino". Saluti!

La Trattoria Al Gazzettino a Venezia, è un locale tipico veneziano accogliente e informale. L'atmosfera familiare e la simpatia del personale sono un punto di forza della ristorante, oltre alla qualità e freschezza delle pietanze sia per quanto riguarda i piatti di pesce che per quelli di carne. Fuori dalle "classiche" mete turistiche è però situato in posizione strategica a pochi passi dal Ponte di Rialto e dalla Piazza San Marco. Tutto comincia attorno all'anno 1952 quando Maria e Giuseppe Ongaro rilevano il locale da Giovanni Ancelotto, trasformandolo in una piccola osteria. Il nome "AI Gazzettino" nacque dal fatto che gran parte dei clienti abituali erano dipendenti dell'omonima azienda, che produceva il giornale ed aveva la sede non lontano da qui. La sera, l'osteria diventava punto d'incontro per loro, per i facchini e per i gondolieri. Quest'ultimi, di solito, prendevano "l'ornbretta" (un bicchiere di vino che, allora, costava 15 lire) e 2 o 3 sigarette, perché non potevano permettersi l'acquisto del pacco intero. Altra curiosità dell'epoca è che i gondolieri, a pranzo, usavano i tavoli dell'osteria ma si facevano portare le vivande da mogli o fidanzate perché non potevano permettersi di pagare il conto. Ciò nonostante l'attività andava bene e nel 1958 cominciarono ad arrivare anche i primi turisti. I signori Ongaro decisero, quindi, di acquisire anche l'adiacente Pensione, a tutt'oggi funzionante. Passo dopo passo si susseguirono vari abbellimenti del locale affinchè, nel 1971, l'osteria si trasformò in un piccolo, grazioso ristorante. L'impegno e la dedizione della famiglia Ongaro furono premiati, nel 1984, dalla guida Ivlichelin che 1 mise "Al Gazzettino" al secondo posto tra i locali veneziani, infine, nel 1986, alla fine di una lunga carriera professionale e densa di soddisfazioni, gli Ongaro decisero di cedere entrambe le attività ai fratelli Mario e Walter Lazzari. Avvicinandoci al presente, arriviamo a conoscere gli attuali gestori del Ristorante: Margherita, Ridha Bennefla ed il loro, amatissimo, figlio Kabir. Ridha, un signore tunisino molto gentile ed attento ai dettagli, dopo una lunga esperienza professionale (15 anni) nel rinomato "Harry's Bar", accanto al Dr. Arrigo Cipriani, e dopo altri 5 anni in un altro storico locale veneziano, "l'Antico Pignolo", decide che è il momento di avviare una sua attività. Insieme a sua moglie Margherita (una signora veneziana, bravissima cuoca). Decidono quindi dì acquisire "Al Gazzettino" che riapre a nuova gestione il 05 giugno 2009. Il locale è ora dedicato al loro figlio Kabir (un ragazzino dolce, estroverso e vivace che decora tutto l'interno con i suoi allegri disegni), e anche all'amore che unisce Ridha e Margherita e che ha ispirato la fusione dei due nomi: Margheridha. The Trattoria Al Gazzettino in Venice, is a welcoming and informal typical Venetian restaurant. The family atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff are a strong point of the restaurant, in addition to the quality and freshness of the dishes both in terms of fish and meat dishes. Outside the "classic" tourist destinations, however, it is strategically located a few steps from the Rialto Bridge and Piazza San Marco. It all begins around the year 1952 when Maria and Giuseppe Ongaro detect the local from Giovanni Ancelotti, turning it into a small inn. The name "AL Gazzettino" was born from the fact that most of the regulars were employed by the homonymous company, which produced the paper and had the place not far from here. At night, the tavern became a meeting place for them, for the porters and the gondoliers. The latter usually took "eye shadow" (a glass of wine, then, it cost 15 lire) and 2 or 3 cigarettes, because they could not afford to purchase the entire parcel. Another curiosity is that the gondoliers of the time, at lunch, used the tables of the tavern, but it did bring the food to be wives or girlfriends because they could not a afford to pay the bill. Nevertheless, the activity was good and in 1958 began to arrive the first tourists. Mr. and Mrs. Ongaro decided, therefore, to also purchase the adjacent board, still working. Step by step he followed various enibellishments of the premises until, in 1971 the inn became a small chaming restaurant. The commitment and dedication of the family Ongaro were rewarded in 1984 by Michelin who put "Al Gazzettino" to second place among the local Venetians, finally, in 1986, at the end of a long and worthy career satisfaction, the Ongaro decided to sell both businesses to the brothels Walter and Mario Lazzarii. As we approach this, we come to know the current management of the Restaurant: Margaret, and their Bennefla Ridha, beloved son Kabir. Ridha, a Tunisian man very kind and attentive to details, after a long professional experience (15 years) al the famous Harry's Bar", next to Dr. Arrigo Cipriani, and after another 5 years in another local historian of Venice, the "Fonner Pigiolo", decides it's time to start a business. With his wife, Margaret a Vienetian Lady, (very good cook) decided to acquire "THE GAZZETTINO" that opens in new managetnent June 5 2009. The restaurant is now devoded to their son Kabir (a sweet boy outgoing and lively decorating the interior with his lively drawing), it is also dedicated to the love that unites Ridha and Margarita and has inspiird the fusion of two names: Margheridha.
La Maremmana nasce nel 2013 da un’idea di Guido Pallini. Dopo aver lavorato a Londra, in una banca di investimento giapponese, decide di tornare nella sua terra e rilanciare l’azienda di famiglia che fino ad allora produceva solo latte, espandendola nella produzione di formaggi. Ciò che è iniziato come un desiderio di valorizzare l’azienda agricola di famiglia e il nostro territorio, è cresciuto in un progetto di filiera integrata e sostenibile, fino a diventare La Maremmana, marchio che mira a portare i nostri formaggi di bufala nel mondo. Nei nostri terreni, coltiviamo cereali e foraggi per alimentare i nostri animali; alleviamo bufale in ampi spazi all’aperto; gestiamo la produzione del loro latte in una stalla di ultima generazione; e alleviamo vacche di razza maremmana allo stato brado, preservando questa specie autoctona, per una produzione limitata di carne; Nel nostro caseificio lavoriamo il latte di bufala, esclusivamente aziendale, per ottenere formaggi di alta qualità. Ci occupiamo anche della vendita dei nostri prodotti sia direttamente, nei nostri punti vendita, che tramite distribuzione a negozi e ristoranti. Infine, produciamo energia rinnovabile dagli scarti agricoli e riutilizziamo il residuo del processo come fertilizzante organico. Coltiviamo la terra in modo responsabile, alleviamo i nostri animali con la massima attenzione al loro benessere, trasformiamo con cura il latte delle nostre bufale in una varietà di formaggi, e produciamo energia rinnovabile nel nostro impianto di biogas. La nostra filosofia si basa sul rispetto degli animali e dei cicli della natura. Ci riteniamo responsabili dei nostri standard etici e ambientali e siamo lieti di potervi mostrare quello che facciamo.
