2022, September 15th I Love Italian Food and the Federation of Italian Chefs in UK are pleased to announce a special edition of The Italian Show entirely dedicated to the world of pizza. 

On 11th October 2022 in London’s Porchester Hall, The Italian Show – Pizza Edition will be held, a vertical day on pizza aimed at pizza professionals in the UK market. 

Three objectives of the project: educating, tasting, promoting. Within the elegant setting of Porchester Hall (Porchester Road, Bayswater, London W2 5HS) visitors to the event will be able to discover all the secrets of pizza thanks to the Pizza Academy. The area will host pizza-themed classes throughout the day, led by the technical experts of the Scuola Italiana Pizzaioli, a reference point for all those who want to take up the profession of pizza maker and which has recently opened a branch in London as well. 

The Italian Show – Pizza Edition will also host a Tasting Lounge where the chefs of the Federazione Italiana Cuochi – UK Delegation will talk about and taste Italian excellence, under the guidance of President Enzo Oliveri, The Sicilian Chef, and masterclasses on Italian wines. Networking opportunities with Italian producers will not be lacking in the Walkaround Tasting Area, where the initiative’s F&B partners will be exhibiting and having Italian products tasted. 

Last but not least, this special edition of The Italian Show in London will also host the 33rd PAPA Awards Competitions, organised by The Pizza, Pasta and Italian Food Association. Professionals from the world of pizza and pasta in the UK will compete in the many categories.

“After the success of last May’s edition of The Italian Show, we decided to expand the format with this special edition, dedicating an entire day to the world of pizza, which is one of the symbols that most represents Italy and our cuisine in the world. With this appointment we want to bring together the main experts in the world of pizza in London and offer an opportunity to those working in the sector in the area who want to inform themselves, train themselves, and also get in touch with the main producers in the sector,’ declares Alessandro Schiatti, CEO and co-founder of I Love Italian Food.
