While Molise might be Italy’s youngest and least known region, it is also home to some of Italy’s oldest wine and gastronomic traditions.
Nestled between the Apennines and the Adriatic, the region, like so many in Italy is comprised of many Roman ruins and medieval churches. With less exposure than Tuscany or the tourist rich Veneto, many tourists will begrudgingly admit to knowing very little about Molise.
This plays in its favor though, as many parts of Italy now being overrun by droves of sunseekers and cultural aficionados, being relatively unknown gives the region a truly undiscovered feeling.
When was the last time you had dinner in an Italian restaurant in Canada and you thought you were dining in Italy? That’s exactly how “Ospitalità Italiana Certified”restaurants want you to feel when you visit their fine dining establishments.
Ospitalità Italiana is an official certification from Unioncamere, Italy’s federation of local Chambers of Commerce and Industry, that tells you that the food you are enjoying is unquestionably Italian: products are authentic, ingredients genuine and recipes true to the thousand year history of Italian cuisine.
Canada is home to some leading Italian Chefs. Passionate and innovative, many have refined their skills and advanced their knowledge directly in Italy. In addition, Montréal boasts a fabulous cooking school ITHQ where young aspiring chefs learn Italian technic and Italian traditional recipes from the masters.
So the next time you make reservations for an Italian dinner in a Montreal restaurant, ask if they’ve received the Ospitalità Italiana seal of approval. You will enjoy the true Italian taste.
