Chef Danny Petrosino, the only American chef invited at the 2018 Academic Tables of the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Pollenza Italy
In addition to the five UNISG chefs, each year around 25 chefs from all over the world come to the Pollenzo university dining hall to serve students dishes that respect the principles of “good, clean and fair”. With Academic Tables, the lunch break is no longer just a time for eating, but also a training opportunity based on concepts of quality and environmental, social and economic sustainability.
This is now the sixth year of the Academic Tables project. Each year around 25 Italian and international chefs are invited to join the in-house team in order to prepare their emblematic dishes, share their experiences and meet with the university’s students.
As in the past, this year’s program includes a number of chefs from Italy and beyond with Michelin stars, as well as representatives of osterias awarded with the Snail in the Slow Food Osteria Guide.
There will be eight countries represented in the kitchen in 2018: Italy, Spain (Catalonia), France, Belgium, Denmark, Iceland, the United States and Argentina.
