For years now, Identità Naturali has been the space dedicated by Identità Golose to so-called natural cuisine: vegetarian, vegan, raw diet. That is to say to the trends that are changing our way of eating, both for health and ethical reasons, inducing us to make more aware and sustainable choices.
Until a few years ago – and today too, in the eyes of many, though they are completely wrong – these themes were inevitably matched with a slightly penitential diet, rich in benefits yet poor in taste. In other words, they recalled diets and sacrifices, instead of light delicacies and digestible pleasures.
The change in opinions is also thanks to people such as Daniela Cicioni. A landscape architect from Como, in love with nature and cuisine, since 2007 she has turned cooking (in fact sometimes even less, as she’s a raw diet cook, on top of being a vegan) into her profession. She graduated as a “natural cook” at La Sana Gola; until 2012 she was the chef at Centro Botanico in Milan. Today she’s a consultant, a freelance cook and a vegan and raw diet cuisine teacher.
Fine dining at Expo 2015 goes under the brand of Identità Golose thanks to Identità Expo, the event – created in collaboration with S. Pellegrino – which for six months will summon great Italian and international chefs to Milan for a unique, extremely elegant temporary restaurant. There will also be lessons, cooking shows, meetings, demonstrations... All this animating a rich programme of events (soon online), the result of the organisational effort and prestige of Identità Golose.
