Dinners at Slow Fish 2023

29 May 2023

At Slow Fish 2023 treat yourself to a good, clean and fair dinner date in Genoa.

This is where members of the Slow Food Cooks’ Alliance and osterias featured in the annual Slow Food guide present the gastronomic culture of their local areas with a mix of creativity and tradition.

Here are the four Dinner Dates at Slow Fish 2023:

June 1 – Pasquale Palamaro: the soul of Ischia

It’s mainly seafood cooking we get from the chef that, for over 12 years, has managed the Michelin-starred Indaco. Pasquale Palamaro lands at Slow Fish, welcomed by the staff of Bistrot Rollipop in Genoa. Carefully-prepared dishes with products from the island of Ischia, from fish to vegetables, many of which come from Pasquale-s own garden, keeping the traditions of Ischia alive, and renewing the immutable bond between the island and its inhabitants.

Among the dishes on offer: spaghetti from Pastificio Di Martino with sea urchin, rice with mussels and lemon, tubetti pasti with flying squid, lentils and friarelli peppers.

June 2 – Peppe Guida: an ode to pasta

The star chef of Antica Osteria Nonna Rosa has transformed the family’s rotisserie-pizzeria into a unique eatery, a landmark for lovers of the local area and its culinary culture. Entirely self-taught, the chef combines the highest cuisine with the simplicity of recipes inspired by tradition, those he learned from his Nonna Rosa. From Vico Equense, he travels up to Genoa to entertain us with his dishes made using local fish, Gragnano pasta and homegrown vegetables from his organic garden. He will be welcomed by the staff of Bistrot Rollipop.

Dishes on offer include: marghertine pasta by Pastificio Di Martino with charred bergamot, garlic and parsely pesto; linguettine pasta by Pastificio Di Martino with flying squid, peas, guanciale and pecorino cheese; anelletti pasta by Pastificio Di Martino with fish broth, squid, lemon, garlic and oil.

June 3 – L’Acciughetta and Franciacorta

The hosts of Quelli dell’Acciughetta di Genova together with Daniele Provezza, chef of the Slow Food Cooks’ Alliance and Dispensa Franciacorta, and Gelatina ice creams, give us a taste of dishes designed to enhance the excellence of two geographically- and geologically-distant territories. There is a creative spark among the group of young chefs that makes for a unique and unmissable dinner, organized by Carlo Catani for Tempi di Recupero at the Acciughetta restaurant.

If you want to try fresh tortelli with Lake Iseo catfish, its garum, tripe and caviar, or stuffed angler fish, this is the dinner for you!

June 3 – Liguria and Abruzzo: a meeting between two seas

From Abruzzo to Liguria: Gennaro D’Ignazio of the Vecchia Marina in Roseto degli Abruzzi is a special guest at Davide Cannavino’s Bistrot Rollipop in Genoa, where the two cooks will cook a special dinner together. Two seas, the Adriatic and the Ligurian, offer high-quality gastronomy with a rich heritage of seafood dishes. Gennaro D’Ignazio and Davide Cannavino are advocates of traditional cooking, made with local fish and the finest ingredients from the coastal agriculture of their regions.

Here you’ll get to taste skate meatballs alla pizzaiola with rosemary croutons, anchovies in a parsley and garlic sauce, and much more.
