It’s said that no part of a pig is thrown away, that every cut can be used… but can the same be said of fish? What role can fish scraps play in a high-quality dinner?

Marco Visciola, known for his seafood finanziera at Il Marin in Genoa, and Jacopo Ticchi of Trattoria da Lucio in Rimini, a seaside trattoria that aims to use 100% of all their ingredients, without exception, provide a surprising dinner based on so-called fish “scraps”. They’ll show us, through new flavors and consistencies of aged, marinaded and seasoned fish, how truly nothing of the fish is wasted!

Come and discover the creative cuisine of these two young chefs, which works to respect the true value of its ingredients. We’ll discover, together, how the reduction of food waste is important – and potentially creative and fun – even when we look out to sea.
