A free interpretation of the principles of the menu prepared for us by the restaurant Ruvì, preceded precisely by the tasting of a gin produced on Etna, Volcano Gin, during which the three young producers, Diego Pollicina, Alessandro Malfitana and Stefano Lo Giudice, tell us their story, followed by a tasting of handmade Easter doves by Dolci Ricordi di Sicilia in collaboration with chef Angelo Cinquerughe. A pleasant foray by Piero di Giovanni from the Sicilian Regional Enoteca – Eastern Sicily that will surprise us with good news and the possibility after lunch to go to the Le Contrade dell’Etna event, the restaurant is really close, where for the Slow Food members, there is a 20% discount on the ticket price.

“We like to call ourselves the children of Etna, we were born and raised here. The idea of ​​creating something in and from our land gave us the right impetus to see opportunity where others saw limits. We are lucky to live on an island that knows how to give us infinite resources, it is up to us to know how to make the most of it – says Alessandro Malfitana, one of the producers of Volcano Gin – Ours is a Volcanic Dry Gin, which was born on the slopes of Etna and of which it tells its strong and ethereal character, which wants to be said without the need for words. Being part of this wonderful team set up by Slow Food to usher in a “new spring” is exciting in every way. We believe in the value of collaboration, because only we can move forward, but it is together that we go far. I’m not saying anything else except that we are all waiting for you! “.

A day rich in events, a “new spring” as the organizers have defined it, a moment of conviviality and a return to the open air, a place and a time to get together away from home and have fun with friends, family and with the curiosity to discover new flavors.
