In December, the art of pizza-making — specifically Neapolitan pizza — made international headlines, when the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) recognized the Art of Neapolitan Pizzaiolo as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity with inscription 12.com 11.b.17 No. 00722.
To celebrate this recognition, LA, Grow!, an annual community event that focuses on healthy eating and urban agriculture, and L.A. Times Food Bowl are bringing pizza makers from all over the world to the Hollywood Palladium for the pizza fest …A Tutta Pizza! (Pizza full steam ahead!).
This event will showcase over 20 food vendors between pizzerias, restaurants, and pizza trucks, alongside with photo booth, sponsorship booths in the venues parking lot, lobby, and ballroom. During the course of the day, there will be cooking workshops, cooking demos, panel discussions, and a DJ spinning music. Appearances of many special guests including top pizza chefs Enzo Coccia, Nancy Silverton, Zach Pollack, Tony Gemignani, Daniele Uditi, L.A. Times restaurant critic Jonathan Gold and Times Deputy Food Editor Jenn Harris, and producer and host Phil Rosenthal (Somebody Feed Phil, Netflix).
Cooking workshops The Authentic Italian Table Series are curated by the Italy- America Chamber of Commerce West. The Authentic Italian Table highlights the art of Neapolitan pizza as well as the values of the Italian food culture. As part of the greater Extraordinary Italian Taste campaign – a promotional and educational project conceived by the Italian Ministry of Economic Development, in collaboration with Assocamerestero – this event points the spotlight on “the queen of the Italian table”!
