On September 7, the Italian Chef Charity Night event at Forte Belvedere’s spectacular terrace returns. The fifth edition of the event brings together the signature dishes by 14 top Tuscan chefs, with funds raised going towards saving the Ca’ Moro restaurant in Livorno that’s worked in by young people with disabilities, and the Montedomini project by the non-profit organization ‘Il cuore di Firenze’, dedicated to the construction of homes for the elderly in need.
From 8.30pm, renowned Florentine and Tuscan chefs will host a buffet dinner, with dishes by Gaetano Trovato (Arnolfo) Marco Stabile (Ora d’Aria), Filippo Saporito (La Leggenda dei Frati), Antonello Sardi (Le Tre Virtù), Marco Cahssai (Atman at Villa Rospigliosi), Giovanni Luca Di Pirro (COMO Castello del Nero) and Stelios Sakalis (Castello di Spaltenna), along with Andrea Perini (Al 588), Lorenzo Romano (Insolita Trattoria), Kin Cheung (Element), Edoardo Tilli (Podere Belvedere), Paolo Gori (Da Burde), Francesco Preite (Moi, Prato) and Salvo Pellegriti (La Vetreria). Each will be assisted by a student from the Cordon Bleu cooking school in Florence.
Over the course of the evening, guests can also enjoy cantucci from Pane, amore e fantasia, wines by the Chianti Colli Fiorentini Consortium, vegetables by Giotto Fanti Fresh, Ditta Artigianale‘s coffee, and gelato by Sergio Dondoli and Cinzia Otri.
