Italy – a country synonymous with summer, sunshine, enjoyment and the good life, or ‘la dolce vita’. And our love of this southern European country is often linked to culinary pleasures. Whether in the kitchen, on the patio or in your garden: reminiscing of a past trip or anticipating the next Italian holiday will make pizza, pasta and gelato taste even more delicious. Before the yearning for “Bella Italia” becomes too strong, you can recreate that authentic Italian feeling in your own home.
relaxed pizza party or an Italian style dinner
A pizza party with good friends is an ideal way to savour “la dolce vita”. Pizzas can be topped with fresh ingredients according to individual tastes and then enjoyed together. With their 32 cm diameter, the gourmet plates from the Manufacture Rock and NewMoon collections are ideal for serving pizzas quickly and in style. And as each slice is eaten, the plates impress guests even more: because below the pizza is either the distinctive Manufacture textured black slate effect or the crescent moon shape of the otherwise simple white NewMoon plate.
As an elegant alternative to a pizza evening, you can also create a typical Italian meal consisting of several courses. An aperitif accompanied by fresh antipasti sets the ideal atmosphere at the start of the evening. This is followed by pasta or risotto, then meat with vegetables or a crispy salad. For dessert, there is tiramisu or ice cream and, to round off the meal in true Italian style, a caffè or an espresso.
The perfect companions for Aperol and wine
Drinks to ideally complement the food are an important part of a stylish meal. While an Aperol spritz is ideal as a pre-dinner drink with antipasti, a sparkling white wine or an Italian red wine are good choices to accompany the main courses. Villeroy & Boch offers a wide selection of beautiful glasses in special shapes, colours or with extra-thin sides. To ensure maximum enjoyment and transport your guests on a multi-sensory trip to Italy.
