Culinary Workshop w/Chef Michele Forgione
A Canadian force on the culinary scene, Chef Michele Forgione now owns four restaurants—Impasto, Pizzeria Gema, Chez Tousignant, and the newly opened Vesta—and all are located in the heart of Montreal’s Little Italy. Expansion into consumer goods with his new national brand, Aliments Faita-Forgione, is just a natural progression. Michele will demo Paccheri with Seafood, one of his signature dishes from southern Italy. It’s a pasta dish that savours the flavours of the sea combined with a delicious tomato sauce from Aliments Faita-Forgione.
