Taste of Cape Town is the must-attend event on every foodie’s social calendar. We Italians are some of the biggest food-lovers out there, so naturally, we were there to represent Italy’s favourite cheese.

Over 10 000 hungry guests arrived at Green Point Cricket Club where they were invited to join the Galbani table. In this bustling al fresco setting, we shared food the way the Italians do. Under the guidance of Italian chef Lapo Magni, guests gathered around the Galbani table to create their own Italian feast using the delicious and versatile Galbani fresh Mozzarella and Galbani Mascarpone.

First on the menu was a Galbani Mozzarella, Parma Ham and fig tart, topped with wild rocket and generous lashings of balsamic glaze. This delicious tart is easy to recreate at your own table at home and is always sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Chef Lapo, famous for his signature risotto dishes, then delighted the guests with a Galbani Mascarpone pea risotto, with a crispy pancetta topping to complement the creamy dish. For the grand finale, we shared a Galbani Mascarpone gelato with lemon zest and crumble – so delicious it had the crowds lining up for more!
