ABOUT THIS EVENT
Food & Drink
The acclaimed International Chefs Forum, Identità Golose, returns to Eataly Chicago for its eighth U.S. edition this fall. In this unique pizza-focused master class, you will enjoy two pizza dishes created by Italian chefs Federico Della Vecchia, Vittorio and Saverio Borgia of Bioesseri in Milano and American chef Sarah Minnick of Lovely Fifty Fifty in Portland, Oregon. As they work their magic, you will enjoy each dish — prepared and plated before your eyes! — served with complementary wine pairings.
Every year, Identità Golose brings together some of the most notable chefs and most celebrated culinary personalities for a three-day celebration. Four engaging master classes will invite a handful of epicureans to experience the work of these all-star chefs firsthand, and to be exposed to the latest techniques and trends that define today’s culinary world.
Saverio, Vittorio Borgia & Sarah Minnick
Sicilian brothers Saverio and Vittorio Borgia are pizzaioli (pizza makers) who run two restaurants bearing the same name in two different cities, Bioesserì in Milan and Palermo. At Bioesserì, the brothers rely heavily on high-quality ingredients to fill their menu with dishes that reflect Italy — including pizza Napoletana. When dining, their goal is for you to understand and believe that bio is synonymous with taste, goodness, and health.
Sarah Minnick is the co-owner of Lovely’s Fifty Fifty, a trendy pizza-focused restaurant located in Portland, Oregon. Sarah is a self-taught pizzaiola (pizza maker) who creates “market-to-oven pies” with an extreme focus on seasonal ingredients topping her wood-fired pizzas. Lovely’s Fifty Fifty fosters close relationships with local farmers and producers and buys 100% of the vegetables, cheese, and meat used in their pizzas from them. In 2017, Sarah was awarded the best pizza title at Identità Milano; similarly, it is said that she has "perfected the Portland pizza" and is known as the best pizza maker in Portland.
