ALLA SCORTICATA 2016

“La Collina dei Piaceri” –the Hill of Pleasures, or otherwise known as “Scorticata”, is one of the top food and wine events of the entire summer on the Adriatic coast.

In fact we have always been keen to take part in this fun festival, which, held over three days in Torriana in the Province of Rimini sees the participation of VIP chefs, pastry chefs, producers and artisans of the food and wine sector.

This year, the founder of the Scorticata, Fasto Fratti, the Patron of the Povero Diavolo, has decided to pay homage to the Pizza in a dedicated area and he has invited us to play an active role at the 2016 Scorticata on the evening of Wednesday 27th July.

We will be testing our “….come a Napoli” Neapolitan style pizza in the innovative “Scugnizzo Napoletano” electric oven produced by IZZO FORNI and so celebrate the popular tradition that pizza represents, especially on this occasion.

Simone Padoan from the “I Tigli” restaurant of San Bonifacio (VR) will be featuring on Thursday 28th July and then our friend Giancarlo Casa from the “Gatta Mangiona” in Rome will be present on Friday 29th July.

So, if you are lucky enough to be on holiday in this area or if you live nearby you can’t miss this event: drive up to Torriana and we’ll celebrate together.

DIEVOLE

The splendid backdrop of Dievole in the famous “Chianti Classico” territory, was the location of the first Tuscan book launch of “LA BUONA PIZZA”, by Luciana Squadrilli and Tania Mauri, with photography by Alessandra Farinelli and where ‘O Fiore Mio features as one of the Pizza Restaurants of the book.

At sunset of 19th July, the guests enjoyed an “aperitif” accompanied by our pizzas baked in the estate’s old wood-fired oven, which dates back to 1705. Then there were Mimmo La Vecchia’s mozzarellas from the Casolare Cheese Dairy, Corbara’s cherry tomatoes and Oil and Wine produced at the actual Dievole Estate.

This was the first stop of a “giro d’Italia” book-launch tour of Italy, where the stories of the ingredients, the territories and the pizza makers featured in the book will be told.

We will keep you up to date on the book-launch event dedicated to Emilia Romagna.

Have a great summer reading “LA BUONA PIZZA”.

‘O fiore mio and the Pizzeria Spaccio

On Tuesday evening, 24th May, Matteo Tambini and Davide Fiorentini’s creativity featured at an evening dedicated to “four pizzas” at the Pizzeria of San Patrignano.

This was an event not to be missed at SP.accio, the pizzeria of the San Patrignano community, and which on the evening of the 24th May hosted the team from ‘O Fiore Mio, the prestigious gourmet pizzeria of Faenza. The highlight of the evening was the endless number of pizza varieties.

The pizza dough was made with stone ground flour, and were made to order with various types of selected Italian flours and rigorously using sour dough, which guaranteed a truly easy to digest pizza. The staff of the two pizzerias also created four special recipes.

We are among the best Pizzerias in the World

It’s not us who is claiming this, but a heavyweight guide called “WHERE TO EAT PIZZA” published by Phaidon. It is a detailed collection of the best places to go when your desire for pizza, the real pizza, is insatiable, no matter where you are in the world, and you need to eat. The texts have been complied by Daniel Young, a food critic from New York who has moved to London, and his guide is set to become a must-buy at all bookshops and online.

AUTUMN EVENINGS: STORIES OF PIZZA

As has now become a traditional event, it’s time for the three “Autumn Evenings” for foodies! The common denominator for this year’s evenings will be life stories and anecdotes that this extraordinary dish evokes.

Here’s the complete program.

 

WEDNESDAY 28th OCTOBER 2015 – Faenza
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ‘ O FIORE MIO !
A STORY FROM NAPLES:
The story of the “PIZZERIA DA ATTILIO ALLA PIGNASECCA” told by ANTONIO MATTOZZI (Neapolitan writer and historian)
The Neapolitan pizza is the mum of all pizzas. Right from the second half of the 19th century, this
dish that is symbolic of Italian identity all over the world, came to life in Naples. Pizza was made at home and in small shops. It was a street food, folded in half like a book, and it must have cost very little because it was a part of the people’s staple diet. Attilio Bachetti is a son and grandson of this “art” and he is a great interpreter of this fantastic Neapolitan tradition.
On the other hand, Antonio Mattozzi is considered the historical memory of Neapolitan pizza. He is the author of a book concerning pizza called “Una storia napoletana: pizzerie e pizzaiuoli napoletani tra Sette e Ottocento” (A Neapolitan story: Neapolitan pizza restaurants and pizza cooks between the 18th and 19th centuries), published by Slow Food Editore and which is also going to be published in England.
The dinner will be accompanied by selection of wines by Les Caves des Pyrene, well known wine
distributor which selects small wineries capable of enhancing the character of the territories from
where the wines have originated. To conclude there will be a mountain of zabaione profiteroles.

OUR AUTUMN NOVELTIES

We all know that summer does not last forever. However, apart from the days getting shorter, autumn still holds great emotions for us, especially when it comes to our palate.

From 22nd September, as we are used to doing, we will be changing our menus.Amongst the many novelties: a new and original dough made with the Gentil Rosso Grain produced by the San Biagio Vecchio Farm, then there is the new Pizza dello Chef, created by the sous chef of the Osteria Francescana of Modena, Takahiko Kondo, then an interesting new range of wines from Les Caves des Pyrenee, which will be presented at the new evenings of Autumn 2015 in Faenza.

Come and see us soon in Faenza and in Bologna.

THE “INCHIOSTRI” – INKS EXHIBITION BY ENRICO VERSARI

The artist Enrico Versari has come to Bologna with his engravings and etchings, and he is now exhibiting at ‘O Fiore Mio – Pizze di Strada (piazza Malpighi 8d/e). The exhibit “Inchiostri” curated by Antonella Ravagli , officially opened on 29th May, and will stay on show until 7th July.

 

Enrico Versari (enricoversari.com) takes visitors on a journey into the discovery of ink and all of its possible applications: from engravings to etchings, as well as xylography , right up to that so-called “black manner” with which this artist from Faenza achieves a practically photographic effect. The markings and the drawings are Versari’s artistic initials. He designs “stages” upon which the composition of the objects are just like actors playing on stage, while for the “backdrops” he uses pages torn from telephone books, old dictionaries or pages of newspapers, which have been recovered and assembled using the collage technique.

 

The travelling exhibit “Inchiostri” will conclude its first leg in Bologna on 7th July, to then move on to ‘O Fiore Mio in Faenza on 20th July, where it will be possible to view until the 3rd September.
