Chefs were provided a virtual presentation from the experts at De Lucas’s on some or their exciting products including Buffalo Asiago cheese, Bella Casara Burratini, and Alberts Leap Taleggio Locale (bon Secret). Each of the cheeses were well received and provided some new stars for the cheese board and taste-buds.
Members and guests viewed a presentation on Rumio and their long tradition of making the finest pasta in Italy and the world. The “Goto Meeting Bag” also included the Rummo Pasta Cookbook, delicious pasta samples, and other promotional materials to help the meeting guests to sample and evaluate. Chefs were able to interact and discuss afterwards at the virtual debriefing following the formal meeting.
