E-Masterclass – The Secrets of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar and Its Lands


On January 26th, more than 230 participants joined the online masterclass ‘The Secrets of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar and Its Lands’, a very special culinary event organized by the Italy-America Chamber of Commerce Southeast (IACCSE).

The peculiarity of this interactive event was the guided virtual tour of the Giusti Museum in Modena (Italy), an extraordinary journey through space and time to discover the tradition of balsamic production, its secrets, the land it originated from and the priceless heritage of objects and documents preserved for generations.

Connected from Miami, Chef Andrea Marchesin (Toscana Divino restaurant), led the participants through a culinary experience aimed to discover the different vinegar acidities through a cooking demonstration and live tasting.

A selected audience of food bloggers, local journalists, influencers and tour operators received a food box containing a selection of balsamic vinegars and the ingredients to follow along the chefs’ instructions and cook in real time.

In occasion of this e-masterclass, a special thanks goes to our partners: Consulate General of Italy in Miami, Italian Government Tourist Board (ENIT), Emilia Romagna region, Acetaia Giusti, Caseificio Gennari, Oleificio Guccione, International Loft, and Toscana Divino restaurant.
