CasaFacile, the monthly that helps you to create your own style of furnishing edited by Giusi Silighini and Sale&Pepe, the magazine for food lovers and those looking for exclusive gastronomic ideas edited by Laura Maragliano, will present, at Magna Pars in Via Tortona in Milan, the Mondadori Food&Design Experience, a unique event that combines the world of cooking and the world of interiors, realized under the patronage of Milan Expo 2015.

From Wednesday 9 April to Sunday 13 April, at the heart of the week of the Milan Design Week, the two Mondadori titles will stage a rich calendar of events dedicated to food and design: five days of completely free entertainment, activities, décor laboratories and e showcooking for those who want to live cooking as a passion to be shared and those who want ideas and advice for the best ways to furnish their homes.

CasaFacile and Sale&Pepe will open the doors to their “home” to all visitors in a welcoming and elegant location furnished by by the Gruppo Euromobil, and recreated for the occasion at the Sala Elisir in the Magna Pars and made up of a living area, bedroom, children’s room, craft room and kitchen, that will become the theatre of a range of initiatives.

Everyday, from 12 to 8 pm (on Sunday until 6 pm), the public is invited to watch tasty showcooking displays and to participate in styling laboratories.

You can get an opinion of an architect or handy tips about decorating solutions, thanks to the advice of experts from CasaFacile who will assist members of the public with creative and rapid ideas to improve your home.

Every evening the editor of CasaFacile, Giusi Silighini, along with the magazine’s staff and experts, will meet the public to offer useful and amusing advice on a range of issues: from energy saving to sound-proofing, advice on how to create the perfect balcony to the ideal photos for the world of social media.

The chefs of Sale&Pepe will be present to surprise in an area entirely dedicated to cooking, with innovative recipes and original showcooking demonstrations.

At the end of each day, the editor, Laura Maragliano, together with authors and famous chefs will talk to the public; including, the ‘king of chocolate’ Ernst Knam who will present one of his special creations, Paola Maugeri the TV presenter and journalist, an enthusiastic expert in vegan cooking, from Bologna Alessandra Spisni who will explain how to make excellent pastry and pasta and, finally, Mauro Fermariello who will enthuse the visitors to the Mondadori Food& Design Experience with his wine stories.

Charity initiative
The Mondadori Food&Design Experience will also welcome into its “home” an important charity initiative, the CasAmica: by buying the chocolate eggs made available by CasAmica, visitors can contribute to supporting the association that provides hospitality to the sick and their families.
