Cooking is the principal protagonist of the “food” itinerary of “Expo City Events”, an exciting combination of good food and lifestyle. In fact, Milan is full of places committed to great food, with a vast range of opportunities also for those who want to learn about gastronomy. for enthusiasts and aspiring gourmets, “Expo City Events”, in collaboration with Philips, has organised courses at the Sale&Pepe New Cookery School. Based on the experience of the cooking magazine of the same name, the school, located inside Ca’puccino in Piazza Diaz 5, offer a varied programme of events featuring leading chefs with courses for adults as well as children: a place where tastes meet, talents can express themselves and a passion for cooking can be shared.

“Expo City Events” will also cover fashion with a collection of events focusing on Fashion & Beauty. There is, as everyone knows, and indissoluble link between Milan and fashion that has created an industry that around the world represents the very best of Milanese business. Among the events on the programme, in June, “Icon Night”, an evening organised by the magazine Icon in collaboration with Philips.
