“Over the years Sale&Pepe has tread carefully across the evolution in Italian cooking and followed the changes in the use of ingredients, quantities and preparation and interpreted innovations and trends with recipes with the reach of everyone that are never complicated or banal and with photographs that make them surprising,” said Laura Maragliano, editor of Sale&Pepe. “This long experience is today translated into two books of which I am particularly proud and through which e invite readers to taste different dishes, discover the incredible variety of products that we have and the generosity of our land.”

The bible of vegan recipes offers over 450 recipes to discover the joys of vegan cooking, from appetisers to desserts, with unique dishes and preparations for those with little time; special treats for parties, complete and seasonal recipes, preserves, drinks and smoothies, as well as a glossary of ingredients.

Flavours of Italy. From north south, the best of our cuisine according to Sale&Pepe is a tour of the extraordinary variety of Italian cooking. The ancient wisdom of the culinary arts that, in so many different iterations, criss-crosses the mountains and the plains, the east  and west coasts and, of course, the islands, with a selection of 150 dishes.

In addition to Sale&Pepe also Cucina Moderna is in bookshops this month with Chef in 24 hours.

Sale&Pepe and Focus Junior at the Milan Franchising Fair 2017

From today it is possible to open in franchising a Sale&Pepe cooking school and a Focus Junior Play Lab

Sale&Pepe and Focus Junior will take part at Milan Franchising Fair 2017 (Salone Franchising Milano) which runs from 14 until 15 October. The two Mondadori Group brands will present new franchising formats for the opening across Italy, of cooking schools, with the Sale&Pepe brand and new educational and play centres for children with the Focus Junior brand.

The first Sale & Pepe cooking school opened in 2015 in Milan, the result of the more than 30years’ experience of a magazine that is a point of reference in the food world. Over the years Sale & Pepe has been able to expand its offer, giving different form to its content and becoming a meeting point where a passion for food comes to life. All year round, the cooking school offers a wide selection of courses for adults and children, with ideas also for an international audience, events for individuals and companies, showcooking and themed events.
Thanks to the new franchise offer, it is now possible to open a cooking school in other cities, being able to rely on the strength of the Sale & Pepe brand. There are two formats: the first foresees a fixed location with fully equipped work areas for the chef and workbenches for participants, just as in the original location in Milan. The second is an innovative travelling or itinerant cooking school: a “cooking station” prototype, that can be used to organise courses and events on tour, indoor locations or in public areas.
The project is aimed at anyone with a passion for cooking who wants to turn it into lasting and profitable work. The added value of the model proposed by Sale & Pepe is that it gives to affiliates, in addition to the design and use of the Sale & Pepe brand, also a continuous communication plan in the magazine, on the web site and social networks; as well as professional training courses; a quarterly training plan and the possible involvement of the outlet in activities around the country promoted by the magazine.

At the Milan Franchise Fair it will also be possible to discover the new Play Lab format, launched by Focus Junior, the leading brand for children and teens. The Focus Junior Play Lab foresees the creation of educational and play centres designed for children and teenagers from 3 to 12 years of age, accompanying them in this phase of growth, while satisfying their natural curiosity and having fun while discovering the world in new and smart ways.
At the Focus Junior Play Labs, children and teenagers can spend their time alternating recreational with educational and learning activities, in line with the Focus Junior philosophy. A space that differs from the current market offer by adopting an “edutainment” approach, focusing on activities to stimulate children’s skills, such as science labs, drawing, cooking, digital journalism, and much more.
Spaces can be customized depending on the needs of the franchisee, as they are designed to be completely mobile, easily transportable and equipped with technology such as touchscreens and tablets to render the spaces “Play areas 2.0”.
Like the Sale & Pepe cooking school, the added value of the franchise proposal for this project is to offer affiliates, in addition to the complete set up of the play area, depending on the available space, an annual curriculum developed by Focus Junior, the training of operators and updating sessions with partners, a dedicated communication plan in the magazine, on the web site and social networks, and the possible involvement of the outlet in activities promoted by the brand around the country with technical partners for the development of activities.
