THE STORY

Taisuke Hamasaki is the manager of “La Tartarughina” restaurant in Tokyo, famous for its Italian cuisine. He wishes to introduce in his menu the Figo Moro da Caneva, an exclusive speciality of Friuli known to him thanks to Giuliana, a renowned expert in the production of local, agricultural foods. Taisuke has asked her for advice in defining the best suggestions of “pairing” different types of cheese and wine of Friuli. Giuliana has decided to consult and involve the greatest experts of pairing.

 

You also make part of the team of experts! And remember to bring the necessary equipment to take photos to send to Hamasaki. Thus you will help the Figo Moro to conquest Japan with its sweetness.


Giuliana
will help you immerse in the hills of Caneva where this particular fig fruit grows, and which fruit you can immortalise with your photos in the frame of a marvelous local countryside. Later, you will be involved in the patient work of an expert taster at the agricultural company Rive Col De Fer, to decide what is the best “pairing” between the “Figo Moro’ fig fruit and the typical Friulian products, to make it possible suggestions to the famous restaurant manager Taisuke Hamasaki. There will be a feast with local wine, cheese and, of course, the Figo Moro.
