After the success of the first edition, held in November 2017, this unique event returns to Milan and is hosted in Cascina Merlata, a historic farmhouse dating back to the nineteenth century, with a large courtyard, in via Pier Paolo Pasolini 3, in Milan.
The event, free of charge, includes tasting for the whole day, from 10 to 22, the typical Lombard risotto and a poor and delicious recipe, the risotto with lemon, crescenza and rosemary: in addition to taste the risottos you can receive recipe books, practical box and trays signed by the friendly Leprotto.
Furthermore, the Confraternity of the Pot will devolve part of the proceeds of the event to social housing projects. During afternoon and evening hours there will be no lack of musical entertainment with 4 young bands selected for the deep research and knowledge of Lombard and traditional Milanese musical traditions: the Underwrites, Band Quarter Malnatt and Fatti Così.
