The program is also enriched with the Italian Trade Agency’s initiatives with a video created with support of Chef Ritu Dalmia of the DIVA Restaurant on the preparation of “Gnocchi alla Sorrentina”. It has also prepared a short collection of recipes for the preparation of typical Italian dishes and a Guide for the import of agri-food products into India. In addition to launching a competition to select 20 people who will cook live recipes with Ritu Dalmia, the Italian Cultural Institute will create dishes from "Science in the Kitchen and the Art of Eating Well" to celebrate the figure of Pellegrino Artusi.
