Regional Italian cuisine triumphs at the 2022 Unconventional Breakfast Awards

Thursday, 10 March 2022 10:47

The winner of the 2022 Unconventional Breakfast Awards, the competition presenting breakfasts for travellers with specific dietary needs or preferences, was the Campania region. The winning recipe was a vegan and gluten-free Torta Caprese and the regional contestants presented it in a fun and engaging storytelling way that harked back to the days of Al Capone.

Lombardy, Piedmont and Apulia also triumphed

Lombardy and Piedmont tied in second place with Lombardy’s Rice Porridge with Saffron and Dried and Dehydrated Fruit, and Piedmont’s IGP Hazelnut Cake. Both regions produced versions suitable for unconventional foodies from vegan to gluten-free and lactose-free as well as foods for athletes and that are halal and kosher-friendly. Apulia placed third with the Carrubotto, a new and unprecedented version of the Pasticciotto using a carob.

Eco-sustainability and the non-waste were important elements

All nine regional teams taking part in the challenge, devised by Concetta D'Emma, were praised by the 13 judges for the originality of their creations. The judges also based the rankings on the history of the products, their connection to the participating regions, their eco-sustainability and the non-waste methods adopted by the contestants. 

Hotel guests become regional ambassadors

“The beauty of this challenge is that it provided a new awareness for those who work in tourism, of the need to go beyond the status quo, involving hotel guests in the process by turning them into  testimonials of the properties as well as regional ambassadors for the local specialities,” added Concetta D’Emma.
