Patata in BO

The 2010 edition of PATATA in BO will be launched in Bologna, the capital city of the Emilia Romagna Region, with a Gala Dinner held on 21st September. PATATA in BO is an event dedicated to the potato: a typically poor yet essential ingredient with a wide variety of uses. The queen of the event is the variety native from Bologna, recently declared a Protected Denomination of Origin (the only potato in Europe), and Patata in Bo promotes its consumption and the surrounding territory.

Today the potato is a key element of the agriculture of the region Emilia Romagna and the high quality of the product makes Bologna a point of reference for all of Italy. During the week of September 21-27, the potato will be featured on the menus of the best restaurants in the city and province, with an entertainment program based on food and wine culture and with conferences and debates for the potato industry operators.
