Bra’s, the Bra Sausage Festival: three starred chefs celebrate excellence

Three great starred chefs from Langa and Roero celebrate Bra Sausage paired with local specialties: from 6th to 8th December 2019 at the Movicentro in the city of the Zizzola, “Bra’s – the Bra Sausage festival” is staged, preceded by an exclusive starred  “six hands”  dinner scheduled for Thursday 5th.

The Michelin starred chefs: Massimo Camia (restaurant “Massimo Camia” – La Morra), Maurilio Garola (“La Ciau del Tornavento”- Neive) and Davide Palluda (“All’Enoteca” – Canale) will interpret the famous Salsiccia di Bra, produced with veal meat only, expertly produced by the butchers associated with the Consortium for the Protection and Enhancement of this historic gastronomic heritage.

For three days, the Michelin-starred chefs Camia, Garola and Palluda will cook live at the Movicentro, set up with a giant open kitchen, nine dishes designed for the event.

The absolute protagonist will be clearly the Bra Sausage, combined – with the creativity and refinement of the three out of class Italian cuisine – with local specialties: rice, vegetables from the local vegetable gardens, bread and PDO Bra cheese.

Author’s recipes for everyone, which can be enjoyed for 12 euros.

This is the menu of the three gourmet days of Bra’s:

  • Friday 6th December (6pm-11pm): golden stuffed anchovies with vegetables from the vegetable gardens of Bra prepared by Davide Palluda, Bra sausage burger and baked red potatoes by Massimo Camia, risotto with peppers from the vegetable gardens, olive oil bagna cauda and bocconcini of Bra sausage cooked by Maurilio Garola.
