Iconic Roman restaurant Alfredo alla Scrofa, custodian of the world-famous Italian dish, Fettuccine Alfredo, is celebrating this year’s National Fettuccine Alfredo Day with a charity gala.
February 7th has been designated the annual festival for this renowned pasta recipe, which combines the lightest hand-made egg fettuccine with aged Parmesan Reggiano and the best butter from Piedmont. And this year, Ristorante Alfredo alla Scrofa has decided to go one step beyond the usual festivities to host a charity dinner in aid of a very good cause, the registered charity Every Child is My Child.
Actors, chefs and internet influencers will get together on February 7th for this special event featuring an extraordinary menu, with Fettuccine Alfredo the star dish. Members of the public can also take part in this incredible event, as a limited number of dinner tickets are available to join in the fun.
Every Child Is My Child is a non-profit association created by actress Anna Foglietta in 2017, which brings together actors, singers, musicians, artists and citizens to help children living in situations of great hardship. Through the hashtag #everychildismychild, the charity realises events and charity initiatives to finance projects and support dedicated schools.
‘Fettuccine Alfredo is a pasta dish born out of a gesture of love and, therefore, we thought that contributing to a good cause through a charity dinner was the perfect extension of that act of love,’ said owners of Ristorante Alfredo alla Scrofa, Mario Mozzetti and Veronica Salvatori.
Italian actors and directors of Every Child Is My Child will be present including Max Bruno, Andrea Bosca, Martina Colombari, Paola Cortellesi, Paolo Genovese, Edoardo Leo and Vittoria Puccini. Members of the public can join the evening, sitting down to an incredible menu for a donation of €100 per head. All proceeds from the dinner will be donated to the non-profit organisation. Parmigiano Reggiano will be the main sponsor of this mouth-watering occasion.
I’ll be supporting this incredible cause, so see you there!
