IL TAVOLO - FOOD FESTIVAL , il Mercato Lunch

On Saturday, I has the great pleasure together with my hubby to attend one of the events part of the 3rd Edition of the IL TAVOLO Food Festival- Zurich's Table and more precisely Il Mercato Lunch.
The host hotels Baur au Lac, Eden au Lac, Park Hyatt Zürich, Storchen Zürich, The Dolder Grand and The Widder Hotel invited guests to the biggest "tavolata" in Switzerland, where top Swiss and International gastronomy met.
Il Mercato Lunch was held in the heart of the largest market in town, Zürich's wholesale market.
I must say the organization and the setting were absolutely spot on, quite breathtaking to see a table 200 m long!
With fresh fruits and culinary market stalls surrounding the long table it really felt like being inside an Italian market. The atmosphere was just perfect as you could freely move from one host Hotel food station to another and try out a bit of everything the Chefs superbly prepared for the occasion.
The food was all amazing but I would have to give the Park Hyatt's Chef Frank Widmer and his team a special mention as his veal with  Asparagus risotto was so delicious, I had two portions of it!
I really loved the fact that you could talk to the chefs and see the food being prepared in front of you!
It was really a wonderful event, I had so much fun meeting people while enjoying the wonderful food.
