The activities of the second year of the campaign (April 2018 – March 2019), started with a blogger tour in Modena, home of the original Balsamic Vinegar, with 7 of the most important American influencers. In May, the food bloggers went to Italy to discover the secrets and traditions of the product and production, with the goal of turning themselves into ambassadors of the authentic Balsamic Vinegar in the States.

Next, in June, the campaign Balsamic Vinegar of Modena flew to New York City to attend the Fancy Food Show, the number-one food fair on the East Coast. During which the Consortium also took part, for the second consecutive year, in the 100X100 Italian Gala, an exclusive event organized at the Scavolini Soho Gallery by I Love Italian Food, in collaboration with the Italian Chef Association New York. During this wonderful Gala, the Balsamic Vinegar of Modena was a delicious protagonist in the dinner menu.

After, the Consortium started two important collaborations: one with the prestigious Culinary Institute of America (CIA) and the other with the International Culinary Education (ICE).

With the Culinary Institute of America (CIA), the Consortium produced a documentary video series about the original Balsamic Vinegar, with the participation of Massimo Bottura, chef patron of the two-time best restaurant in the world Osteria Francescana. A troupe from the CIA was hosted in Modena at the end of September, to shoot these 10 educational videos, that explain everything about the Balsamic Vinegar, available on on social networks. The series also takes part in The CIA’s Worlds of Flavor programming and the World Culinary Arts series, winner of two James Beard Awards and a Telly Award for best documentary film series.

The Consortium also created a collaboration with the Institute of Culinary Education (ICE), one of the largest and most diverse culinary schools in the world. The chefs of the Institute were immediately called upon to incorporate the “Black Gold” into research and recipe development, in order to grasp all the astonishing and diverse properties of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. These innovative recipes can be found on all the school’s media channels and website. Furthermore, the Consortium sponsored a special contest that prized three exceptional students with scholarships and a trip to Modena, Italy.  In addition, the Consortium taught the students of ICE New York about the distinct characteristics of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena and how to recognize the authentic and certified product.
