Chicken Marengo, Napoleon and the winning recipe

Lecture
Lecture in Italian

Tradition has it that Chicken Marengo was invented by Napoleonā€™s cook when, finding himself without access to the supply waggons, he managed to muster up a chicken, some crayfish and a few mushrooms to restore the then First Consul Bonaparte after that difficult and decisive victory. That tasty culinary anecdote will be presented by Anna Alberati, and Gabriele Bagnati will complete the story with a piece composed at the time in celebration of Napoleonā€™s victory at the Battle of Marengo.
