On Friday the 13th November from 6pm Rossopomodoro Chelsea are hosting a pizza masterclass and dinner with the first ever female, World Pizza Champion Teresa Iorio.
The event is being held to celebrate that UNESCO have approved the bid to add Neapolitan pizza to their Heritage List. The former Italian Minister and Italian counsel will be available to speak to the press as well as Franco Manna (founder of Rossopomodoro) and the current and previous Champion and Rossopomodoro Pizzaiuoli Davide Civitiello.
About Teresa Iorio
An authentic Neapolitan woman Teresa comes from the big Iorio family (she is number 19 out of 20 children!) who all have a great passion for pizza. She followed the steps of her father Ernesto who opened his first pizzeria in Naples at the end of the ‘50s to learn the art of Neapolitan pizza to become one of the best Neapolitan pizzaiuoli in a male dominated profession. Teresa has been the first woman to win the prestigious Caputo Cup this September in Napoli. We are proud that she joins Rossopomodoro to support the UNESCO bid.

6.30pm: Live demonstration and tasting of pizzas from World Pizza Champion Teresa Iorio.

Location: Rossopomodoro Chelsea, 214 Fulham Road, SW10 9NB, 020 7352 7677
