World Pasta Day, Tempura, and Enjoy

World Pasta Day - At world level the collective promotion in favor of pasta received a powerful impulsion thanks to the outcome of the World Pasta Congress held in Rome on 25th October 1995.

Delegations from various countries discussed together the theme of the collective promotion in favour of pasta consumption, exchanging their ideas and experiences.

Account was taken and stress was laid on the importance of spreading to the utmost the knowledge of pasta among consumers throughout the world by means of collective initiatives of promotional nature and institutional information campaigns.

The countries with greatest experience in this field made available their know-how for the benefit of those countries which have only recently come to realise the virtues and merits of pasta. The ambitious project of organising on a world-wide basis World Pasta Day on 25th October of each year, for the purpose of recalling and enhancing the first event that saw the gathering of the international pasta community was successfully carried through, thanks to the efforts of the Steering Committee, consisting of representatives of the National Pasta Association (United States), of UN.A.F.P.A. and of the Associations of Venezuela and of Turkey, set up to co-ordinate the organization of this important event.

UN.A.F.P.A. carried out an important task of co-ordination of the initiative and thereafter saw to the collection and spreading of information on the various initiatives undertaken for World Pasta Day in the various countries of the world.

Tempura - I had intended to produce an array of tempura items for dinner this evening. When I realized that today is World Pasta Day, however, I quickly moved thoughts of tempura aside and began planning for pasta tonight. Tempura shall be enjoyed tomorrow.

Laura will join in the production of tempura. We shall produce tempura calamari, prawns, mushrooms, and zucchini.

It shall be a delightful repast.

Enjoy - Relax and enjoy these images and videos!
