"

Declares Claudio Riva, CEO of Casa Optima "I consider it a perfect combination of two realities that, each in their own sector, is recognized and established reference points: if Gambero Rosso is the largest professional platform in the Gourmet sector, the Optima group, with 'Casa Optima', aims to do the same in all the  Sweet Arts: gelato, pastry, decorations and beverages. Therefore, the idea of combining our know-how with courses organized in Italy and around the world seemed immediately to be a winner. The goal is to reach more and more people and train them with the help of Gambero Rosso experts, who I consider the most authoritative and accredited partner ".
