Le piazze dei sapori
Le piazze dei sapori is an itinerant festival of typical Italian food products that each year, for 10 years now, visits the main Italian squares. Every year in Piazza Bra, the main square in my hometown of Verona, is “occupied” by exhibitors coming from all over Italy to sell their regional specialties. In a blink of an eye you have the chance to travel throughout Italy and discover its treasures. Every time I find something new. This year for example I discovered this pecorino cheese aged in walnut leaves. Sensational.
These are Sicilian specialties, pecorino cheese with black peppercorns, Sant’Angelo salami and bread baked in a wood burning oven.
Fresh scamorza cheese
Porchetta, well the end of it….
How could I resist to a panino with porchetta???? It’s impossible!
Wild boar salami from Umbria. It was hard not to buy any of it.
Calabrian sopressata is one of the first things I buy when I arrive in Calabria.
Anchovies with red hot pepper
Lemons from Sorrento, the best lemons to use to prepare lemoncino liquor.
