Risotto with Barbera wine is a very simple but tasty and filling recipe from the Basso Monferrato in Piemonte.
Everyone has heard of the 'Mille Miglia' motor race but not many of us know much about it. The first race was held in 1927 and won by Nando Minoja who finished ahead of 54 other vehicles.
We suggest you try this dish on the 11th November every year in honor of San Martino. The date is now, in effect, Vino Novello Day and many related events are staged across the country.
Who makes the best Risotto alla Milanese in Italy? Well now we know thanks to the initiative "GIALLO MILANO" which is a competition to find out.
The event was developed to promote and save the gastronomic traditions of the city of Milan and the territory 'ambrosiana'.
Over 50 restaurants in Milan and the province of Milano participate.
The regional border starts at the coast and is marked by a huge swathe of open land dominated by the Magra Valley where the river pours into the sea. Set against the stark backdrop of the marble mountains of the Apuane Alps its an impressive spot.

The local cuisine of Levanto near the Cinque Terre is a product of a harsh land which has always been difficult to cultivate. Perhaps because of this what is produced is of an intensity and flavour rarely matched.
The flagship product is of course pesto, but look further and you will discover delicious savory pies filled with anchovies, beautiful olive oils as well as fine red and white wines.
But the king of Levanto gastronomy is the little known 'gattafin' or 'finezza della gatta'. Translated from the local dialect that's 'fineness of the Gatta' which still gives absolutely nothing away.
This pasta recipe is a classic of the typical cuisine of the province of Ascoli Piceno, especially in the zones of Amandola and Montefortino in the shadow of the imposing Monti Sibillini.

60g prized white truffle from the Sibillini Mountains, 350g egg tagliatelle, 3 liters chicken stock, 40g butter, salt.
Ascoli Piceno is, of course, famous its fried olives or 'oliva all’ascolana DOP'. Fried olives from AscoliEvery spring the city is transformed, suitably enough, into the capital of mixed fries 'or 'fritto misto'.
For years, La Tuscia in north Lazio has refused to take off as a tourist destination. Many initiatives have come and gone and made little difference to overall visitor numbers, which is certainly no fault of the territory or the history and treasures to see.
