“RISOTTO FESTIVAL” AT ISOLA DELLA SCALA.
From: 2013.09.12 To: 2013.10.07
In the village Isola della Scala, 19 kilometres south of Verona, from the 16th of September till the 11th of October the “Festa del Risotto” takes place! This event is about one of the most traditional products of the Italian north east: Rice! In the Venice region, especially south of the Verona province, important humid areas and rivers have enabled the cultivation of the rice, so the “Vialone Nano Veronese” could be nominated, first in Europe and the only one in Italy, “Product with protected designation of origin”. This festival is not only gastronomic; there will be guided visits to the rice fields, theatre events, games markets for kids, concerts and gastronomic competitions. Apart from all of this, you take also take advantage of the “Veronese Rice Route”, and discover the gastronomical, historical and cultural delights of the agrarian world south of Verona. The best rice dish at this festival is the delicate and tasty “Risotto all’Isolana”, with veal, sirloin, pepper, cinnamon, rosemary and of course parmesan cheese… Enjoy! I attended this festival last year and will try to go every year now! Bye bye, Rob
