The town of Rosignano Marittimo, 12 miles south of Livorno, has organized a food event which will last a month and will be hosted in turn in its seven hamlets. “Mangia in Giro”, Eating Around, is a travelling food and wine experience certainly not to be missed if you’re travelling along the Tuscan coast from April 24 to May 24.
Each event will have a specific theme and the dishes will be prepared accordingly. The first gourmet appointment is the second edition of the Foodies Festival in Castiglioncello and will be held on April 24th. Famous chefs are participating to help local cooks to make the best of local products.
On May 2nd and 3rd it will be the turn of Rosignano Solvay with “Cacciucco senza trucco”, that is the famous fish stew ‘without tricks’. Then comes Rosignano Marittimo on May 9-10th with “Non si frigge mica l’acqua”, ‘water can’t be fried’.
‘The frog prince’, “Il principe Ranocchio”, will be at Vada on May 16-17 while the grand finale is up on the hills between Nibbiaia, Castelnuovo and Gabbro with the May cheese event “Maggio Formaggio”.
Furthermore, each event will be hosting various activities such as cooking lessons, food and wine debates, cooking shows, and local food product fairs. Another initiative will be the collaboration between the locals and the main food and wine magazines as well as food bloggers in the attempt to spread the typical recipes of this region.
This festival of taste is an opportunity not to be missed and a great occasion to stop on the Tuscan Coast and enjoy some very beautiful sights.
