Foligno pasta event I primi d’Italia
From September 25 to 28, 2014 there was the Foligno pasta event I Primi d’Italia. An event dedicated to “pasta” and first courses in general. You could taste over 100 new recipes and see chefs working their food art. Interesting!
It has been a while since I visited Foligno. In 2011, I went to the event La Notte Rosa in Foligno, Umbria. It was crowded with people strolling around, children playing and live music until the early hours. An excellent atmosphere.
In Foligno there are quite some shops and nice restaurants. Foligno is well known by the Umbrians, it is close to Montefalco and Bevagna. It is not far from a few apartments we rent, like Il Mulino and A Montefalco apartments. The town is worth a visit for its unexpected monuments and also for some shopping. I think it is the real Umbria, not yet spoiled by lots of tourists.
I met an old friend from Terni @ Central Bar, Piazza della Repubblica. We decided to taste some Umbrian specialties (truffle) and south Italian specialties (from Puglia). Not only pasta dishes, but also rise, polenta, gnocchi and grilled meat! Yummy!
