Salone del Gusto!

Salone del Gusto, Terra Madre 2010

The Italian Market includes food from every region of Italy.

Coinciding with Terra Madre, Salone del Gusto is a fantastic food fair offering international and Italian food and drink to taste and purchase. Organic and locals foods in abundance.The Salone is open until 11:00PM, and for the past two evenings, I’ve eaten my dinner here. I’ve sampled delicious cheeses, Limoncello, cookies infused with saffron, handmade lorighittas in tomato sauce from Sardegna, lardo, gelato, oysters from Holland and the famous Barolo of Piedmont. Qui, ho mangiato bene!*
(Here, I have eaten well!)
