REGION : JULY : FRIULI

 

Bordering Veneto, Slovenia and Austria, this region show its culinary influences from its neighbours and claiming originality in menus not overly fussed with pasta dishes but rather favouring other items such as barley, polenta and an array of dumplings both sweet and savoury also staking a claim in its local strudel.

As its gets cooler and we move to the more mountainous areas we can expect broths, bean soups, stewed meats, fermented vegetables spotted throughout the menu.

Adventurous use of mixed meats including game can all be found cured together in different sausages but Muset being the most well known as well as the Prosciutto San Daniele being a favourite all around Italy for its sweetness.
