After a busy day in Milan at the Festival by Paolo Marchi, I attended for the first time (previous editions were always on dates impossible for me), can I give reason to Luca Amodeo, that has defined “il paese dei balocchi”. Among chef tourbillon that flit hither and thither, between classes and a stand, the gastrofanatico has definitely go in sollucchero: points all along the various Bao,Cedroni, Cerea, Esposito, Sabin etc. non è cosa per chi ha il cuore debole 😉 … But what is even funnier, According to me, you turn to the stands, observe the patrons, and even more to discover new things.
Aside from my disappointment for not having personally known Paolo Parisi, the man eggs and prosciutto di cinta senese (When I passed by his stand he wasn't there), some nice discovery – in the midst of many known names – I made it:
1. atop the curiosity there is the truffle perlage Tartuflanghe (Costa 16,50 Euro per package, you buy online here), — serificato and truffle juice made of similar form with caviar. Certain, it cool there is no comparison, but it's still a curious product, playful, imaginative and full of flavour…
2. the stone-made dishes
3. the dish made bottle designed by the Chimpel of Val di Fassa
4. the mortadella of trout sampled at the booth of Bardolino. Personally I prefer the traditional mortadella pork fat, But even that proposal by friends on Garda Lake had its funny because.
I have to admit that the fairs are not funny: too many people, you never speak well with someone, all of travel, too many things to follow and above all too much confusion. Ergo, Maybe something I missed. If you tell me that I'm going to taste it directly on site, by producers or by caterers, that seems to me to be always the most pleasant thing to do :).
As soon as I can I upload photos. (9.02.2012 loaded! 😉 ).
