On my second visit to Italy I discovered the local Sagra and I recommend that you try to search these out while traveling.
A sagra is a celebration of earths bounty that highlights one particular food or ingredient. This is a local event and every town, city and village has at least one unique to them. The first sagra I attended was one that I happened to stumble upon when attempting to visit a little village in Umbria. When I arrived, there was an eerie feeling of abandonment. Not a soul in sight. Until I followed the smell and slight din of noise coming from the community building. Inside I found the entire population sitting down at long wooden tables enjoying the food, the wine and each other. Welcome to sagra!

I’m obsessed with feedback, let me know what you think.
Love it?? Pass it on!
