When food is prepared with passion, no matter where are you eating it. It is always good! Street food has become a trend, something fashion and gourmet, that food you had to eat in certain places only. But historically speaking, the street food was made to feed poor people during their working day, it was something tasty, simple, made with poor ingredients and based on tradition. Prepared in simple “osteria” or little, humble places, mainly food shops on the street or stalls (the ancient form of modern foodtrucks).
Cesena, the capital of street food
These foods are the expression of the huge alimentary regional heritage that tells the extraordinary richness of Italian way of eating. Sometimes healthy, most of the times unbelievable tasty and rich, the street food has its own capital, since 2012.
Cesena, a small, nice town in the surroundings of our coast, has become the town to taste the world best expression of street food.
Every year, during the first week end of October, the town becomes a huge, colorful and smelly kitchen where you can find all you can ever imagine: olive all’ascolana, pani ca’ meusa, panelle, tacos and all the other italian and world gourmand delicatessen.
More than a festival, it is a complete culinary experience, a diving into a set of traditions, lifestyle and cooking habits mixed with culture and way of living, where food represents the region it comes from.
Not only food in Cesena
The international street food festival is also a chance to enjoy regional art and culture. Popular music, concerts, shows and much more make the center town a stage to enjoy food and tradition at one time, taking the best with the thousands that come together to taste the richness of Italy and, why not, learn something new.
Thanks to the partnership with Slow Food, this year we had the chance to participate to some focus on Sicily, Abruzzo, Marche, Molise and Tuscany with producers and chef.
Waiting for the next edition! Yummi!
