Gusti di frontiera – an international food experience

If you know Friuli Venezia Giulia and you are a food lover you’ve probably heard of “Gusti di Frontiera”. The food fair is at its 16th edition and still manages to attract lots of visitors. The town of Gorizia has been hosting food stands from over 50 countries worldwide. There was also a remarkable choice of fine foods from the region Friuli Venezia Giulia such as prosciutto di San Daniele, malga cheese from Carnia or Zahre beer from Sauris.

I was impressed with the choice and the quality of the food I had.

I really enjoyed trying some “capesante” wget (scallops) in the “Borgo Mare” area near the lovely piazza Cavour and some cevapcici with typical bread from Bosnia in the Balcanic & Slovenian Stand. Last but not least I also had some gnocchi with ragu di carne from Toscana.

Obviously I did not forget to try some ribolla gialla (a great white wine from Friuli), some chianti and an unexpected Kranebe tonic.

I definitely recommend a visit next year, I am pretty sure there will be more exciting events! Make sure you follow the event on Social Media and if you want to know more this is the website.
