News Bites: Little Bits Of News From Stresa


This Sunday, to enjoy with your cappuccino, how about some yummy food-related news 'bites' about chocolate, pumpkins, and a tomato.

I know where I'd like to be from October 30 to November 1! I'd be right here in central Stresa, because that's when the Fiera dal Cioccolata Artigianale, the Exhibition of Chocolate Artisans, will be in town. All around Piazza Cadorna, and also along the Lungolago, you'll be able to find all sorts of chocolates and sweets, from local typical products of the region and other stands where new chocolate creations will be shown and offered. I'm hoping for samples .....

...And look at this tomato plant... On the other side of this wall is the sandy beach at Lido Stresa. Someone on the beach probably ate a tomato and a part fell to the ground, whether deliberately or not, which left some seeds, and they, pretending to be in a tomato field, have managed to grow...

grazie a Andrea Ferri for this photo and words.

Omegna will be celebrating la zucca, the pumpkin, all next weekend on October 22 and 23 in their annual festival. In the Omegna neighborhood of Cusiana, in the piazza, there will be many pumpkin related events, in addition to the hobby and antiques market already there: A sale of pumpkins, food stands preparing more than a dozen featured pumpkin dishes, including the famous in the region pumpkin risotto prepared in Nigogliotta and gorgonzola polenta. In the afternoon cakes and coffee will be served. Folk music bands will be playing. Wine shops will offer tasting events to pair with the pumpkins. And several restaurants in town will offer themed evenings centered around the pumpkin.

Some of my favorite things... I would definitely not mind a themed dinner revolving around pumpkins, risotto and chocolate!  Buona domenica, enjoy your Sunday...
