Enjoy a tour of Italy’s finest foods at Salisbury Market Place on 9 & 10 August as Salisbury City Council brings this new speciality market to the city centre.
Sample the delights of Salumeria, a variety of cheeses, famous Parmigiano Reggiano, Gorgonzola Dolce and varieties which derive from the Alps. Cured meats ranging from the classic Proisciutto Crudo, to the delicate yet distinctive Beef Bresaola from Valtellina. Meats include Salame, Pancetta and Mortadella with pistachio and don’t forget to taste the delicious focaccia, Ciabatta or a Campagna country loaf too!
Try something different from an impressive display of pasta, extra long black Squid Ink and Chilli Pepper spaghettoni, large shells and tricolore pasta. The selection of Italian cuisine on offer is endless; traditional Italian herbs for Bruschetta, Mediterranean Pesto, olives and oils from Sicily, Liguria and Napoli and for those with a sweet tooth try, seasonal biscuits, cakes and pastries, classic Dolci Pasticciera, and Sicilian Cannoli. Torrone; the famous nougat cake first made on 25 Ocober 1441 in the village of Torrazzo, near Cremona,
And if that’s not enough to get your taste buds going, there are hot foods to sample like arancini, rice balls with various fillings, a classic Sicilian speciality and all hand-made. The “Italian hot-dog” must be tried, Salsiccia Italiana.
