This year we had the chance to visit the beautiful city of La Spezia in Liguria during the days of their biennial city festival called 'Festa della Marineria'.
The Festival has been really amazing because it was a mix of Sea culture, industry, kitchen and history composed by many events for adults and kids. On the stages built in the beautiful seaside of La Spezia you could attend to speeches and presentations from Italian and International speakers like Gualtiero Marchesi, Marco Bianchi and Henz Beck just to name a few.
Always on the seaside we really loved the 'Ape Car' street food show.
Ape Car is the iconic three-wheeled light commercial vehicle produced since 1948 by Piaggio in Pontedera, Italy and today they are also being used as street food mobile restaurants just like the ones we found on the seaside of La Spezia:
Gnocco Fritto is a typical 'frittella' (fried dough) from the Emilia Romagna Region in Italy. It is usually served very hot together with some delicious Italian cold cuts like Salame or Mortadella.
Those guys of Mozao are base in Roma inside their beautiful roulotte called 'La Luisona' made an excellent job and we were definitely delighted by the taste of their Gnocchi with Mortadella from Bologna.
Puccia is a typical kind of bread from the Salento, Puglia in the heel of the booth in South of Italy. Puccia is typical filled by mozzarella, tomato and some cold cuts but you can also find it made with meat.
If you want to have a chance to try this incredible street food we suggest you to check their calendar of upcoming events on their website.
This guys with the black Ape called L'Aparella belong to a family of buffalo breeders so they definitely know how to get a good mozzarella.
Visit their website to check their menus and where to find them.
Tiziana and Basilio, an Architect and a Radio Technician living in Milan have decided to go back to their roots in Sicily and start their adventure in the street food market bringing 'pane cunzato' a typical sicilian bread with tomato and anchovies. Check their menu to discover more.
This guys with their Roulotte come from Rome to present their delicious gourmet paninis made with fish or meat. They are very good combining typical flavors from the kitchen of Italian Capitol in a street food original way.
Francesco Canestrale quit his corporate job to because he wanted to match his two strongest passions: travels and food. Now he travels Italy and Europe bringing the typical italian gastronomy with a special focus on the could cuts tradition of the Umbria ancient town of Norcia.
This guys from Piemonte, the north of Italy region of Turin, prepare the typical Miasse, a thin bread-like made of polenta (mais dough) just like their grandmothers did. Miasse are then filled by their local cheeses and salame and we can ensure you that you won't never forget this wonderful meeting.
