#Terrediconfine July 2015 – Ancient food tradition in Todi and Orvieto

Melodie in Vigna – Roccafiore – Todi

The tradition and ancient food culture of the two tows Orvieto and Todi are the common thread of the project #TerrediConfine [borderlands] by the local Cultural Association Brumalia.

During the first and inaugural event MELODIE IN VIGNA in Todi last Saturday, Brumalia unveiled the rich programme that is running in the month of July in both the territories:

JULY 9 – Porano (village close to Orvieto) at Locanda Colle Ombroso
FIORI DA MANGIARE, the ancient tradition of edible flowers: cooking show and food tasting

JULY 11 – Todi at Istituto Agrario
IL BOCCONCELLO: Nonna Villelma and her friends disclose the public the original recipe of Bocconcello,  an ancient cheese bread used during the period of the threshing in Todi and other neighbouring towns of Umbria.

JULY 24 – Orvieto at Grotte dei Tronchi Fossili
SUONI DEL VINO: young talented drummers reproduce the “sounds of the wine”, the sounds of the grape picking, pressing, bottling… Wine tasting with Orvietan wine in pairing with local products.

JULY 25 – Todi at Istituto Agrario
IL PANE DELLE FESTE: culinary duel between the traditional local bread Pane Nociato from Todi vs. Lumanchella, the typical snail-shaped bread from Orvieto.
