Quick Sagra Round Up


We’ve been busy this summer.  One of Ben’s daughters, Annalisa is still visiting.  She has made a few trips to visit friends and places she wanted to see and then comes back to us.  And when she comes back we try to go to a sagra or two.

This is from one of our favorites, pizza in Marciano.  Just after I took this, the batteries in my camera died.  No pizza pictures.  But it was good.

Another weekend we were off to porcini in Cortona.

Cortona is a hill town and the park where the sagra is held has a great view across the valley.

And of Lake Trasimeno.  We were there for the mushrooms….

It is a pretty focused menu, porcini in every dish.  Don’t come if you don’t like mushrooms.
