In mid August, we were in Cortona for the porcini sagra.
It is held along the Roman road which is park most of the time. For this event (and the steak sagra, held the week before) the road up to the park is opened and with Ben’s handicapped sticker we are able to drive right up. From there it is a wonderfully flat surface so it is easy to get to this one. We joined Grace, Gian Carlo, Tania, Keith and his relatives for dinner.
porcini soup, which has a lot of croutons in it. It is pretty tasty, but very hardy fare for a hot August night.
Fried porcini. There was also “country style steak” with a rich porcini gravy. A very tasty meal and a fun night.
