Passo del Cerreto, Collagna, RE , Italy. A CHESTNUTS BIG PARTY!

Collagna, RE , Italy:
On Saturday January18th at 5.00 pm, a yummy ‘Gastronomic Laboratory of the Apennines’ will take place. at the Passo del Cerreto, at the Giannarelli Restaurant, Visitor Center of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennine National Park.
The protagonists are chestnut producers and restaurateurs of the Zero Km circuit of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines. On the occasion, the fourth ‘Contest’ will take place among the producers of chestnut flour made with the traditional method on the ridges of Emilia and Tuscany, a monument of tradition that binds the territory. Three moments of the competition: the sensory analysis of the product, by a jury of experts; the tasting of competing flours with small samples produced by the restaurateurs of the Km Zero circuit; the revisiting of a traditional dish by a representative chef from the Apennines.
‘Dolce & Farina’ is the event dedicated to the chestnut chain: an ancient path that has always linked the Apennini communities to their mountains. For many small villages, the recovery of the bread tree – as the chestnut was traditionally called – and its fruits, as well as the re-ignition of the dryers and the production phases of the precious flour, represent a renewed sense of community; a job for all the autumn months, until the winter, which brings people back to being together for a good that returns to being collective..on Saturday 18 January 2020 at 5.00 pm
