Photos from A Festive Night in Mondavio


Summer festival season has kicked off in Italy! With family and friends in town we drove out of the mountains and towards to the coast to the soft rolling hills of Le Marche for a "Cuisines of the World" festival in Mondavio.  Jason & I were so excited at the prospect of Chinese, Mexican...something other than Italian for the night.


However, as expected the selection of food was not what I would call "of the world" - a few food trucks from Puglia overflowing with taralli, one from Spain serving paella, a craft beer stand with a Japanese name but made locally and of course the busiest food stand: pasta with truffles.  It always impresses us how not matter what size of festival there is (feeding 50 - 500) the pasta is ALWAYS cooked perfectly!



Just as we arrived the medieval festivities began (I have no idea what that has to do with cuisines of the world but...) making the night perfectly Italian.












We meandered about the tiny town, in awe of the massive antique trebuchets/catapults, bought beautiful handmade tablecloths, rocked out to young Italians covering Classic Rock (and doing a damn good job), ate too much pasta and enjoyed a spectacular sunset in good company.
