Cuisine of Marche Region for gourmets. Places for dinner - best restaurants

Il monumento al Passetto The cuisine of Marche borrows traditions and courses from the masters of Rimini and Abruzzo but also stands out by its unique approaches at the same time. Its main peculiarity is an unusual combination of the finest delicacies and plain and practical dishes, which came from peasants’ food. Fish, seafood, truffles, pasta, cheese, veal, pork, different fruit and vegetables – this is hardly a complete list of things, they make in this region of Italy. Anyway, first things first.
Marche region has long been one of the most visited parts of Italy. The region has numerous attractive features, including an abundance of beautiful old towns and charming seaside resorts, … Open
One of the unique courses of Marche is brodetto. You can taste its classic variant in Ancona, the capital of the region. For making a brodetto, they use 13 kinds of fish and seafood, onion, garlic, parsley, and olive oil. By the way, they still argue about the origin of the number of ingredients. The religious people claim they embody the number of participants of the “Last Supper”, the patriotic ones think it’s because of the Fountain of Calamo, the symbol of Ancona, which has thirteen masks. And the historians think, this all happened because of the practicality of peasants, who prepared the dish from the seafood leftovers. Just in case, don’t call brodetto a fish soup: the cooks might get offended.
It should be mentioned, there is no “canonic” recipe of brodetto. In Ancona you may find variants with lentils and tomato, in Fano – with vinegar and tomato sauce, in Recanati it is served with toasted bread and in Vasto, they add salt, pepper, and vinegar. One thing is constant – thick consistency, more like a stew, which is prepared in deep dishes for the ingredients not to mix. Another unique dish of Marche is “pit cheese”. They put sheep’s or goat cheese in special boxes and bury them at the depth of two meters for five months. After this, the taste of the product changes for the better. Formaggio di fossa, as the Italians call it, they add to pasta, risotto, salads, and use as a stuffing for the ravioli. Copyright www.orangesmile.com

In Marche you can try Vincisgrass – lasagna with chicken liver. Minestra di Lumancelle soup is also interesting; it has a unique type of pasta in it. Minestra di Trippa, which is made with tripe, is usually served with battuto or lard with spices. In this region, they love meat courses. They usually use a tender and juicy meat with minimum fat consistency. They prepare it a variety of ways. For example, pilotto – a piece of meat, backed with lard, or porchetta, which is a fried boneless pork with herbs.
Porto di Ancona In Marche they love sausages and know how to make them. Prosciutto di Carpegna, a salami with juniper – one of the most unusual dishes of the region. Soppresse, Salsicce, Ciauscolo – all those sausages are worth tasting. Among different types of cheese pay attention to Casciotta d'Urbino, Raviggiolo del Montefeltro cheese, and Slattato. Try ascolane, an interesting dish, made of olives, stuffed with meat and fried in rye and egg.

The variety of desserts will melt your heart, even if you are totally indifferent to sweets. Here you will find honey balls Cicerchiata, and Bacciate with pine nuts, and Frustega cookies, made from the grape must. Migliaccio has an original taste, and has pig’s blood, sugar, and an orange and a tangerine peel in its content. The most popular alcohol drinks in Marche are Verdicchio white wine and anise liqueur Anisette. As anywhere else in Italy, you will find here many types of coffee to any taste, and there is also juice in the menu of any café.
