Summer 2012 events and food festivals

Summer has finally arrived in these days in Umbria and it's time to plan your schedule!
The season is so rich in events that it is really quite difficult to make a list of the "must do's"...

However a list of events we are happy to suggest (but....for the moment!):

Food, food, food!

Summer is also the season of amazing food events and festivals, the so-called "sagra" organized in many Umbrian small towns and villages.

Here our favourite food events:

WINERIES AND RESTAURANTS IN THE LIMELIGHT (Cantine e Chef alla Ribalta)  a series of  special “educational” dinners to promote Umbrian wineries and local chefs, organized by our friends from Itinera, il Palazzo del Gusto and in collaboration with our delegation of Sommeliers FISAR.
In Orvieto from the 13th August to the 9th September

PORTO SAGRA DEL PESCE lake fish festival organized by the warm-hearted citizens of the small village  of Porto, close to Trasimeno lake, this year from the 8th to the 15th August.

In 2010 I wrote a post on my first experience, experience that I'm happy to repeat each year, of course! 
See my blog post :Sagra del Pesce at Trasimeno Lake – a wonderful Mid-Summer "eating" night

...and that's not all! Many other events are coming and we are happy to update your busy Umbrian Summer schedule! Stay tuned!
