Foodies are flocking to Florence to celebrate excellence in taste.
The sixth annual fair, called simply ‘Taste’, will run from 12 to 14 March, 2011 at the Stazione Leopolda in Florence. The three-day event is a full gastronomic experience, dedicated to sampling, buying and discovering new culinary goodies.
The mouth-watering program features tasting tours, food talks and specialty vendors selling kitchen tools. The event will also showcase photography exhibits, paintings and movies dedicated to the Italian food tradition.
The stars of the lineup are of course the delicious regional treats that will be available from 240 Italian food companies. Visitors will be able to sample gourmet delicacies ranging from cream of black truffle soup to Pecorino cheese with saffron and balsamic vinegar chocolates.
To take a break from indulgence, guests can watch a preliminary heat for chefs trying to qualify for the Pesto World Championship.
