Fritto Misto Festival Celebrates Fried Food

The “Fritto Misto” Festival returns to Ascoli Piceno from April 25 to May 4 for its tenth edition dedicated to fried food from Italy and the world.

The event features tastings, workshops and cooking shows. Many Italian regions will be represented through their specialties: Sicily with its arancini, cannoli and frittelle di riso (rice fritters); Puglia with panzerotti and scagliozze; Emilia with gnocco fritto; Lazio with its typical fried foods accompanied by baccalà fillets and artichokes; and Marche with the oliva tenera ascolana (Ascoli tender olive), maccheroncini di Campofilone and frittura di Paranza (fried fish).

Four celebrated Italian chefs will attend the event and delight visitors with their menus. The four chefs are all from Le Marche: Enrico Mazzaroni, Moreno Cedroni, Aurelio Damiani and Errico Recanati.
