It may be small, and mostly known to the jazz aficionados for its world-known annual festival, but Umbria sure leaves a great mark of excellence to anyone who visits. As one of the pivotal sides of Umbria's pride, food takes a huge portion of daily life in this green region. We probably owe it to the simplicity and true goodness of seasonal produce, ranging from mushrooms and asparagus to privileged black truffles.
Olive oil and cereals, cold cuts, cured meat, and dairy products are amongst the most applauded local delicacies that make out-of-towners stash their bags full before they head back to their countries. Game and bird meats are also a staple of Umbria, best dressed in hand-made pasta dishes or as self-sufficient main courses that will have your taste buds in total delirium. On top of this, a real king of this region is hands-down the local black truffle, or truffles we should say, as we can count around 10 different varieties, of all costs and statuses.
Umbria has the perfect climate for producing pretty much everything delicious. Stop at one of the many wonderful restaurants in Umbria ranging from Michelin-star fine dining to casual osterias, and learn how to be a buongustaio, or otherwise called by the locals 'gourmet'. So whether you and your guests would rather sign up for the (liquid) gold rush scouting the olive groves, or you prefer to invest your non-wedding time in a fun foodie weekend – just know, you’ll always be well catered for.
