Things to See Hear and Taste during the Holiday Season in Zagreb Croatia | Arezza Network of Sustainable Communities E-News | Scoop.it
Arezza Network's insight:

A visit to the capital of Croatia and its thousand year history during the holiday season begins with a stroll around its neighborhoods: King Tomislav Square and Zrinjevac Park, with its fountains. From the park, a short walk on Praska street leads to the main square called Trg Bana Jelacica.

 

At the Cathedral, there is a Live Nativity Scene: stables, farm animals, realistic costumes and amateur actors impersonating the Holy Family, the Three Kings and the shepherds. The walk ends with a glass of warm cinnamon wine at one of the advent stands.

Arezza Network's insight:

Local Culinary Traditions can be experienced with the catch of the day, combined with vegetables and Mediterranean macchia herbs producing dishes such as swordfish cooked in lemon leaves, parmigiana with anchovies, tuna in a genovese sauce, squid and potatoes, the latter especially popular with the local farmer-fishermen and their very large families.

 

A Cuisine that captures and blends scents from land and sea: migliaccio, minestra maritata and caponata are among the dishes typically found at local restaurants.

 

Monasteries Monks and Nuns have experimented and contributed to all this with a judicious use of lemons, fennel, laurel, nuts and wild strawberries, creating sweets and preserves, the Santa Rosa cake, bocconotto, melanzane with chocolate and even the famed caprese.

 

Pizza is another local tradition, exported by the over three thousand Tramonti pizzaioli who have travelled and  brought their talents all over the world.

The Cilento Coast by Boat with Visits to Paestum Velia and Palinuro | Arezza Network of Sustainable Communities E-News | Scoop.it
Arezza Network's insight:

Cilento

All the ingredients that visitors to Italy look for can be found here: pristine beaches, a national park under Unesco’s protection, coastal and inland panoramas and a superb culinary tradition. Coastal, hilly, and mountainous landscapes follow each other, showing vestiges of man`s ancient presence; Greek colonizers landed in the 7th century BC and founded Poseidonia (the Roman Paestum). Of major interest:

Paestum is surrounded by well kept 5 Km long Roman walls and includes three famous and imposing VI and V century BC Doric temples, the Archeological Museum and The Diver fresco.

 

Velia was founded circa 540 BC. Archeological excavations have gradually unveiled the remains of this town, the amphitheater and the Porta Rosa (Pink Door).

Cilento Coast if you can spare an extra day, your boat can take you further down the Cilento coast with stops along the way at quaint fishing villages in the company of a breathtaking coastline, all the way down to Palinuro, named after Ulysses’ helmsman on the voyage back to Ithaca.

Brandywine Valley Craft Breweries and Delaware Wine Trails | Arezza Network of Sustainable Communities E-News | Scoop.it
Arezza Network's insight:

Craft Breweries have gained significant popularity in recent years, due to a receptive craft-brewing culture. Also, water from the Brandywine Valley is:

chlorine and fluoride free, andabundant with minerals that leave the beer with a refreshing taste.


Following the Colonial tradition, the beer is un-pasteurized and unfiltered with four ingredients: water, whole flour hops, grains, and cultured brewer yeast. It is also canned sustainably with recyclable aluminum.


Delaware Wine Trail The local climate benefits from the moderating effects of Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Inland, the state becomes quite rural and agriculturally based, particularly in the south. Grape-growing and wine production  consists of three wineries, with adjacent vineyards growing Merlot, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.
