The Best Aperitivo Appetizer: Olive Ascolane, stuffed green olives

The Best Aperitivo Appetizer: Olive Ascolane, stuffed green olives | Discover Le Marche - Italy | Scoop.it

Italians take aperitifs very seriously – or rather, the bite sized food that you eat when drinking an aperitif.  However sometimes a warm appetizer works better – something tasty and salty, maybe like an olive but with an added kick, incredible crumbed and fried olives. You could not stop at one (or two, or three…). Olive Ascolane typical of the region of Le Marche, on the Adriatic sea.

Large green olives, pitted and stuffed with an array of meats and spices, crumbed and then deep fried. Then imagine dipping one in some aioli before taking a bite into this tasty decadent little morsel. They take a little bit of time to construct but they are simple. We all love a foolproof recipe! You don’t need to serve them with aioli (garlic mayonnaise) – but it is a nice touch and balances the saltiness. You can use the recipe for aioli below or else one from an older post that uses roasted garlic (link is here). As they are appetizers, serve them with your favorite aperitif on the side, which for me is a Prosecco or an Aperol Spritz. Salute!

Olive Ascolane*
40 large green olives, pitted
60g roughly chopped good quality salami or sopressa
90g pork mince
90g veal mince
1 teaspoon fennel seeds, dry roasted
Flour
1 – 2 eggs, lightly beaten
Home made bread crumbs
Vegetable oil for frying
Zest of one lemon
2 teaspoons finely chopped rosemary
Aioli:
1 egg yolk
125ml olive oil
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon lemon juice (or more to taste)
1/2 clove of garlic, crushed
Sea salt to taste

What NOT To Wear When Summering In Italy - ItaLingua

What NOT To Wear When Summering In Italy - ItaLingua | Discover Le Marche - Italy | Scoop.it

We can all spot one a million miles away - that gawking tourist with camera in hand, sporting a fanny pack, and wearing a “Lakers Champions 2010” t-shirt. Please, don’t be thattourist.

 

Taking a trip to Italy is a chance to not only soak in the historic sites, but to absorb and assimilate into Italian style. Of course not everyone is a fashionista concerned about what wardrobe to bring along for an Italian getaway, but dressing up and blending in with locals is a great way to grasp the Italian lifestyle. Plus, it’s a way to avoid mishaps with thieves and other people who target tourists. Don’t be ashamed of being a tourist, but don’t be too obvious either. Here are a few tips that may help.

 

Try not to wear shorts. Summers in Italy are hot, but unless they are heading for the beach, Italians don’t usually wear shorts. Girls, opt for skirts or sundresses. Guys, try out linen pants, light colored pants, or even capris (a.k.a. manpris, how very European)!

 

Do not wear flip-flops. Again, this is an item reserved for the beach. Plus, flip-flops are really not ideal for walking on cobbled streets and entering religious sites. Go for sandals or just really great walking shoes.

 

Do not wear shirts with huge logos. Italian style is understated.

 

For goodness sake, please do NOT wear a fanny pack. It’s the biggest give-away that you are a tourist! In my experience, cross-body bags (with thick straps) are comfortable, accessible, and fashionable. If you are carrying a large amount of cash (which you shouldn’t be on a daily basis), store it in a discreet money belt tucked underneath your shirt/pants.

 

Scarves are essential, even in the summer. Markets swap out heavy scarves for pretty, patterned silk ones. They’re light, gorgeous, and great during a balmy but slightly windy sunset.

Fabriano is one of the few cities in the world where to this day paper is still manufactured by hand, evidence of the determination of not closing with this past centuries old tradition. The precious sheets that exit from the “tubs” department are utilized for prestigious editions, artistic designs and art prints, correspondence and invitation paper, University degrees, treasury bonds, etc.

2013 ORCi World Championship to be held in Ancona, Italy

2013 ORCi World Championship to be held in Ancona, Italy | Discover Le Marche - Italy | Scoop.it

The Marina Dorica Association and the Offshore Racing Congress (ORC) are pleased to announce that the 2013 ORCi World Championship will be held at Marina Dorica in Ancona, Italy over 21-29 June 2013.

This annual event is the sole Offshore World Championship sanctioned by the International Sailing Federation (ISAF), and the four organizing clubs - SEF Stamura, Ancona Yacht Club, Lega Navale Italiana di Ancona, and Assonautica Ancona - are affiliates of the Italian Sailing Federation (FIV).

The 2013 ORCi Worlds will benefit from the support of the municipality of Ancona and the regional authorities of Marche who granted their support for the initiative. Sailing is an old tradition of this area and the event will represent a special opportunity to internationally promote Marche and its natural and architectural beauties. 2013 is also an important year for Ancona, as the city will be celebrating its 2400th anniversary of its founding, so there will be many celebrations and events on the calendar to attract the interest of visitors to the area...

Le Marche Prosciutto di Carpegna among the Top 10 Italian Prosciutti

Le Marche Prosciutto di Carpegna among the Top 10 Italian Prosciutti | Discover Le Marche - Italy | Scoop.it
A journey through the delicatessen of Italian salamis: the many differences and characteristic flavours are made possible by the unique climate of each region and by the tradition and history of Italian gastronomy.

 

Prosciutto Carpegna DOP (Marche)

The territory of Carpegna is poorly industrialised and has a very low level of pollution. It is dominated by natural grasslands, conifer forests and rare trees that thrive in environments with low humidity. Together with this micro-climate, the pigs are fed with acorns and wild fauna that give the pork's meat a special flavour creating this unique prosciutto (seasoned with white wine).

Sartarelli – A Verdicchio Winery to Remember

Sartarelli – A Verdicchio Winery to Remember | Discover Le Marche - Italy | Scoop.it

Just outside of the town of Poggio San Marcello in the heart of Le Marche's Verdicchio wine country, where the hills rise majestically to the west of the city of Ancona on the Adriatic Sea, we found the winery of Societa Agricola Sartarelli. Taken there by Annemarie Homan, co-owner of the excellent B&B Terra Mossa at which we stayed for several days, we met with Caterina Chiacchiarini, daughter of the winery owners, Patricio Chiacchiarini and Donatella Sartarelli. Signorina Chiacchiarini, back at the winery after living for several years in New York City, was our tour host and tasting guide.

Sartarelli is somewhat unique as a winery in that it produces only one type of wine, Verdicchio. Grown primarily in Le Marche, the Verdicchio grape has been around this area for over seven hundred years. Today, the area in which Sartarelli is located has become well known for its Verdicchio Dei Castelli Di Jesi, one of a number of Verdicchio DOC designations in Le Marche. My visit to the region was eye-opening to me, a red wine aficionado, as I found that Le Marche's white wines were excellent.

Caterina Chiacchiarini.

The Sartarelli family began their wine growing activities in the 1960s when they sold their grapes to other wineries. In 1972 the family stopped selling their grapes to others and started making their own wines. Today, under the direction of Patricio Chiacchiarini and Donatella Sartarelli, his wife, assisted by their two adult children, Caterina and winemaker Tommaso, and consulting oenologist Alberto Mazzioni, Societa Agricola Sartarelli comprises 60 hectares of vineyards and six hectares of olive trees and a very well maintained winery. Here they produce approximately 300,000 bottles of wine /year.
Sartarelli produces three types of Verdicchio Dei Castelli Di Jesi dry white wine and a sweet Passito, all 100% Verdicchio grapes. The grapes for the Classico wine are collected in farm wagons while the grapes for the other, selected wines are collected in small crates, all at different times. The vinification process first soft presses the grapes at pressures up to two atmospheres but usually lower. Then, after the must is pumped into stainless steel tanks, static separation of approximately 95% of the lees occurs. The fermentation of the must takes place at 18-20°C for a period of twenty to thirty days. After the fermentation period, decanting is carried out in the tanks to clean the wine which remains in the tanks at 16°C until bottling.

Our first wine to be tasted was a 2011 DOC Verdicchio Dei Castelli Di Jesi Classico, the winery's largest selling wine. Straw yellow in color, this 13% alcohol Verdicchio had a fruity nose and a smooth and pleasant but short finish. It would make a good selection for any fish or seafood pasta dish. I gave this wine an 86 rating.

Le Marche Food: cuisine completely traditional and close to its roots

Le Marche Food: cuisine completely traditional and close to its roots | Discover Le Marche - Italy | Scoop.it

Cuisine in Le Marche is deeply rooted in peasant tradition and as with any rural diet, much use is made of food gathered from the wild; funghi, game, nuts, field herbs and – the area’s greatest culinary treasure – truffles. Waste, too, is frowned upon, and many of the now most fashionable dishes were first developed to use up such things as stale bread or the less appealing parts of the pig.

The Marche table is wonderfully varied and equally shares from the bounty of its coastline as well as its countryside. Each local area has it’s particular “cucina tipica”.

The sea provides the dish Brodetto the most famous fish stew of the Adriatic coast. It varies in form from each coastal town but must contain 13 types of fish. The Marche versions of Brodetto include red and gray mullet, cuttlefish or squid (or both), oil, garlic and saffron – served on either fried or toasted bread. Other seafood favourites include the port of Ancona’s Stoccafisso (dried codfish, which is not native to the Mediterranean), and local varieties like sole, bream, clams and mussels.

The Marche countryside provides...

Mysterious Places - Osimo: an incredible underground town

Mysterious Places - Osimo: an incredible underground town | Discover Le Marche - Italy | Scoop.it

Under the city of Osimo (province of Ancona, Le Marche, Italy) there is an incredible dark second mate.
An underworld which links the main buildings, expanding throughout the city in a maze

This place, full of ancient alchemical symbolism, of which has not yet been given an explanation about its creation and on the respective function, was certainly sailed and lived by the Knights Templar of Malta who used it for their initiation to the Order.
After all, the symbolism of the labyrinth has always been considered the main element for the journey into the darkness of primal chaos toward the light, from a mere mortal and confused soul to an immortal and “enlightened” one. No coincidence that the path was done in an underground place...
