Le Marche on an infographic Map: The Wine And Food Of Italy | Wines and People | Scoop.it
Our infographic shows how intertwined food and wine are in Italy, displaying each region's most famous dish along with its most popular wine.
Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Vinepair.com prepared an infographic about the Italian Regional food and its wines. For example, La Marche’s fried olives are clearly a perfect match for the bracing, bright acidity of Verdicchio.

Wine and Truffles: a perfect match from Le Marche by Tamara Griffiths

Wine and Truffles: a perfect match from Le Marche by Tamara Griffiths | Wines and People | Scoop.it

In fact, I was relieved to learn this simple solution for pairing wines and truffles grown in the same area (as close to each other as possible) was advocated at a presentation of a unique guidebook to truffles. The book, 'Piceno, Terra di Tartufi' was inaugurated by the Unione Montana dei Sibillini in the mountain village of Comunanza, in the Marche region of the Central Apennines, Italy. Unfortunately it is available only in Italian. It includes scientific and technical facts, but unlike other books -- for the first time -- there are recipes beyond the ordinary, neither to be found on the internet nor in other books, and finally wine solutions as well! [...]

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Considering both wines and truffles alter in taste depending on the content of the soil where they grow, it would seem to make sense to choose wines that come from where the truffle is produced. Central Italy is the main area for black truffles in Italy. Indeed it is claimed that the Marche region was the first place of truffle cultivation in Italy, beginning in 1932, and then blossoming in the 1950s and 1960s due to Mannozzi Torini, a regional inspector belonging to the Corpo Forestrale dello Stato.

Where seasonal eating is a way of living and drinking world class local wines

Where seasonal eating is a way of living and drinking world class local wines | Wines and People | Scoop.it

The Le Marche weekend was a nice and long one. We had time to cook at our friends house as well as go out to eat. I love to browse around even in the local supermarkets, everything looks exotic and they also follow the seasons in terms of eating and if it isn’t in season, why eat it? It is the same at the markets where they had artichokes and broad beans in abundance and asparagus is coming in to season, still a little on the pricey side but give it a couple of weeks more. 
We went for a drive in the beautiful mountains and came across a winery. On the off chance we stopped to see if we could have a taste and pick some really nice wines up for the evening. We didn’t realise that we had come across Fattoria Dezi, one of the best wineries in Italy! Well officially selected the best Italian winery in 2008.
This is a family company, run with true passion for the region, the land and the grapes. This is reflected in the names for the wines bringing Le Marche to the world through the distribution. Needless to say we bought bottles, red and white and we had a great evening!

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Herb and Spice Pairings with Wine.

Normally people drink beer with Indian, Mexican, African, Asian, or Caribbean foods because is refreshing, and it does not contrast with the fiery flavors of chillies, herbs, spices and sauces.
Pairing wine with hot and spicy foods can be extremely daunting.
But all is not lost. Here an infographic with few simple guidelines to enhance both the wine and the food.

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

The Guardian presents the 20 best recipes submitted by as many important chefs very oriented on Italian food. I choose for me the one of Ann & Franco Taruschio "spaghetti with garlic, oil and chilli" because so simple to prepare in these summer nights without anything in the fridge, because the recipe represents a little bit the south of the Marche where it is called "oglie aglie" and because Franco has origins Marchigiane
