ErbaOlio - Petritoli's 6th Taste Festival of olive oil and food based on wild herbs
Together with Petritoli, the communities of Francavilla d'Ete, Montefiore dell'Aso, Monte San Pietrangeli, Moresco, Smerillo, constitute the "The Wild Herb Circuit", which works to rediscover the wild herbs and to use them, as they have been used for centuries, in various ways from traditional cooking to popular medicine to beauty care.
On Sunday, 4 December, 2011at Petritoli the wild herbs marry with the olive oil in the old, traditional dishes and in some new innovative dishes created by our cooks.
In 2011, the ErbaOlio programme will include participation in olive picking, visiting the oil mills open especially for the day and collecting wild herbs. Of course, there will also be the chance to enjoy a themed lunch and the traditional ErbaOlio Fair in the sports ground.
