A great evening yesterday with disparate friends from different quarters, enjoing seeing each other again or or the first time.
Chisolino featured prominently – that’s the Piacenza version of what in other towns in the region would be called gnocco fritto or torta fritta.
With it, very good salumi, best probably salamelle, then coppa, salame cotto, and salame. These are cured pork meats, and anybody who wonders is advised to try them.
Pieve Dugliara was the venue, a very small town on the verge of the first foothills of Appennines – which provided us with blissful fresh breeze in the heart of summer.
Our friend’s band, the "White and blues", valiantly played in a fair performance to a sparse audience obviously keener on food than on music.
