Le Marche Aperitivo 101
What we eat:
We absolutely love slices of freshly baked Crescia (flat bread) to be stuffed with a variety of local cold cuts, such as Ciauscolo or Lonzino, if you prefer.
A selection of fresh and ripened cheese, such as Pecironi di Fossa or other varieties flavoured with herbs, especially from Marche!
Sweet, slightly aromatic and light-coloured honey to taste with cheese.
Warm toasted bread served with genuine Cartoceto olive oil. Olive oil in Le Marche has a typical medium-light fruity flavour, with the taste tending to be sweet with some bitter and spicy tones.
What we drink:
The choice is truly wide and quite sophisticated!
If you like red wine, Le Marche is famous for the production of Lacrima di Morro d"Alba, a red wine known all over the world with the typical taste of the Le Marche hills.
If you like white wine, Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi produced in the provinces of Macerata and Ancona is a must. It has a pale yellow colour, a delicate smell and a dry taste with a pleasant bitter finish.
Other typical wines are the red Conero, the red Piceno, Bianchello, Bianco di Bonfumo, Bianco Piceno and Passerina.
If you do not prefer wine, we love our Summer Lemonade or Limonata. Check out the recipe in Local Marche Recipes.
