From “boreto a la graisana” to “frico friulano” and “cjarsòns carnici”, the cuisine “Made in Friuli-Venezia Giulia” represents the fusion of three great culinary currents: Venetian, Slavic and Central European. The typicality of the regional flavours is revealed in a wealth of recipes from an incredible variety of landscapes, environments and climates, made unique by the authenticity of the local products.
Among the products of excellence of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region many of them are certified agri-food products. Among the PDO products you can find the famous San Daniele ham, Montasio cheese, Tergeste extra-virgin olive oil, Italian “salamini” a la “Cacciatora” and the “Brovada”. As far as PGI products are concerned, you can find the Sauris ham and the “Pitina”. The Region also has 11 “Presidi Slow Food”.
This Region is also famous throughout the world for its wines, including Friuliano, Ribolla Gialla and Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso. This region contains nine PDO zones, three DOCG zones and two interregional PDO zones for a production of 80 million bottles a year.
Friulian viticulture, traditionally adapted for quality productions, converted last year almost all of its viticulture to the production of PDO / DOCG wines, which now accounts for 90% of the region’s total production.
In order to valorise and promote the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region’s certified oenogastronomic products, the “Camera di Commercio Italo-Lussemburghese”, in collaboration with “PromoTurismo FVG”, has organised an online event with a tasting on the 30th of September to present to the local press and specialists in the food&wine and tourism sectors the precious link that exists between the Region’s territory and its products.
The event was organised within the framework of the project Authentic Italian Table – True Italian Taste, promoted by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the International Cooperation with Assocamerestero, the association of Italian Chambers of Commerce Abroad.
