umbria


Tradition is at the base of the cuisine of Umbria. Typical Umbrian dishes are based on the meat and the products of the land. It is a simple kitchen, with not too elaborate workings, which exalt the flavours of raw materials in a clean way.
The roots of Umbrian cuisine sink in the civilisation of the Umbrian people and the Romans with frequent use of legumes and cereals. Typical of the whole territory is the processing of pork meat and the production of salami.
A speciality of the Umbrian gastronomy is the cake “al testo”, which was born as an alternative to bread in the lunches of the peasant families and owes its name to the hob, called "text", or the brick tile on which, in ancient Rome, the focaccia was cooked.
