Favelous presents: The battle of Italian wines #2

The Abruzzo and Marche border vs Pecorino

25 aug 2013

Italian chef Andrea Sossi and sommelier Barbara Summa are exploring the border between Abruzzo and Marche. This border separates middle from southern Italy in language, politics, geography, culture and cuisine. But the borderland between the two share similar wines and products. The menu consists of four courses with a number of traditional specialities and wines. And of course the battle between the Arbuzzo/Marche wines and different Pecorino sorts (an autochtone white wine rediscovered some 20 years ago).

Favelous was the Freezing Favela's pop-up canteen, runned by Andrea Sossi and Robert Bochove. They served honest, seasonal, affordable food and hosted workshops.

Freezing Favela

Freezing Favela was a temporary city at Mediamatic Fabriek. The space is big, unheated, and the roof leaks. Designers, cooks, and other makers had claimed part of this space as their own. In the Favela you could make tosti's from scratch, paper from cow dung, furniture from cardboard, and cook with ingredients from the aquaponics farm. Favela-citizens gave workshops and organized events and meals.
