SHORT DESCRIPTION

 

Bergamo is the split-into-two town: Bergamo Alta (‘the high Bergamo”) and Bergamo Bassa (“the low town”), joined by the historic cable car.
During our Bergamo food tour that will take place in the beautiful Bergamo Alta, we selected the best preparations, capable of presenting in one dish the food culture of area of Bergamo: from the farmers’ traditional meals, to the richly presented meats, to the gelato ‘stracciatella’, which was first created in Bergamo indeed.
During Bergamo food tour you will be escorted by our local Foodie and you will discover a secret itinerary enclosed within the walls of the Città Alta, created following strong flavours and delicate scents, starting from the origins of the Lombard tradition and taking us to the contemporary Bergamo food scene that we know today.

POSSIBLE TASTINGS

  • Aperitivo with glass of Valcalepio - the traditional aperitivo Bergamasco, composed of toasted bread slices topped with local garnishments, sided by a glass of Valcalepio red wine, directly from the hills surrounding Bergamo and famous for the sweetness of their products.
  • Casoncelli - It's an handmade pasta, shaped as a half-fool moon, created with a mixture of flours, filled with (according to the season and the ingredients’ availability): breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, beef meat, pork meat, parsley, raisins, lemon zest, almonds and so much more. According to the traditional recipe, the dish is topped with bacon and sage.
  • Foiade - it is the Sunday dish of the local tradition. Every small village around Bergamo has its own type of flour, favourite pasta shape and favourite topping. The foliade are indeed great with different sort of sauce, such as meat, cheeses and mushrooms.
  • Polenta with lard and cheese - the centuries-old dish composed of corn flour, accompanied by local lard slices in order to make the dish creamier or, in alternative topped with savoury cheese from the nearby valleys.
  • Grilled handmade bread with taleggio cheese - a mountain classic, equally delicious in any season, also in the warmer days. A rustic loaf is topped with the local, tasty taleggio cheese and caramelized golden onions.
  • Gelato "stracciatella" flavour - stracciatella is one of the most loved gelato flavour in Italy and beyond. Composed of milk and cream, with dark chocolate chips. We will take you to taste it in the very gelato confectionery who invented the stracciatella in the Sixties. This is a must!
  • Espresso coffee - it is the inevitable conclusion of every Italian proper meal. We offer it in a historic coffee shop, accompanied with artisanal whipped cream.
