Fried food festival in Ascoli Piceno

Ascoli Piceno is, of course, famous its fried olives or 'oliva all’ascolana DOP'. Fried olives from AscoliEvery spring the city is transformed, suitably enough, into the capital of mixed fries 'or 'fritto misto'.

This food event is actualy called 'Fritto Misto' and is a window on the whole spectrum of Italian fried gastronomy from many regions.

No greasy burgers here, just 'arancine siciliane', 'batsoà piemontese', fried Abruzzese cheeses, 'baccalà romano', 'fiori di zucca toscani, as well as 'zafarani cruschi calabresi', 'fritolin veneziano' and 'krapfen altoatesini' etc

It all takes place in the historical centre of Ascoli Piceno over the May Holiday period.

Some non Italian fried delicacies do get a look in such as 'scedbakie' from Morocco, Chinese fried ice cream and perhaps even goog old British fish & chips.

For anyone wanting to know where to eat for the occasion, Fritto Misto proposes a circuit of local restaurants who offer special menus for the period.

They tend to offer a mix of both traditonal fried fare and classic recipes, the latter given a modern twist by the chefs.

The restaurants involved are recognisable from a sign in the window and discounts are available for all diners holding the Fritto Card.
