The Biennale Enogastronomica Fiorentina is certainly one of the more interesting events taking place this November in Florence, as wehad already written in this article about the main initiatives of the month but this weekend of the 21st, 22nd and 23rd of November seems to be particularly intriguing.
Aromas and flavors are going to invade two wonderful locations, Piazza Santa Maria Novella and the Tepidarium Roster in the Horticultural Garden with two foodie events that I strongly recommend you experience!
The Market of Flavors and Crafts
Starting today and continuing this Saturday and Sunday, from 9am to 9pm in Piazza Santa Maria Novella you will find the “Market of the Flavors and Crafts” (Mercato dei sapori e dei mestieri) that will offer visitors and Florentines alike a selection of food delicacies and excellent crafts made in Tuscany and beyond. Admission is free.
Perfect for starting your Christmas shopping, right?
La Cucina di Strada: Beer & Street Food Festival
In the charming greenhouse Tepidarium Roster within the Horticultural Garden (in the Ponte Rosso area), on Friday 21st (from 5pm to 12am), Saturday 22nd (from 11am to 12am) and Sunday 23rd (from 11am to 9pm) you’ll find the “Cucina di strada: Beer and Street Food” festival. The event celebrates the best of street food from all around the world (from local Florentine trippa to Mexican tacos), which you can sample accompanied by homegrown and foreign beers.
They also have scheduled several cooking shows and guided food tastings.
Admission is free.
Hope everyone has a a very tasty weekend! 😉
