LOCAL WILD FOOD CHALLENGE – May 16-23 – La Morra
Mark your calendars for the Local Wild Food Challenge held from May 16-23 at the Castle of Verduno. The culinary competition began in a small town in New Zealand in 2008, and today is held in 8 different locations around the world—including the Langhe! The fun part about this culinary challenge is that participants may cook their dishes using only ingredients locally found, caught, hunted, and gathered in nature. Bring out your hunter-gatherer side and creative cooking skills for this fun event. May the best chef win!
