Sagra de lù scartocciu

Collina di Serrapetrona, Macerata (Marche) – Scartocciu, I believe, is most likely dialect for cartoccio. Food wrapped in baking parchment or foil are described as being al cartoccio, so it makes sense that corn husks would be considered as a form of wrapping too. Here you have corn-on-the-cob, italian-style – obviously very different as we know it in the states.

Pasta and grilled meats were also being served along with a slightly sparkling red vernaccia that is completely different from the famous Vernaccia di San Gimignano in Tuscany. Even if I didn’t care for the corn at all, it still was a beautiful evening out in this part of Italy.
