Hey y’all! Now here’s a fun sagra that should get your tummy rumbling. Tasty grill-roasted galletto americano, taroz (a potato and green bean mash), and french fries – just 10€ and all of it washed down with cold beer. We drove north to Cosio Valtellino (Sondrio province) to see what this festival was all about and to my surprise, the galletto americano (also known simply as americanino) is none other than a Cornish game hen. Taroz is a dish that I tried making earlier this year, but this is the first time I’ve had it at a sagra.
Being that this was the first edition, we weren’t sure what to expect in terms of organization and attendance. It was pretty empty when the kitchen staff started serving at 7:30pm and it only began to fill up an hour later when we left. Still, the delicious food and foot-tapping country western music (Garth Brooks!) was such that I do hope this sagra will firmly establish itself in the community and grow to become a summer event for years to come. Bye y’all!
