Perhaps it’s for good reason that L’Artigiano in Fiera has a restaurant page with just a listing of participants and not a bunch of enticing food photos to screw with your head. This was the hardest part of the fiera, a complete torture, because how can a person narrow down the plethora of dining choices and still remain sane? On the one end of the fairgrounds you’ve got the Americas, Europe, and Asia to deal with. Then on the other end there is all of Italy, and that, dear readers, is not meant to be taken lightly.
Sweets, treats, snacks, drinks, plates, combo deals, to take away, to sit down, to eat with your fingers, to eat with a fork – it was all there. It felt as if I gained 10 pounds just salivating over everything, and I bet I wasn’t the only one. In the end, we settled for African-style Funky Chicken BBQ and Dju Dju Mango beer. Cheap at 6.50€ (without beer) and 10€ (with beer) per plate. The chicken was spicy GOOD.
