Gorizia Gorizia Pordenone Pordenone Trieste Trieste Udine Udine

This region features beautiful Adriatic beaches, stunning mountain views, and vineyards. Largely undiscovered by tourists, Friuli-Venezia-Giulia shares borders with Austria and Yugoslavia.

The fusion between the Po Valley and the Alps form the foundation of the region's cuisine yet Austrian, Yugoslavian, and Oriental influences are easy to spot. Corn is the principal crop, followed by beans, and fruits and vegetables, including white turnips, asparagus, and the pleasantly bitter dwarf chicory. Dumplings (gnocchi) are one of the region's specialties and may be made of potatoes, squash, or stale bread. Pork is the poor man's meat of choice, but Friulians also catch all kinds of seafood off the Adriatic.

The region's recipes adorn spices, sweet and sour sauces, and smoking techniques. Smoked prosciutto is found throughout the area, as is smoked ricotta and smoked trout--all of which are rare or nonexistent in other parts of Italy. Most of the region's desserts, including baked orange custard and the strudel, reflect its foreign influence.

Although the region accounts for a tiny percent of Italy's wine production, some of the county's best wine is found here. Friuli produces a refined Cabernet, a fruity Merlot, and the hearty Refosco, as well as dry and fruity whites Pinot Bianco, Pinot Grigio, Riesling Renano, Sauvignon, and Tocai.

Pordenone

 

Pordenone

Pordenone Friuli Venezia Giulia Italy The name comes from the latin "Portus Naonis" meaning the port on the river Noncello (Latin Naon). For many centuries it was a Germanic area in the Friuli territory. In 1968 Pordenone became capital of the newly established province with the same name, including territory previously belonging to the province of Udine.

Population: about inhabitants -- Zip/postal code: 83 -- Phone Area Code: 0824

Pordenone was founded in the High Middle Ages but there were already villas and agricultural settlements in the Roman age. In 1378 the city passed to the Habsburg family, forming an Austrian enclave within the territory of Patriarchate of Aquileia. In the 14th century Pordenone grew substantially due to the flourishing river trades. In 1514 it was acquired by the Republic of Venice, under which a new port was built and the manifactures improved. After 1815 Pordenone was included in the Kingdom of Lombardy-Venetia. The railway connection and the construction of the Pontebbana road implied the decline of the port, but spurred a substantial industrial development (especially for the working of cotton). Pordenone was annexed to Italy in 1866. The cotton sector, however, decayed after the destructions of World War I and the 1929 crisis, to never recover at all.

What to taste What to taste:

• You will generally see broths, vegetable soups and risottos, and there are also the dumplings and "panada" (stale bread soup). Specialities: cold cuts such as pitina and local cheese like Montasio or Asin (malga cheese with soft and creamy spread). As far as main courses, there is mostly meat: boiled or stewed meat and, especially, game (wild boar, pheasant, hare). The typical main course is the muset, pork meat, with a side of brovada, turnips marinated in vinegar. It is also possible to taste the typical omelette with salami, the frico (fried cheese) and the pastissada (corn meal with cheese, butter and meat sauce).
• The common desserts are corn flour cookies, Pinza (sweet pizza) and Dolce di Spilimbergo (dessert made with almonds) are really common.
