The Fettunta Party is back! Last year we had to cancel the event due to not reassuring weather forecasts, but we’re ready to get back to that curious behaviour of the first year of blogs, when events for bloggers did not exist yet, when you were forced to invent an occasion to meet fellow bloggers in real life. As tradition wants, it will be again on the 25th of April, Italy’s Liberation Day.
Just one day after the Three Acres Gathering we’ll open our garden, our heart and our pantry for our favourite annual event, a great way to meet fellow food enthusiasts and feast together.
Fettunta is another name Tuscans give to bruschetta, a toasted slice of bread doused in good olive oil. Guess what we’ll be eating?
Food bloggers, food enthusiasts and friends: two years ago we were more than 70 people to hang out in our garden surrounded by olive trees to eat, drink and be merry. How many guests there will be this year?
Join us for an afternoon in the countryside: we’re about one hour drive from Florence and less than thirty minutes from Siena. We just ask you to bring something to eat or drink, possibly home made, and we’ll share everything in a pot-luck feast under the olive trees. Countless slices of toasted bread will flow, doused with the best local olive oil. There will be cakes, pizza, crostini, fruit salads and fruit juices, tea, wine and cheese.
