Eat healthy and celebrate life while in Bibione
Festa Dell’Asparago is a must if you happen to be in Bibione in late April. The festival is typically held on April 25th, but dates can vary. It occasions you a delightful encounter with the absolute star of local cuisine: white asparagus. It is organized by Cooperativa Agricola Bibione in an attempt to educate the public in respect to organic farming and healthy eating.
A lot to explore in just a day! Piazza Mercato turns into an outdoor exhibition. Antique farming tools, insects crucial to organic farming, plants and gardening tools are showcased in order to inform the public about the importance of intelligent agriculture. And, of course, countless food stalls dripping with sausages, cheese, vegetables and wine (DOC labels) to prove organic farming is not good just for the environment, but also for your palate.
Keep in mind restaurants in Bibione are known for their respect for seasonal ingredients. This is that time of year when menus make way to asparagus. Do try the recipes: salad with seafood and asparagus, asparagus pie, asparagus omelet, gnocchi with asparagus, meats with asparagus and even asparagus ice cream. Indeed, even desserts!
Food, wine, entertainment, fireworks: the fixings of one of the most popular festivals in Bibione, namely, Septemberfest.
