The Story to live together

Francesca, an expert blogger of medieval cuisine, has discovered that the “Pastissada de Caval”, a typical dish of Verona, based on horse meat, finds its origins even in the ancient battle between King Odoacer and King Theodoric of 489 AD. The news is so striking that she decides to convene in Verona all the friends who share her same passion, to recreate and publish in real time on the blog photos, videos and details of the historical facts that can be recovered from the artistic finds hidden in the city and from the legends that are still handed down among cooks and sommeliers from Verona.
Francesca is waiting for you at the Antica Bottiglieria Baraldi and don’t forget to bring your smartphone!
