Leek day of Nosellari

The Nosellari leek is characterised by its large and very rounded base: the leaves fan out at the end of a rather small stem. The base is white fading to dark green at the ends. One leek weighs approximately 800 grams.

Leeks are transplanted in spring and harvested by hand from October onwards;

The taste of this leek is very delicate, which is why it has many uses in the local cuisine: it can be served boiled or used, together with the leaves, to prepare soups and risottos. The leaves can also be boiled on their own.

We wanted to dedicate an entire day to this splendid vegetable (Slow Food Presidium) in order to get to know it, taste it and why not... buy it.

You will learn all the secrets of its cultivation, from sowing to harvesting, and maybe even some typical recipes directly from the inhabitants of Nosellari.
