What you'll do
Are you scared to try the MOST DISGUSTING foods of Palermo? You dislike the idea of eating cow's lungs or intestines? Then this experience is NOT made for you On the contrary, if you are brave enough you have the opportunity to "taste" a truly local experience, sharing meals with old and wise men and discover the most radicated culinary traditions and street food culture. In PALERMO HORROR FOOD TOUR we will taste several different street foods with a thing in common: everything is prepared with "frattaglie" entrails, these parts of the animal which is usually thrown away: stomach, intestines, spleen, lungs etc. Palermo has a millenary tradition of preparing entrails, which is now endangered: while the "milza" is still quite popular, many young Palermitan people neglect other recipies like the "frittola" or "caldume" which are often consumed only by old people and are becoming less and less common. In PALERMO HORROR FOOD TOUR the tradition of "frattaglie" is unveiled, eating bizarre but delicious food while encouraging local historical activities, interacting with the local community and gaining a novel perspective over the rich culinary tradition. Finally, everything is enriched by the city itself: to try the different food we will go around the four historical neighbourhoods and markets!
I fell in love with Palermo at first sight: that's why I moved here almost two years ago after completing a MSc in Innovation Management in the Netherlands. I strongly believe that Palermo has a unique chance to grow, also thanks to tourism, but there is a strong need of competent young people and new perspectives. That's why I made this choice against the flow and "emigrate" down south, where I'm now collaborating with some startups in the sustainable tourism field and I also developed a sustainable travel platform two years ago. I lived the past years trying to become "Palermitan" and I discovered many extraordinary things in this city, which I would like to share with travelers. One of my biggest passions is cooking and eating: when traveling my main objective is to try as many unknown dishes as possible!
