During our stay around Verona we went to Garda. Started our walk in Bardolino (famous from the wines) and walked along the lake to Garda. A beautiful spot along the lake with small streets and a little harbour. The place was deserted (we were there on a rainy Tuesday) and the christmasmarket with the Radicchio festival didn’t attrack many visitors. But even though it was nice to see another food festival in Italia.
Unfortunately it wasn’t like that. They ran out of risotto, so I asked for some other dishes. In the end we had meat with polenta, french fries (my Italian is not suprisingly good I figured, because I really thought that patatina fritta would mean a sort of omelette with patatoes and radicchio, but they were just french fries), salad of radicchio and a sweet cake with radicchio, which was suprisingly very good. The radicchio salad tasted really good, the radicchio from this region is the best I have ever tasted, not to bitter and in the sweet cake surprisingly sweet.
