PORCINI MUSHROOM FESTIVAL
October | Casal di Pari
Every year, between September and October, the Porcini Mushroom Festival is held in Casal di Pari, in the municipality of Civitella Paganico in the province of Grosseto. A gastronomic event to celebrate the king of the woods: the Porcino mushroom, which grows in the woods adjacent to the Casal di Pari countryside. Over the years the local population has managed to make the most of this product, making it the star of many traditional dishes and, since 1975, thanks to the Proloco di Casal di Pari, of this traditional event. A special recipe to be tasted is that of the fried mushroom: a unique gastronomic experience, a symbol of the local cuisine.
