"Food, glorious food!" Personal Page by EurMeet

I was very pleased indeed to find that Bergamo has *excellent* food easily available. But I wasn't surprised...not only is it in Italy but it also has a bit of a reputation for good food...

I loved the aperetivi which are available in lots of bars/cafes between certain late afternoon/early evening hours. Free with your drink and (if you did what I did) three drinks in different places = three different plates of aperetivi (each bar has different nibbles) = no need to buy an evening meal. Some places have a buffet on the bar, some places provide you with your own set plate (as in the photo). Whatever..it's all yummy!

So...enjoy the photos. Plan and dream. Plan to forget the diet at least for the Eurmeet weekend: just relish all the tastes!

By the way, Sue and I consider 2 gelati a day to be a properly-balanced diet when visiting Italy. :-)

Cookies for Hansi (and anyone else who wants them).

Polenta cakes, a local speciality.

All the gelato flavours you can imagine. And then even more....
Suvanki recommends GROM in Citta Bassa- The altar she worships at!!!

Fancy a tranci (a slice of pizza...the variety of toppings is enormous)?

You'll often get a biscuit of some type to nibble with your Americano...

More bread and cakes than you can shake a stick at....

Pan Forte, cioccolato (look at the size of those bars!!), salame dolce, torrone....

Are you salivating yet? :-))
