Pordenone is a city rich in flavours to discover. From typical dishes to local wines.
Among the typical dishes that are often on the table of Pordenone houses, there is the Pitina, a cold cut that in recent years has been taken as an appetizer on a par with the more famous San Daniele. Remaining in the appetizers, the "Salam tal aset" is also known, a fresh salami cooked in vinegar, usually with onion.
For the first dish are extremely loved pasta / barley and beans soup, polenta gnocchi, risotto and orzotto. A Friulian dish par-excellence, also very popular in Pordenone, is the Frico with polenta. A very beloved second dish is the "Muset e brovada", the musetto with brovada. At the table there are often salted cod and frittata.
The wines of this area are typically those derived from the cultivation of Cabernet and Merlot grapes. There are also the Chardonnay, the Pinot and Sauvignon. With these grapes are produced wines that are generally classified according to the origin in two D.O.C., that of Friuli Grave and that of Lison-Pramaggiore.
