The “Seupa à la Vapelenentse" Festival
- 27 July 2019 - 28 July 2019
Vapelenentse is a soup which is made using one of the best-known recipes in local cuisine. It is a typical farmhouse dish made with stale white bread and Fontina cheese. The two ingredients are cut into slices and then placed in layers, one on top of the other and dipped in broth, then covered in melted butter and sprinkled with cinnamon before being baked in the oven. In the past, white bread was only bought for the sick and the elderly as it was so expensive, and this is why it was used to make this dish when it became dry.
This festival, which is a particularly light-hearted event, takes place every year in Valpelline and it is an ideal occasion to try this delicious recipe accompanied by music and popular folk dances.
