Fried food and cheeses at Pignasecca market
Hello! I am Emanuele and I was born and live in Naples, I am deeply in love with the whole gulf of which I consider myself a child, I love to get in touch with the contrasting and fragmented realities that characterize the Neapolitan area and in particular my beloved city, just as I love very much travel and discover cultures and customs different from mine. I have been working in tourism and public relations for 10 years, and I have always felt the need to deviate from the way of doing mass tourism, preferring a vision more oriented towards "travelers" rather than "tourists", putting in contact the people with the different colors of local realities and listen to the thousand voices and the thousand stories they tell. I am not a formal guide but rather I consider myself a cultural mediator between the traveler and the world I know, in order to help him feel part of the reality that surrounds him so that he can touch it with his hand, and experience it, rather than looking at it from the outside as in a shop window. I also believe that this is the best way to make everyone's experience more informal, spontaneous and genuine. So what are you waiting for? Are you coming for a friendly walk with me?
"Tell me what you eat and I'll tell you who you are" said Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, French gastronome and politician of the 19th century , and in fact, what better way to get to know the intimacy of a culture than through its food? It is a bit like entering people's houses, peeking into everyday life and exploring the tastes of a culture, which expresses its history, as well as the influences and events that have characterized its experience.
We will go to one of the oldest markets in Naples to explore the local products, with its peculiarities and its strong flavors, often born from the popular needs to feed creatively with few things available. On our trip we will have the opportunity to try local specialities things like mozzarella or provolone del monaco, but also "frittatine di pasta" and other nice ones, before arriving at the typical desserts and the Neapolitan coffee, unique in the world and strictly short and creamy, with its warm and enveloping aromas.
Our will be a journey where step by step we will educate the palate to house increasingly strong and determined flavors, and on this journey it will seem to start from the bottom to reach the top little by little, surely you will not regret it!
Let me know if you have any special food needs and I will think about some alternatives accordingly! 😋
