18/50.- Umbria, Landscape (1)


The hills around Orvieto are fertile. While the plains produce fruit, maize and rice, the hills produce wheat, wine, and olive oil, or provide grazing grounds for sheep and goats. In the forests, black and white truffles are found at the foot of oaks, and quite a few local dishes and sausages are flavoured with this precious delicacy. In Orvieto, a typical antipasto (the appetizer or first dish of a five-course meal) not infrequently consists of a choice of sausages and cured meats accompanied by olives and slices of melon. The local roast pig or rabbit may stuffed with a mixture of truffles, herbs, olives and pepper.
