Tastes of Land and Sea

The cuisine and products of Delta Po Park are simple and essential: vegetables, rice, river and sea fish, but above all mussels have always characterized an area that has tried to optimize a territory which, because of the whims of the river Po, it was difficult to manage in the past. On the other hand, it is exactly thanks to the river that the area has become fertile and has enabled the production of quality products like rice, cultivated from time immemorial, garlic, and a niche product like the sweet potato, lately rediscovered also by refined cuisine. However, you cannot visit the Delta without eating fish: mussels and clams, sea bass, sea bream, eels, grilled or in more or less elaborate dishes are served in the local restaurants and trattorias. Moreover, if you really want to discover the Delta, you can experience recreational fishing activities in the channels and lagoons of the Po Delta, observe the mussel farmers working, fish and have lunch with the fish you have caught in the so-called cavane, the traditional fishermen's huts.
