Passignano sul Trasimeno -
|Olio del Trasimeno|
The local cooking is still very much influenced by the use of local produce such as extra-virgin oil from the Trasimene hills
The particularly delicate, almost sweet taste of this oil makes it ideal as a taste-adding ingredient or just by itself.
Local speciality dishes includemarinated and fried Agoni, fish soup, gli Catfish with asparagus ravioli, luccio gnocchi and Tegamaccio.
Legendary dishes of the past that are no longer inuse include Macco con le Lasche and the Zuppa coi ovi della regina
Local desserts include Torcolo della Nonna, with Vino Santo.
The local D.O.C. white and red wines of the Trasimene hills are an ideal accompaniment to any local meal.
