|San Marco port|
A couple of weeks back hubby spotted on Cilento Notizie's website
that there would be a sagra di paranza in San Marco this weekend
- 2 evenings when we could watch the day's catch be landed
at the port and then proceed to eat it.
|Gamberi don't come fresher than this|
For those of you wondering, 'sagra di paranza' means
'feast of fish' and that is, literally, what this is.
Gamberi & alice abound, an open air kitchen is set up
& locals and tourists alike pay their 8 Euros each
for their 'completi', receive a ticket & then queue
to receive this Italian version of 'fast food'.

Last night's sagra was quite a subdued affair compared to some
we've been to in previous years, but it is the end of the
holiday season & the only entertainment was watching the
fish being prepared & cooked. Zona Lago has a HUGE
sagra at the start of the season - funfair, live bands - and
thousands of people turn up for that one.

eager to eat, but the Italians tend to get their ticket then wander
off) & were dished up the final 2 servings from the first cooking
- never have we had such a fresh sagra cena.
