Thanks to the Istituto di Tutela Grappa del Trentino (Institute for the protection of Grappa of Trentino), and AIFB (Italian Association of Food Bloggers, of which I am a member), I’m back from a wonderful trip to Trento where the Institute organized a Food Contest dedicated to cooking with local grappas: La Grappa del Trentino nel piatto.
