Italy is that country that nobody has anything against, right?
There are people who dream of knowing their wonderful coast, others admire their football and many others do not resist a good pasta dish.
Italy is not just pasta and proof of this is the culinary and cultural diversity we find at Taste of Little Italy, the annual festival that takes place in Little Italy here in Toronto.
In addition to being able to delight in a good pasta dish, you can take advantage of the opportunity to eat other typical dishes, such as arancini – risotto rice dumpling – and the irresistible Italian ice cream (gelato for the intimate ones).
And due to the changes of the neighborhood in recent years that ended up hugging many other nationalities, the festival is a great opportunity to meet new tastes even if they come from far away from the Mediterranean.
Besides eating (yes, there are other cool things in life besides eating) you can have fun with bands at various points of the festival playing typical songs.
I would even tell you to take a chance and spin around in tarantella. If you do some wrong step, no problem, you are in Toronto, foreigners forgive foreigners.
The festival takes place every year in June and you can get information about upcoming dates on the festival website.
