Sanremo: flowers to eat
Patrizio meets Gianluigi Roverio, an exceptional guide in Sanremo for discovering the world of flowers that are to be looked at, but also eaten! Flowers, Giuseppe explains, are also used in the food sector, to prepare soft sweets, jellies and ice creams. Tradition and innovation at the same time, then, to overcome a moment of crisis and to respond to foreign competitors. Patrizio visits the laboratory, almost a factory! Actually it is the place in which Giuseppe’s family selects the flowers, washes them and minces them with a kind of mixer. The result is a liquid with little pieces of flowers in it to which some organic cane sugar is added. Finally, it is all pasteurized, put in pots and labelled.
This half-processed product, completely organic, will then be used for preparing jellies and jams.
And how much are flowers to be eaten appreciated? Judging from the medals and from the prizes that Giuseppe’s family has won, it seems that this tradition started by his grandmother enjoys great success!
