Festival della Mostarda 6.0

The Festival della Mostarda 7.0 is an online and IRL event based in Cremona. It celebrates a typical product of our city: mostarda, which is a traditional Italian recipe used in ancient times to preserve fruit during the winter, using sugar and mustard.

This year the festival will take place from October 16th to November 30th 2021.

The Festival della Mostarda will be a special opportunity to discover interesting curiosities about mustard and all the local products, walking in the beatiful setting of Cremona.

"This is a dish of fruit candied in syrup, to which a dash of pepper and mustard powder has been added. It serves as sweet spice to the mild meats and sets them on fire, in a cool and lovely way, like moonlight burning on water. The fruit is luminously transparent, like semi-precious stones…."

E. Templeton, The Surprise of Cremona,London 1954, pp. 42-44
