We met an Italian couple, Marco and Catarina, from Parma 2 weeks back in Aoste Valley.
They were walking the VF just for 2 days but we shared a meal and some fun.
Last night, they drove to Fornovo and picked us up and we drove another half hour to Trattoria Fopla in the middle of nowhere. We feasted on local food.
The torta fritta e spalla cotta d’asporto (fried bread with pancetta, prosciutto, coppa, and salami) was off the charts delicious.
Everything was delicious for that matter.
Marco and Catarina beat us to the bill which means we have to return to Parma. Looking forward to dining with our pilgrim friends again. — ￼eating dinner at Trattoria Fopla Da Gelsy.
