My faithful jar of Vegemite has managed to travel right across Europe and be
welcomed enjoyed consumed by friends and strangers alike. Some enjoyed it and some well lets just say they gave it their best shot shall we.
Until now thought I’ve never had someone with the skill and experience in fine food to try this delightful Aussie battler. That was until I got in touch with Kenny who runs Italian food tours in Rome.
Now this isn’t just any food tour either, this is a four-hour sensation for the taste buds. I ate mozzarella di bufala as fresh as it could be, dined on pasta that danced down my throat and sampled just a few of the 45 varieties of tomatoes on offer at Carmelo’s stand in the local food market of Testaccio. This is the food tour of food tours if you love your italian dining.
So what better place to produce the old Vegemite and serve it up to one of the shops we were to visit that day right?
With thanks to Kenny we secured a tasting session with Alessandro at Volpetti, considered one of the best deli’s for your meats and cheeses in Rome (They have over 150 varieties of Italian cheese after all). Along with Alessandro the entire tour group I was on got to have a taste as well so check out the video below to see what they all had to say about it.
While my Eating Italy Food Tour was provided free, all views and opinions of Vegemite are my own.
