The database behind this site was the loving creation of Suzy Oakes, who has since passed away. She is greatly missed. You can see her obituary in the Guardian

A cookbook, featuring Suzy's favourite recipies, is available. People who are interested should contact Mun Flint. Currently, the cost is £12.50 plus postage and packing. All proceeds go to the Suzy Oakes Trust for Mill Road.

Language: Italian

Description: Marche is a region in central eastern Italy around Ancona, between the Appenines and the Adriatic. It also includes Urbino, Pesaro, Macerata and Ascoli Piceno. The coast provides masses of seafood, often served in tomato-based sauces. Ancona is famous for stoccafisso, a dried cod stew and brodetto, containing at least eight types of fish, is found all along the coast. The brodetto of Ancona contains at least 13. Also found on the coast is muscioli alla mafrinera. Rabbits abound in the mountains providing another well known dish, coniglio in porchetta. Even better, good quality white truffles are found on the slopes. Vincisgrassi is typical of the area. There are 10 DOC wines from the region.
