The "franotiana" soup is a dish that representrs biodiversity at most, you make it with what is available at the moment, there is not a specific recipe, but all those who have grown up with this soup will know how to recognize one, although different in color, flavor and fragrance.
It represents the creativity of tradition, everything is permitted: a piece of bacon, croutons, herbs, as long as you do not infringe these unwritten codes .
It is the happy marriage between seasonal products, that could be simple aromatic vegetables from the garden or rare herbs, secret ingredients from the garden of nature and a valuable product such as extra virgin olive oil.
The local Slow Food convivium organizes in honor of the frantoiana soup, for some years now, an increasingly exciting "challenge" between professional and amateur cooks with direct elimination rounds and a final that will determine both the winner and the orientation of the flavor of the soup of the year.
The public jury, consisting of the same diners will have and taste blindly the soups in competition and fill-up the evaluation forms.
Special awards to the assiduous "pilgrims of the soup " those who will attend at least half of the scheduled dates.
