Every day this month we’re going to be featuring a photo of street food from around the world. It’s all part of our celebration of Global Street Food, culminating in our event on May 1 at the Broad Stage. Email us your photo and we’ll post it on our blog.
This photo is from Dave Lieberman, who writes for the OC Weekly:
Cortina d’Ampezzo (or just Anpezo in the local Ladin language) sits on the linguistic border between the Italian-speaking province of Belluno and the German-speaking province of Bolzen/Bolzano. During the winter when the ski crowd heads up to the Olympic slopes, booths spring up on the Corso d’Italia selling waffles (cialde in Italian, Krügel in German) and hot mulled wine (vin brulè in Italian, Glühwein in German) for just a couple of Euros. There’s really nothing better than a hot waffle and hot wine on a frigid, snowy day—and the faces light up with surprise and pride when you respond with, “Dër bel giulan!” (Thank you very much in Ladin).
