Burrasca Food Cart Portland-103Sagra dell’Olio Nuovo at the Burrasca Food Cart Saturday November 1st from 2-5 PM

This Saturday from 2-5 PM the Burrasca Food Cart is having a special event from 2-5 PM – Sagra dell’Olio Nuovo.

Sagra dell’Olio Nuovo is a very Tuscan celebration of the season’s newly-milled olive oil.

The Sagra dell’Olio Nuovo that Burrasca is having this Saturday will feature special dishes, brand new Burrasca T-shirts, an olive oil tasting table from  Oregon Olive Mill, Vino’s Wine Shop (located right next door) will be offering free tastings of Italian wines, and I will on hand signing copies of my book – Portland Food Cart Stories which features Burrasca’s story of moving from Florence, Italy to Portland, Oregon to open a Food Cart!

Burrasca was founded last year by Paolo Calamai, and his wife Elizabeth Petrosian, and they are simply delightful people! If you have not been to Burrasca yet, Saturday would be a wonderful day to go!

Zuppa Lombarda

All day long ( until it sells out) Burrasca will offering a special dish – Zuppa Lombarda – a simple, classic Tuscan poor-man’s dish of cannellini beans cooked with sage. 

Elizabeth Petrosian puts it this way – “Zuppa Lombarda is the perfect, soul-satisfying way to showcase the flavor of olio nuovo”.


From 2-5 PM, Burrasca will be offering Fettunta – a Tuscan-style bruschetta featuring cart-made toasted bread rubbed with garlic and drizzled with olive oil.

The Regular Menu

Burrasca will also be offering the items that are on their regular menu which changes seasonally. Right now their menu includes amazing dishes like the Pappardelle al Cinghaile pictured above.

Pappardelle al Cinghaile is homemade ribbon pasta with a sauce of stewed wild boar and it is stellar!
