Italian style snack – The Italian Merenda
La Merenda is a typical snack time, part of the Italian diet, a timeless tradition that Italians continue to embrace.
Research shows that during the day it is important to snack in order to recharge the body, also because it allows to maintain balance on main meals.
La Merenda is a snack that should not be weighing you down: a small, moderate, healthy and varied meal to be had throughout the week.
It can be savory (such as a slice of bread and tomato with oil or a slice of focaccia) or sweet (a slice of cake or a fruit salad).
For children, la Merenda is a healthy break from study and from sports, and it helps bond with friends!
On December 13 at 5:00 pm, in the Garden of the Future, the Italian Pavilion at Expo Doha 2023, an Italian chef will present some examples of healthy Italian Merenda, prepared according to the recipes and with the ingredients that have made our cuisine famous throughout the world and a candidate to become a UNESCO World Heritage.
You are all invited!
