Black and White Wednesday #57

Anusha from Tomato Blues is hosting Black and White Wednesday this week and the subject of the photo this week are these fabulous Porri (Leeks) di Cevere.

There is something quite striking about these leeks and it is their height - well over 3 foot and nearing 4 - and most of the leek consists of that prime white part. They are so prized there is even a yearly festival - the Fiera del Porri which will be commencing November 10th in the nearby town of Cevere.

  1. As I just wrote in my post, you and I are on the same wavelength this week: my BW photo also shows leeks. I must admit I have never tasted this variety of leeks. I certainly wish I could visit the Fiera this Saturday.

  2. Amazing porri, I met them a few days ago for the first time at Salone del Gusto :-)
    All my friends went crazy and were so funny with those bunches coming out their trolleys :-)
    Nice shot!
