Buona sera,
In Griffith, the month of August concludes with A Taste of Italy: Griffith.  A three day celebration of Griffith's Italian heritage. While our plans for this weekend have changed we thought we would celebrate Griffith’s Italian heritage and culture anyway. Enjoy a different take on our Tourism Talk this month.  We look forward to welcoming you all sometime soon.
Ciao! Visit Griffith Tourism Team
Sam Trimboli
When you walk through the door at La Piccola Grosseria you instantly feel like you’ve been transported to Italy. Proprietor Sam is a strong advocate for Griffith and it’s Italian heritage. He and his family are always welcoming and they have a wonderful selection of local and imported ingredients. They also do a mean espresso and delicious panini that will leave you full for days! Be sure to put La Piccola Grosseria on your bucket list ready for when we can travel again! Don’t take our word for it, their Trip Advisor reviews speak for themselves!

Little Italy
The August edition of Gourmet Traveller had an 8 page feature of Griffith, labelling the town Little Italy. The feature pays homage to Griffith’s Italian culture and of course our plentiful Italian restaurants and cafes. You can read the full story here.

3 Days in the Riverina
In this month’s Gourmet Traveller Wine magazine there is a stunning feature on the Riverina wine region. It’s a glowing review on our wine region and outlines a three day itinerary on how to eat, drink and experience your way through the area. Read the full story here.
This restaurant wants to revive lost Italian dishes
Yesterday SBS Food released a wonderful story on local restaurant Zecca Handmade Italian. The article touches on owners Daniel, Michaela & Ben’s Italian heritage, their inspiration for Zecca and their lust for lesser-known recipes and forgotten pasta shapes. Read the full story here.

Olive oil is a staple in almost all Italian cooking. Morella Grove is locally owned and grown, headed by father and daughter duo Frank & Natasha Dal Bon. Morella Grove produce some of Griffith’s finest olive oil, their olives are grown chemically-free under the Mediterranean climate of the Wumbulgal Hills, near Griffith. You can purchase their olive oils and vinegars via the Morella Grove website. 

Has the SBS Food story made you hungry for pasta? Don’t worry Zecca’s handmade pasta is available to purchase on their website. The team at Zecca are passionate about producing the highest quality pasta possible using the best traditional Italian techniques. They even have gluten free pasta for their GF amici! They also have some tips for cooking your pasta and a recipe for a delicious Ragu. 

The Visit Griffith team were so excited for this year’s A Taste of Italy: Griffith merchandise. Here is a sneak peak of the tea towel and wooden spoons. We can’t wait for you to see them in the flesh when the Griffith Visitor Information Centre reopens.  

Do you know the story behind our local attraction Hermit’s Cave? Over 90 years ago Italian migrant Valerio Ricetti arrived on the outskirts of Griffith NSW. He created a home in a rock overhang and so began the legend of Hermits Cave. Earlier this year Australian Geographic released a stirring recollection on the plight of Valerio Ricetti, the Legend of Hermit’s Cave. You can read the full story here.
