Bred Bite: Le Marche

by Dejou Marano


Picture sprawling emerald forests, medieval hilltop towns untouched by time, a rainbow of wildflowers in bloom and fresh breezes that lull you into a peaceful haze. Tuscany? Think again. Umbria? Warmer. Le Marche? Could you be anywhere else?

Upon arriving in Le Marche you are immediately struck by its unspoiled beauty, time seemingly to have never touched the boundaries of this undiscovered region. Its stone structures warmed by ancient sun and its vineyards perfumed by Adriatic winds, as the Monti Sibellini ridge keeps steady watch over its terra firma.

From the infinite landscapes of Raphael’s masterpieces to Rossini’s operatic melodies, the Marchegiani have long been inspired by the enchanting embrace of their home. A veritable land of milk and honey, where pure joy can be sampled in every dish, seen from every window and enjoyed by all who stop to admire.


  • People have inhabited the region of Le Marche dating back to prehistoric times, followed by the Sabine, Piceni and Romans.
  • The national park of Mount Sibillini spans 70,000 hectares and is described by local folklore to be the burial ground of Pontius Pilate.
  • Le Marche is the birthplace of the Renaissance master Raphael, composer Gioachino Rossini and poet Giacomo Leopardi.
  • Physician and educator Maria Montessori was born in Chiaravalle where she developed the Montessori method of teaching children.
  • Le Marche typical dishes include vincigrassi (a type of lasagne), olive alla ascolana (fried olives), coniglio al forno (oven baked rabbit), braciola all’urbinate (braised veal loin filled with egg and casciotta cheese), passatelli all’urbinate (spinach and meat dumplings) and delizia del montefeltro (little ravioli with butter and sliced truffle).
  • Le Marche’s wines include Rosso ConeroSpumante di Serrapetrona and Colli Pesaresi Rosso.
