Every year in Pozzolo di Villaga spring is announced by the harvesting of the "BISI". The tasty peas of Pozzolo, in fact, arrive early, favoured by the particular composition of soil and ideal climate. Here, on this great plateau of the Berici Hills, the sun exposure and fields on the banks or terraces in the "coastal" area - always mild even on cold winter days - allow early production and, above all, give the "Bisi de Pozzolo" a truly unique flavour. No coincidence that in the past in May real markets were held here with 'foreign' buyers, who would then sell "Bisi" in nearby towns, to delight the palates of many enthusiasts.

Indeed, the tradition of the cultivation of peas has not been lost. The tasty and delicate 'Bisi de Pozzolo' remain the best seasoning for the "tajadele de casa", while the characteristic "risi e bisi" is still a sought-after dish. These and other specialities can be tasted with respect for tradition in many restaurants of the area, which still favour the traditional cuisine, simple and genuine.

The Municipal Administration continues its commitment to support this delicious product and, more generally, the hilly territory, by promoting the month of "Bisi de Pozzolo"; between May and June they will be the protagonists of the menus in the venues of Villaga, Toara and precisely Pozzolo, in an impressive culinary journey of our area.
