The Pan-Zal (yellow bread) Festival takes place on October 17th and October 24, 2021, right when the saint Patron of Rosa (San Vito al Tagliamento) is celebrated (October 18th).

The “Pan-Zal” is a small sweet pumpkin focaccia, traditionally prepared in October by the people of Rosa.
The Festival takes place in a 2,000sqm heated paved pavilion, where different stands, a stage for the orchestra, and a dance floor are set.

The rich program makes the Festival widely popular with music, competitions, performances, food… obviously including the traditional pan-zal, served on ceramic plates with metal cutlery.

Pan-Zal – Yellow bread recipe:

Mix boiled pumpkin pulp with corn and rye flour, dried figs and a drop of grappa. Right before cooking, add yeast and fennel seeds to the dough.

Using a bowl, take the amount of dough necessary to make a small loaf of bread, which can be molded or wrapped in a savoy cabbage leaf. Cook it in the fireplace.
