Le Marche has a long history of upscale cuisine made using elaborate techniques and ingredients. Various stuffed dishes abound such as Ascoliís famous stuffed olives and porchetta, deboned and stuffed suckling pig. Its long Adriatic coastline boasts an array of fresh seafood (the local fishermanís stew, brodetto, includes 13 types of fish). Eggs add richness to pasta in Le Marche, where a passion for tagliatelle has travelled south from Emilia-Romagna. Gioacchino Rossini, composer of The Barber of Seville, remains Le Marcheís most famous gourmand, even inventing a number of dishes, many of which are still cooked today.
